Five years they remained away to take scenarios from a new life and to rediscover their musical path, Tokio Hotel return with Kings of Suburbia, their fourth Album. In an interview for StarMedia members Bill and Tom Kaulitz told details of it’s new production. Here’s what they said!
1. What do you feel in his comeback after 5 years of absence from music?
Bill: “we were not at all away because we were working in the Studio doing Kings of Suburbia and we are now happy to be back to show people this new album. We also miss our fans, the stage and introduce ourselves live.”
2. kings of Suburbia sounds completely different to what you have done, why make such a radical change?
Tom: “on the sound of the new album, we are very happy because it was a whole process write songs and produce them. We try to do something different, authentic and I can say that we like all the songs that are on the disk.”
3. which of the songs do you feel you most identified?
Bill: “it is difficult to say one only because we produced the entire album, made mixtures and work hard. We took enough time doing and put lots of love. What we hear can be different everyday, for example now is Love who loves you back that is a great song“.
4. What is the story behind the title of the Kings of Suburbia album and song that bears this name?
Bill: “we had the idea of naming it Kings of Suburbia on a trip to Germany. It came by that feeling you have when you’re young you feel the King of your universe, wanting to do what you like. That was a feeling we share with everyone when we did the record. It also has relation with our lives because all come from different suburbs of Germany“.
5. Who thought of the concept of the video Girl got a gun? What d you say to criticisms that you’ve received?
Bill: “we are very happy with the video and believe it is one of the best we have done. We create the concept together with the director Kris Moyes who is a very innovative person. We wanted something cool and new because the song has an interesting sound. I had the idea of including drag queens and Kris made the proposal for the costumes and makeup. We really liked it and it is normal that there are people who like it and those who do not“.
6. Will you include Mexico in his international tour?
Tom: “We are planning the tour, I think that we will start in the spring of 2015. Mexico will be included and we will also go for promotion before the end of the 2014. We get messages with much love from our Mexican fans, and it is something that we are grateful for.”
7. How would you define the album Kings of Suburbia in a few words?
Bill: “It is very personal, electronic, full of life, with much love and is one of the best albums that the band has done“.
