Tokio Hotel pimp post

Okay, so the other day I posted a link to Tokio Hotel's new English language single that's being released in the UK and I had some good responses, but people wanted more info, so consider this the TH Pimp Post of Doom TM :).

Tokio Hotel are four young men from Germany:
Bill (17, vocals), Tom (17, lead guitar), Georg (20, bass) and Gustav (18, drums)


Bill and Tom are identical twins - yes really; look at the bone structure and the band have been together for seven years. Before they were Tokio Hotel they were Devilish and they used to play around where they lived.

A piccie from the Early Days
Weren't they cute :)


Then Bill went on Star Search (a German TV show) and didn't win, but it did get him noticed and some people saw the band and they were approached by producers. Since then Tokio Hotel have managed to first take over Germany, then France and then the rest of Europe.

The Progression of the Image Tokio Hotel




The Albums
They have two German language albums that have both gone multi-platinum.
First came Schrei, which was realeased in two versions:

Schrei which is the first recording
&
Schrei - so laut du kannst when Bill voice had deepened
Then came Zimmer 483 - a much rockier sound
Zimmer 483
Then in 2007 they released their first English language album with translations of songs from both their German language albums.
Scream



The version of this album released to the German market was called Room 483.

There will a new UK version of this album released in Aug 2007 as well.
