Nine years ago today, Tokio Hotel released their first single “Durch den Monsun” and their “over-night” stardom began. Can you imagine, Aliens, next year we’ll be celebrating 10 years?! For years we have all been in this fandom and on this journey together. Through the good and the bad times and it all started with a song release nine years ago. <3
Three years ago we started our own little anniversary tradition of sharing this “Durch den Monsun/Monsoon” video collage made by Robyn:
Of course there are also the music videos: “Durch den Monsun” and “Monsoon“. So drop by and give them a few plays.
Make sure to join Aliens around the world in spreading the #9JahreDurchdenMonsun hashtag on Twitter all day today.
Another video favourite is the “Making Of” the DdM music video!

Aliens, August is off to an extremely good start with many exciting news!
On 3rd August Bill posted a pic of himself at the hairdressers with the caption: “hair day – getting ready for the first video shoot #tokiohotel #bleach #blond #foils #alien #videoshoot #newsingle #2014″
So that means a video for the first single is being filmed! Can’t wait to see it and hear the song.
Then Tokio Hotel announced that Tokio Hotel TV will be back – with a new logo! The wait will be over soon because from 13th August 2014 there will be a new episode again EVERY Wednesday.
Today they will publish a full season trailer and here is already a preview… which pretty much single-handedly answers the question everybody has been asking for the past four years – Why is the new album taking so long? The answer is: Bill. HAHA! Bless Tom for his patience, eh?
While Tom and Gustav still haven’t started to post pictures on their Instagram accounts Bill has been rather busy (check out all his pics including Tom, Pumba and more HERE) and Georg seems to be enjoying it as well. He also posted quite a few pictures already and recently published this adorable entry of himself and Gustav in a photo booth:
So make sure to also bookmark his Instagram account and follow him to not miss out: Georg’s Instagram
Exciting news! Though news about the next Tokio Hotel album are only coming in drips and drops, there has been a rather exciting development… “Album Cover Shooting… Done!” Oh yes, it seems the guys have finished a photo shoot for the new album and you can get a little sneak peek of Bill posing in front of a camera in this blog update:
Besides the new Tokio Hotel blog being really active recently, the guys have also decided to all launch their own Instagram channels! Pretty cool news, eh? It’s great to see the band getting more and more active on social media and today Bill was the first to launch his Instagram account. Of course the first picture he posted was one with Pumba. We except many more of this little cute puppy to follow. Click on the image…
A lovely video teaser of the guys in the studio. They’re really getting us excited for the new album.
Exciting news! TH have started to publish something on their website and the new blog is full of pictures which they will keep updating so make sure to keep an eye on it. You can also find a button for it in our sidebar.
It’s birthday time again! Today Georch celebrates his birthday and Tokio Hotel posted this picture of him to congratulate. All the best also from us at THUKST! <3 We hope he has a lovely day.
It’s this dreaded month full of madness again… yes, it’s March which means MTV is hosting its Musical March Madness tournament. The boys recorded a video message to encourage their Aliens to vote for them again this year, even though last year was quite a mess. Even Pumba, Bill’s new puppy, gets roped in to promote the voting and “Tokio Rangers” was already a worldwide Trending Topic on Twitter. Even better, Bill mentions that a new Tokio Hotel album will get released this year! Let’s hope so. ><
Thanks to @BTKTwinsArchive for uploading the video message to youtube because as always it wasn’t viewable for most Aliens on the MTV page.
