Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel talk about their new album King Of Suburbia on Maria Menounos' AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On. The twin brothers open up about their time off and their move to Los Angeles.

Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel sit down with AfterBuzz TV host, Jason Ikeler to talk about their return to the music industry. It’s been over five years since their last LP. Bill reveals that even though they were advised not to take time off, they followed their gut, “When we said we’re gonna take a break because we have no inspiration and we need to step away from it a little bit…they were like, ‘oh it’s career suicide you can’t do that now a-days’…we were just trying to not feel any pressure.” Tom chimes in saying, “we want to enjoy what we do, and we got to the point where we didn’t enjoy it as much anymore.”

During their time off they moved to Los Angeles. Bill opens up saying, “We came to LA to hide…for us it was ideal to come here…it worked out great because in the end it was just no fun for us in Europe anymore and we just couldn’t have like private life besides the career, we were just trying to find that.” Not only were they able to take time off, but they joke that, “we partied a lot..maybe too much.”

Tom and Bill also open up about the changes in the music industry since their last release, Tom says, “People are putting out records pretty much every day, nonstop …for us it doesn’t feel natural because at the same time we are writing a lot on our own and producing on our own, so it takes us a little longer than other artists.” Their return to the music industry was worth the wait their new album Kings of Suburbia debuted at #1 in 29 countries. Their lead single “Love Who Loves You Back” is climbing the chart at radio and Bill opened up about their edgy video, saying that it’s based on the movie Perfume. “I just wanted to make that with music, so I thought y’know it’s the right song to do it…it was a lot of fun…That’s what the song’s about, love has no boundaries or age or gender.” Although Tom jokes that, “It’s still weird for me to watch the video and watch my little brother making out with all of the people”
