really interesting article. Hoping for a proper translation.

http://www.volksstimme.de/vsm/nachrichten/sachsen_anhalt/sachsen_anhalt/?em_cnt=1499038

In the meantime here's google translation with some obvious correctiopns by me (such as song titles):

The band Tokio Hotel, "published in the next week their third album," Humanoid "

From Magdeburg backyard on a world tour


By Oliver Schlicht

Magdeburg. Schramm developed in 2001 in a backyard in Magdeburg-Sudenburg four twelve-to fourteen guys on their instruments. Your children's band they called "Devilish" - teuflisch. Tom, Bill, Gustav and Georg are now millionaires. Eight years after Sudenburg should "be built Tokio Hotel" In these days of world stars.

Actually, it's a joke in rock history: "But at the moment precisely two" east-bands to compete "in a direct duel for the title of being Germany's most successful rock export of all time. These two bands might be the target audience here more different.


The metal rockers Rammstein publish after two years on 16 October their sixth album, "Love is for everybody." The musicians come from Schwerin, Chemnitz and Berlin and have GDR punk bands like "The Your Ear" and "Feeling B played. The four much younger musicians of "Tokio Hotel" - born from 1987 to 1989 - are musically in the reunification of Magdeburg-raised. Their third album, "Humanoid" will also appear after two breaks in the coming week on 2 October.

Two bands fighting for first place

What does the "bad guys" by "Rammstein with "Tokio Hotel, the teenage crowd have in common except the similar roots? A lot. In the past, the success: "Rammstein" previously sold twelve million records, "Tokio Hotel" has already sold five million. Currently, both compete for # 1 on the German single charts. Today each appeared a week ago, on 18 September as the first single of the two new albums, the singles Pussy by Rammstein and Automatisch of Tokio Hotel.

And indeed around the globe. Rammstein singing Pussy in a German-English mix. The not quite mature lyrics are about love for the fast easy women. To the disappointment of a false love is in Automatisch. Thus Tokio Hotel really good for a worldwide marketing, was the new Humanoid album recorded completely bilingual. So now echoes the English single Automatic in Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro or Dallas on the radio, Automatisch sounds in German-speaking part of Europe.


And the current placement? International appear Pussy and Automatic/Automatisch for the first time just ten days after the first publication in the various national charts - so until next week. For these lists, sales of sound recordings and music sales in the Internet download portals contributed equally.

In Germany, Media Control issues in addition to these weekly charts but also so-called Daily Trends. They are daily sales sheets with a two-day delay. "Rammstein" captured on 18 September from the start position 1 of the Daily charts, "Tokio Hotel" landed on the same day on position 2 As of yesterday, are Tokio Hotel slipped to 9th place, while Pussy and currently Germany's best-selling single is.


Now does the alarm bells ring with Universal Music, the record label of Tokio Hotel? Melanie Fürste, the press manager for the band, dismiss it. "Many younger fans do not buy the single, but wait for the album," she says. Sascha Wernicke, music editor and "Tokio Hotel" expert on the youth magazine Bravo also suggests another reason: "Teenagers do not have credit cards. So they buy their music very much less than other people to download portals on the Internet."

Was truly in the list of the most downloads the single Automatisch to Musicload. Com yesterday only ranked 61 of the top-100 ( Pussy at number 36). When Apple's download service iTunes climbed "Automatic" in the past two days, at least from position 57 to position 45 (Pussy last place Cool.


Perhaps the reticence lies with the younger fans so well at the new sound of "Tokio Hotel"? "A lot of adult" finds Bravo Wernicke-editor of the new record. That would not necessarily be bad. "Even the fans from 2005 are now four years older."

In fact, Humanoid by Tokio Hotel sounds - pardon me - not even like Teeniepop, but like the very mature album by a loud metal band. Like meeting Rammstein. Both bands have recorded their latest albums the way, completely independently of each other in California, and can mix. Perhaps it is indeed that.


Surely be the reason why the new songs from Tokio Hotel therefore, in the English versions often sound much catchier than in German. It sounds simple one number cooler if Bill Kaulitz does not have to sing about a "Sonn-Nen-Sys-Tem," but instead of "Darkside of the sun".

The people's voice would have liked to talk shop also times two or three sentences with the Magdeburg guys on the new album. Sarah Ostermann - im charge at Universial music for the international press work of Tokio Hotel - knows the tight schedule of the band: Tomorrow, Saturday comes "Tokio Hotel" on a MTVEvent in Rome. "Then they are in France, Stockholm, Helsinki, Finland. Then again, in Italy and Spain. On October 9, is still an MTV concert in Greece and then the dates are in the U.S.." Newspaper interviews, guest appearances on TV shows and radio stations . In between one or another "spontaneous" concert. The PR machine is running just warm.

An apartment in Hollywood

"Bravo" editor Sascha Wernicke one of the few journalists who have recently who got to interview Tokio Hotel. Bravo published Wednesday a story that Bill and his twin brother Tom Kaulitz want to look for an apartment in Hollywood. Both have lived for some time at home in Hamburg.

Is Tokio Hotel Magdeburg still have a band? Wernicke, "Well, Gustav and George still live in Magdeburg, and who wish to remain, they have assured me in an interview." George had also been half a year, a friend whom he met in Magdeburg. "She wants to do a lot less than he did in public," the "Bravo" journalist.


That drummer Gustav remains still at home, "active" is to know the fans at least since he got in July in a Magdeburg disco hit on the nose. There he had seen perhaps a bit much to drink. It aims at Handgreifl ichkeit them girls have gone.


Certainly not the kind of girl from whom Rammstein currently so successful singing. Since the new sound may sound so heavy and mature. Pussys do not fit the clean image of "Tokio Hotel".

