BOP: Happy New year! What was your highlight of 2009 and what are you looking forward to in 2010?
Bill: Releasing the new album was a highlight for us. We had a long and intense period working on the new songs, and it feels wicked to share all this with the world.
Tom: For 2010, we are just thrilled to be on tour in support of our Humanoid album and a huge new show, which is going to be amazing.
BOP: When you are onstage, can you see the fans?
Tom: It depends on the light and the venue. Sometimes it is really dark and you can’t see a thing, but most of the time we see pretty much everything.
BOP: Speaking of fans, who screams louder – American fans or European fans?
Bill:That is a tough question – I’d say it’s a tie. Our fans scream as loud as they can at all of our concerts! The louder our fans scream, the better.
BOP: Who is the messiest person in the band? Who is the funniest?
Tom: Georg is the messiest without a doubt and he’s also the funniest… but certainly not on purpose. He’s such a clumsy guy and that alone makes us laugh so much. He’s a natural.
BOP: Do you use American slang? Do you dream in English or German?
Tom: I use “chillin’ ” quite often – I think that is a cool word. We dream in German most of the time, but when we are in the US for a long time, I find myself dreaming in English sometimes.
BOP: Would you ever date a fan?
Bill: It doesn’t really matter to me who I fall in love with – it can totally be a fan, but it needs to click. I’m still searching for true love and I’m sure that I’ll find it eventully.
