Tokio Hotel Continues to Conquer the Globe

by Nadya Vlassoff







It is extremely difficult for a band, any band, to bridge the gap
between international markets and the lucrative United States
landscape. Tokio Hotel, who hail from Magdeburg, Germany, have been one
of the few hugely successful rock acts to make the leap with an
increasing amount of success. The Tokio foursome of Bill Kaulitz, Tom
Kaulitz, Gustav Schafer, and Georg Listing recently released their
third studio album, Humanoid on October 2, and have seen their star
rise in the U.S. due to the popularity of singles, "Automatic" and
"World Behind My Wall".







Tokio Hotel began their ascent to the top of the music industry
when they were signed to Sony BMG earlier in the decade but were
dropped in 2005 prior to the release of their first album. Universal
Music saw the potential in the German teen rockers and quickly picked
up the contract from Sony.Tokio Hotel released "Durch den Monsun"
(Through the Monsoon) as their first single but the second single,
"Schrei" (Scream) became an even bigger follow-up, which led to English
translations and Tokio Hotel’s first full-length English album, Scream
in 2005.



Aside from critical acclaim, various nominations and accolades at
international awards shows, plus thousands of screaming fans worldwide,
Tokio Hotel soon tapped into the music DVD market for even greater
success while also balancing the conflict between pirated downloads,
sales, and legal digital downloads. Connecting with the fans,Tokio
Hotel released their behind-the-scenes DVD Tokio Hotel TV- Caught on
Camera last December, which included backstage footage of Tokio Hotel
with fan access plus featurettes on the journey of Tokio Hotel. A
special deluxe edition was later released with a second Tokio disc,
Future - The Road to the New Album.






As proof of international popularity of Tokio Hotel, front man, Bill
Kaulitz was immortalized in wax at the famous Madame Tussauds Museum in
Berlin in September 2008. Kaulitz is the youngest person to have been
given the honor and his trademark androgynous look has since become one
of music industry’s most recognizable alternative images.



October was a busy month for Tokio Hotel after a whirlwind of press
and media dates that spanned Europe and North America. On November 5 in
Berlin, Tokio Hotel beat out a slew of music heavyweights like the
Black Eyed Peas, Jonas Brothers, and Green Day when they won the MTV
Europe Music Award for best Group.



In an interview with Myspace Music Feed, Tokio Hotel spoke about
the difference between playing arenas in Europe as compared to the
smaller clubs and venues in the United States. Bill called it intimate
in relation to the larger, more crowded stage of the U.S. However, at
the paceTokio Hotel is taking over the world, it won’t be long before
Tokio Hotel sells out venues all over the U.S.



With a lengthy tour schedule in support of Humanoid, the guys of
Tokio Hotel have encountered their fair share of setbacks, including a
tour hiatus after Bill went into surgery to remove a cyst on his vocal
chords during the band’s 1000 Hotels Tour. Bill andTokio Hotel have
since recovered and continue their push into the mainstream American
market. Humanoid has a futuristic, alt-electro-based atmosphere that
gives Tokio Hotel a unique sense of individuality in a market with so
many mainstream copycats. Interestingly, with Humanoid, Tokio Hotel has
evolved without completely alienating their original style of music,
and more importantly, their loyal fan base.






Now that Tokio Hotel has brokered a distinctive sound to go with their
dark but explosive alt-image, there’s no slowing down for Germany’s
biggest band on the scene today. Although Tokio Hotel has conquered
nearly every continent and have been certified 10x platinum, the German
rockers have quickly invaded North America on their way to becoming the
new generation’s supergroup. With all eyes and ears trained on Tokio
Hotel, the German foursome has become one of the most buzzworthy bands
on the internet. Most recently, Tokio Hotel officially confirmed "World
Behind My Wall" as the second single from Humanoid while their song
"Human Connect to Human" became the background track for the highly
touted Verizon Droid phone. With North America as the only territory
left to fully conquer, the guys of Tokio Hotel are only beginning to
realize their as a band after a six year journey to the top of the
global music scene. It’s an amazing Tokio feat when you think that Bill
and twin brother, Tom, were only 13 years old in 2003.