Tokio Hotel release their third Album "Humanoid"
From the Magdeburger Backyard to a world tour

Magdeburg. 2001 the four 12-14 year old Boys spent their time with playing their instruments in a backyard in Magdeburg-Sudenburg. They called themselves "Devilish". Tom, Bill, Gustav and Georg are now Millionaires. Eight years after Sudenburg "Tokio Hotel" are now global stars.

Actually it's a joke in the history of Rock: But at the moment two "East-Bands" compete for the title of germanys biggest Rockexport of all time. At the same time these two Bands couldn't be more different when it comes to their target audience.

The Metalrocker from "Rammstein" are releasing, after a 2-year break, on October 16th their sixth Album "Liebe ist für alle da". The Musicians are from Schwerin, Chemnitz and Berlin and played in GDR-Punkpands like "The Inchtabokatables" and "Feeling B". The four - much younger - musicians from "Tokio Hotel", born between 1987 and 1989, grew up - musically - in the time of Reunification-Magdeburg. Their 3rd Album "Humanoid" will be released - also after a 2-year break - next week on October 2nd.

Two Bands fighting for Place #1
What do the "bad boys" from "Rammstein" have in common with "Tokio Hotel", the Teen-Swarms, except of the same roots? A lot. In the past it was the success: "Rammstein" already sold 12 Million Records, "Tokio Hotel" 5 million. Currently both are fighting for the 1st place in the german Single Charts. A week ago - September 18 - the first single from their new Albums were released: "Pussy" from "Rammstein" and "Automatisch" from "Tokio Hotel".

And this all around the world. "Rammstein" is singing "Pussy" in a German-English-Mix. The not so family-safe Lyrics are about fast love with easy women. "Automatisch" is about disappointment of a false love. Thus "Tokio Hotel" can still be marketed worldwide, the new Album "Humanoid" was recorded in two languages. So the english Single "Automatic" is being played at the Radio Stations in Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro or Dallas and "Automatisch" in the german-speaking parts of Europe.

And the current placement? International "Pussy" and "Automatisch/Automatic" will appear in the different national Hitlists ten days after release - thus in the following week. For those Lists the sales of the records and the music-sales in the Internet download portals are considered equally.

In Germany "Media Control" publishes, besides the weekly charts, also the so-called Daily-Trends. Those are daily sale-statements with a two-day delay. "Rammstein" ranked on place #1 on September 18 in the Daily-Trends, "Tokio Hotel" ranked, on the same day, on #2. As of yesterday "Tokio Hotel" slipped on place #9, while "Pussy" is still the most sold Single in Germany.

Is the alarm going off at Universal Music, the record label of "Tokio Hotel"? Melanie Fürste, the press-responsible of the Band waves it aside. She says: "A lot of the younger Fans don't buy the Single, because they're waiting for the Album". Sascha Wernicke, Music Editor and "Tokio Hotel"-Expert at the youth magazine "Bravo" mentions another reason: "Teenager don't have credit cards. That's why they buy their music less from download portals in the internet, like other people do."

In fact in the Hitlist of the most downloaded Singles at Musicload.de "Automatisch" was yesterday on place #61 of the Top 100 ("Pussy" on #36). At iTunes "Automatisch" climbed, in the last two days, from place #57 on #45 ("Pussy" on #Cool

Perhaps the restraint of the younger fans is also there because of the new Sound of "Tokio Hotel"? The Bravo-Editor Sascha Wernicke describes the new Album as "More grown-up. But it doesn't have to be a bad thing. The Fans from 2005 are now also 4-years older."

Indeed: "Humanoid" from "Tokio Hotel" absulutely doesn't sound - pardon - like Teen-Pop, but more like an Album of a grown-up Metal-Band. By the way: Both Bands recorded and produced their new Albums independently in California. Perhaps that's why.

Certainly that's why the new english Songs from "Tokio Hotel" are much catchier than the german Versions. It sounds cooler when Bill Kaulitz doesn't have to sing about a "Sonn-Nen-Sys-Tem" (engl.: Solar System) but instead about the "Dark Side of the Sun".

Volksstimme would have liked to talk with the boys from Magdeburg about their new Album. Sarah Osterman - responsible of the international press of "Tokio Hotel" at Universal Music - knows the Calendar of the Band: Tomorrow on Saturday "Tokio Hotel" has an appearance at a MTV Event in Rome. "Then they'll be in France, Stockholm, Helsinki and then they're going back to Italy and Spain. On October 9 there's another MTV-Concert in Greece and then the Dates for the US will follow." Interviews for Newspapers, Guest-appearances in TV-Shows and at Radio Stations. In between one or two "spontanous" Concerts. The PR-Machine is running.

A Flat in Hollywood
"Bravo"-Editor Sascha Wernicke is a part of the few Journalists who recently got to schedule an Interview-Date with "Tokio Hotel". On Wednesday "Bravo" published a story, which says that the twin brothers Bill and Tom Kaulitz want to look for a flat in Hollywood. Both of them are living in Hamburg.

Is "Tokio Hotel" still a Band from Magdeburg? Wernicke: "Gustav and Georg are still living in Magdeburg and they also want to stay there, they assured me in the Interview." Georg has a girlfriend since 6 months, which he got to know in Magdeburg. "She wants to stay out of the public eye a lot more than him", the "Bravo"-Editor says.

The Fans knew that drummer Gustav was still "active" at home, at the latest, when he got attacked in a Disco in Magdeburg. Perhaps he had too much to drink. He got attacked because of a girl.

But the attack was certainly not about a Girl which "Rammstein" are currently successfullly singing about. The new Sound may sound heavy and grown up, but "Pussys" don't fit in with the "Clean-Image" of "Tokio Hotel"
