Eskimo Callboy Videos
They are German and they play rap metal!
Eskimo Callboy are rowdy, raucous, irreverent German rockers. They want to meet Miley Cyrus and do a song with her because they love her. And FIFA.
Get to know them! Crystals is out now.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
We started the band in 2010 and were influenced by bands like Attack Attack!, I Set My Friends on Fire, Asking Alexandria and something else. We wanna do something different and started with stupid lyrics and crazy costumes. We love party and drinking, Burgers, pizza, ice cream, bouncing castles and drinking…and party. We would love to make a song with Miley Cyrus 'cause we're her biggest fans in Germany. We are addicted to FIFA and Mario Kart 64. And it's our biggest dream to play naked at The Tonight Show. That's it.
Leaders of the world! HELL YEAH… or working at Starbucks.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Drinking… just drinking.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Alright! So there is a story behind 'Crystals' that is really untypical for Eskimo Callboy in general… serious lyrics. Nobody knows the real story about 'Crystals.' It's a song about a drug-addicted person who fell in love with the drug itself. We compared it to some kind of a bad relationship, where the worst part slowly destroys the good person even if this person loves the bad part. The person who is addicted is focused on the good sides of the drugs; the good emotions, the feelings but it's like a trap. At the changing point, you lose the control and you're not able to see clear or to quit even if you know that one day it could be the end. So in general, 'Crystals' is a story about a person's life who lost the fight against the drug.
Finish this sentence: Eskimo Callboy is the artist that…
... was formerly known as Tokio Hotel. [lol- Ed.]
And that's that!
