Universal Music presents: Tokio Hotel "Kings Of Suburbia"
The soundtrack for a moment at the top of your own universe, no matter how small or huge it may be.
With their debut album in 2005, Tokio Hotel rose to become the most successful German rock band of the last 20 years. Seven million copies of their releases have been sold worldwide, and with around 160 Gold and 63 Platinum awards in 68 countries and well over 100 national and international awards, Tokio Hotel is an international phenomenon. Never before had a German band won an American MTV Video Music Award - Tokio Hotel won as "Best New Artist", as well as the Japanese MTV Music Award for "Best Rock Video" and five European Music Awards. A career utterly without parallel.
Bill and Tom Kaulitz (25) moved to California overnight at the absolute height of their fame. Submerged in the anonymity of Los Angeles, their experiences there lent them new creativity and inspiration which they used to write and produce their fourth international studio album "Kings Of Suburbia".
With a total of eleven tracks (or fifteen on the deluxe version) "Kings Of Suburbia" demonstrates how the past flows into the present, making room for new influences and ideas, pointing the way with intense and powerful tunes to the future. An uncompromising, single-handed musical process, characterised from the song writing right down to the production by the close collaboration between twins Bill and Tom.
"Kings Of Suburbia" is released on 6 October and is available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes from 5 September.
