In August the guys of Tokio Hotel come back to Latin America five years later his first show in the continent. Then, the German band were in Chile with his album “Humanoid” and rounded up 9000 fans at Movistar Arena.
Since this day (November 28th) the band has changed more things. The most important thing, the look of Bill Kaulitz (singer), from a baroque look to a more simple one, but there has been an evolution of their sound too.
“Well, we are more old (laughs) and of course, our music has changed” told the singer to Publimetro.
Without jokes, Kaulitz explain us that “now our sound is more electronic than the music that we show with Humanoid” (2009). I believe that we definitely changed. In 5 years we live more things, personally and in relation with the things that you listen or you like”
And this change to electronic music is not a craving of the band for sound more contemporary but it’s something in relation directly with the ambient where the musicians of Tokio Hotel are living in the last time.
“I believe that it’s a natural transition because we had been in many parties while we produced the album and I believe that, in a personal level, we are more involve in this atmosphere. We have known and listened many DJs, we attended many electronic-festivals and things like that. I don’t know, I believe that this atmosphere inspire us” said the leader of the band.
“Kings of Suburbia” is the name of the new band production, and they were 5 years working on it. And this is because Tokio Hotel wanted to take a break after the tour of promotion of “Humanoid”, by the way, this was more longer than they were expected.
About this, “the true is that we hadn’t plans about freeze the band or something like that. We decided to relax us. Basically to find a new balance between our lives, in our music life and in a personal way”
“Also we wanted to have a time to be creative, without to have more pressure with the theme of the release and something like that” told us Bill Kaulitz. “Between us, we decide to take a free time and to say to our music company that we will call to them when we had something… and well, the call was after 5 years” he said laughing.
The musicians said, “the idea that we had was to show our new material in live and create an atmosphere of night club for make a big party. Setlist includes songs of the new album, the album before and some arrangement to the other songs. We tried in Europe, and we believe that they will enjoy in Latin America too”
But the guys of Tokio Hotel aren’t only waiting to give the best of them, they want the best of their fans too.
“For to be honest, we wait more of them because the last time the people were crazy, passionate and noisy. It was incredible. We wait something similar or better, especially in Chile”
More far of the tour, Bill Kaulitz said that with his brother Tom they are going to release a book “It’s the first time that we make something like that, and it’s a new experience and funny. We are taking some time working in this and we expect that it’s gonna be ok” explains the singer, and ends in laughs “we are very busy guys”.
