Fantastic news! Not only will Tokio Hotel return to play a mini gig at their home area of Magdeburg but also 22 very lucky fans will be able to be there for it. Radio SAW has the band coming to their station on 5th October where they will play a few songs from their new album “Kings of Suburbia”. The lucky fans who can attend will also get autographs and photos with the band.
Here’s a German trailer message posted by Radio SAW for the event with some information and Bill talking:
It’s the comeback of the year! And now the sensation: they’ll celebrate their live comeback in their hometown at Radio SAW.
Bill: Hey, we are Tokio Hotel. We’re celebrating our new album “Kings of Suburbia” live and you’ll be there with us.
On Sunday, 5th October, they’re giving a very small, exclusive and intimate concert for SAW listeners, just for you!

Finally it’s here, the video to Tokio Hotel’s second song teaser from the upcoming album “Kings of Suburbia”: Girl Got A Gun
The director also posted an uncensored version if you’re interested: HERE
The current issue of German magazine “Der Spiegel” features a very interesting article about Tokio Hotel. It talks about the their new video for their first single “Love who loves you back” which will be released this Friday. However, another very interesting part of the article is about the twins’ move to LA and what led to it. It’s can be a bit heart-breaking to read how bad the situation had gotten for them but the main thing is that they had the opportunity to find peace for a while to enjoy life, re-charge their batteries and are back! <3

Bill in LWLYB video scene picture: Tokio Hotel singer Bill Kaulitz at a shooting in Los Angeles: “Slightly tongue-violated”
Bill and Tom individual pictures: Musicians Bill, Tom Kaulitz: “We do what we want.”
Pop [music] – They were teen stars from a village near Magdeburg. As mega stars they fled to Los Angeles. And nowadays?
Bill kisses. Subject, predicate. Simple sentence, however, the act itself is complicated. “I’ve never kissed anyone on camera before”, says Bill, “I’m utterly shy.”
Shooting the first scene for the video of Tokio Hotel’s new single in Los Angeles: Bill Kaulitz sits in the middle of the sofa, to his right the brunette, to his left the blonde, behind him the redhead and all around [him] young, pretty, half-naked people, all tightly entangled, all kissing.

US radio presenter JoJo Wright kept his word and tried hard to get an interview with Tokio Hotel. As the Gs are currently in LA and they’re all doing interviews as a band, they also stopped by at JoJo’s. You might remember that he interviewed the guys some years ago when they were touring and promoting in the US and it was a lot of fun. This time he also asked fans to tweet him questions which he then asked the guys. So far he posted a first part on his website, just to talk about the upcoming album in general and the questions will follow in a seperate video/s.
JoJo also shared a little teaser video about the interview with the guys on his Instagram a couple of days ago.
This is an exciting week. There has been a new THTV episode on Wednesday about the Making Of of “Run Run Run” and this Friday the will publish another song from the album “Kings of Suburbia” with a video! Next Friday they will do the same with the first lead single of the album which will be released on 3rd October 2014 in Germany. It has also been confirmed that they will appear on German show “Wetten dass?!” on 4th October 2014 so we an assume they will all be flying back together to Germany and hopefully a few more interviews etc. will follow in their home country (and native language^^).
Bill got the boss chair. XD Don’t forget to share the video, click “thumps up” and comment. Also tweet JoJo a thanks.
A few days ago TH told fans to tweet questions which they picked a few from and posted the answers on their Facebook page:
You asked about RUN, RUN, RUN – here are our answers:
Bill, what inspired your look for this video?
Bill: The song itself. The pureness and the simplicity. I always wanted to work with my close friend Gianluca Fellini who is a very talented artist and for that video i knew we would see eye to eye. It was the perfect symbiosis and we created something great together. The shoes were my idea though
Is this the lead single of the new album?
Georg: The lead single is gonna be the third one we release….the third video you guys gonna see. I am so excited for that song and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.
Where are Georg and Gustav in the Run, Run, Run video?
Bill: Georg and Gustav are gonna be in the video for the actual lead single. Of course! They didn’t participate in the Run shoot simply because there is no other instrument than the piano. They loved the video though… we are all happy with it.
Tom: For us as a band it’s not about ego or who is most on the screen or any of that shit. We always want to create what’s best for the band and what we love. There is no such thing as fighting about who is in the video or who is not. The same is the case for the artwork or album cover….it’s about the art and what feels right.
