It’s been a while since I seated (or laid) in front of my notebook to write a post for this blog. Probably I wasn’t enough inspired or it wasn’t the right moment but I hope to write more in the next months because I want this blog to be more than a common updates box. I’m so grateful to all of you who still check it and also leave likes and (sometimes) comments. You will still find all the updates and more – Tokio Hotel From A To Z is the last project I’m working on and you can check the first five posts on the menu above. BUT I’ll try my best to write more posts on my thoughts EXCLUSIVELY about Tokio Hotel music. I don’t care about drama, gossip and stuff. I do care only about Tokio Hotel projects in fact of music or whatever they are involved in.
So on Wednesday Bill shared a new post on his Instagram profile revealing he’s working on new Tokio Hotel record (in the picture there are also Tom and Georg).
The frontman also shared an IG story with some microphones before a session.
It’s not the first time the band closed in a recording studio this year. On July they had a listening session at the iconic Hansa Studios in Berlin. In the last four decades famous artists like David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Marillion and U2 – just to name a few – recorded some of their records at Hansa Studios. So it would be a great achievement for Tokio Hotel to be included in the list of the artists who recorded there and released probably some of the most memorable albums of music history.
Two months earlier, on May, Bill and Tom stopped in Düsseldorf, Germany, also to work on new material and the singer shared the moment on his Instagram profile.
The band, especially Bill, told more than once that they are always writing and composing for their future projects, even though Tom during their last tour joked about the fact fans have to wait five years for a new record.
So now my question is: should we expect a new record within the end of the year or we have to wait the first trimester of 2019 just like happened for Dream Machine? The band is always pretty inscrutable in fact of release dates BUT during Summer Camp a fan won all access tickets for their upcoming shows in 2019 so there’s something brewing.
And what about the sound? It’s gonna be a completely new chapter, exploring new sounds or it will keep Dream Machine sonorities but with different shades? Following Tokio Hotel for eleven years, I can say there’s always an evolution in what they do but with a glance on what they did back in the years because Tokio Hotel didn’t change, Tokio Hotel simply evolved and grown up as band, as musicians and as persons. So I’m really curious what will bring this new era: a concept album, a visual album. The discussion is opened.
UPDATE – September 14, 2018
Bill, Tom and Georg are currently working at Riverside Studio in Berlin.
