So let' s start with informations about our band!

Twins Bill Kaulitz and Tom Kaulitz (born ten minutes before his brother) had been performing since the age of 9. After putting on a show in their hometown of Magdeburg in 2001, Bill and Tom met Gustav Schäfer and Georg Listing. Their similar taste in music led to the creation of the band 'Devilish'. In 2003, the group was approached by music producer Peter Hoffmann and were soon after signed with Universal Music Domestic Division in Hamburg. They were then known as 'Tokio Hotel' (Significance: 'Tokio' for the lively and engaging city of Tokyo and 'Hotel' for the band's constant touring around the country). Assisted by professionals, Bill co-wrote the majority of the songs on their album, Schrei (Scream).
The music video of their debut single "Durch den Monsun" (Through the Monsoon) has been playing on German television since July of 2005. The band quickly gained a multitude of fans after its release. The single appeared on the German music charts at #15 on August 20th and reached #1 on August 26th. It also climbed to #1 on the Austrian music charts. Second video was "Schrei". This video also climbed to #1 all over Europe.They released their album Schrei in September of 2005. Three singles from their next album, Zimmer 483, went into the top 5 in Germany and into the top of the charts in other European countries. The Zimmer 483 Tour went to 12 European countries. In 2008 there was the release of Scream, an English album comprised of songs from both the earlier Schrei and Zimmer 483 albums.
