Synopsis

Album Description
It's been a long year for the army of Tokio Hotel followers. But come October, the visually captivating German-born international rock idols plan to pay back their fans' dedication--with interest. Humanoid is the highly anticipated follow-up to the platinum-selling, MTV VMA-winning group's 2008 US debut, Scream. "We took our time with this album until we had the perfect feeling about the songs and the entire production," singer Bill Kaulitz said. "We're totally in love with Humanoid and hope it will make up for the fans' long wait!" The first single, "Automatic," clocks in at just over three minutes but feels like an epic, thanks to the growling, layered guitar work of Tom Kaulitz, 19, and his twin brother Bill's anthemic, heartfelt yowl. In the opening verse, he sings, "You're automatic and your heart's like an engine/I die with every beat." The contagious words and melodies are only highlighted by the honed, mechanical precision of 22-year-old bassist Georg Listing and 20-year old drummer Gustav Schafer. It's one of their best ever slices of driving desperation destined to become fans' favorite scream-along. The biggest act to come out of Germany in 20 years, Tokio Hotel has gone 10x platinum, scored four #1 singles, sold out arenas and stadiums across Europe and played to 500,000 people at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in 2008. Along the way, they picked up MTV's Best New Artist VMA and a nomination for Best Pop Video for "Ready, Set, Go!" among other accolades. Already an established international sensation, the musicians hunkered down for months with longtime producer David Jost with the goal of releasing 13 science fiction-inspired, timeless tracks to the entire world all at once. The new record secures a place for Tokio Hotel as one of rock's most enduring groups.

"The first song that I ever heard from Tokio Hotel was Monsoon and I loved it. I purchased this album hoping that it would be just as good and it surpassed my expectations by a mile. This is some of the most unique music I have ever heard and the best vocals without a doubt. I can't wait for the next album."

"I only recently discovered TH on the European Music Awards (in USA)doing World Behind my Wall and they blew me away- I was instantly smitten and amazed! OMG the singer! the lyrics and awesome music behind it- just such a great production I had to know more about this band! I went out very next day and got Humanoid- havnt stopped playing it- awesome album all the way thru- they may be young but these guys can really craft a great song and play/ sing so well- I also got their album Scream from Amazon. I don't know how i went all these years not knowing who TH was and from this album on I am a HUGE fan- a little late to the party but better late than never!!
Long Live Tokio Hotel!"
Love it
