Toyz Release Party Video Mix

Interview with Romeo from "All Stars" Russian Magazine

Interview Romeo for “All Stars” Russian magazine !
The keyboarder of Cinema Bizarre Rom3o was born in German town Hahenburg on the 4th of August in 1988. He was fond of music since his childhood. Played in different groups. In autumn last year, after Luminor’s leaving, he began to play in Cinema Bizarre and gave a concert in Russia. And then he became the constant member of the group.

What do you remember most of all from the tour in Russia, except the transit from Krasnodar to Moscow?
- (Laughing). Yeah, the trip was great: 25 hours in the train. But if seriously, I remember a very good food.

What was your first reaction, when you learnt about the tour with Lady GaGa in America?
- I didn’t believe in it. Sometimes now it seems to me that all this was just a dream.

What was your brightest impression from America?
- I won’t answer this question, because it’s very private…

You are not a newcomer in music. Where did you happen to play before Cinema Bizarre?
- I sang and played in groups, which worked in different music styles, such as: Ska- Punk, Cover-Rock, Tyrone Jackson in the Musical Fame (played in Germany, Ireland, France), Emo-Progressive, Emocore, Screamo, Progressive. Then there was another project, which I left for Cinema Bizarre. Now I am the happy rocker with the keyboard in this awesome band.

Did the work with Cinema Bizarre change something in your life or may be in you yourself?
- Too many. I can’t describe it in several words, but I am happy to be in this group.

What does it mean to you to be a part of Cinema Bizarre?
- Spend 24 hours a day with the best friends!

You and Yu are old friends…
-Yes, and we always have something to remember.

The friends for you is….?
- Without friends I am nothing, they are always in my heart. There is a very good expression: true friends are more valuable than diamond.

What are your most favorite songs from another groups?
- “Wait For Tomorrow” by Blessthefall and “The Crimson” by another American group Atreyu

What is your favorite music direction ?
- Screamo.

What do you think about fans, who come from different countries only to see your concerts?
- It’s amazing! I love such people for that what they do.

What kind of people you don’t like at all?
- Assholes!

Without what can’t you imagine your life?
- Without music, of course!

Would you like for one day to get an opportunity to read thoughts of other people?
- It’s not so interesting what they have in their heads, much more interesting that, what they have in their hearts!

Can you describe yourself in several words?
- I’m great organizer, open, true friend. I think, I am not silly and very creative. Also, I can’t bear injustice at all.

The last question: can you say something or wish to your Russian fans and readers of “All Stars” magazine?
- You showed me that you love me and still keep on doing it. I am happy and want to say: thank you very much! See you soon and I hope, that you will show me some other sights of Russia, about which I don’t know yet!

New blog from Strify!

TOYZ 2009.04 - Music remains.
„Willkomen, Bienvenue, Welcome –

Cinema, Cinema, Cinema!“

It’s bloogin’ time again and so much stuff is goin on.

We are workin’ on the idea for our new music video „I CAME 2 PARTY“, it’ll be shot in June. It’ll be some kind of video remake based on an idea of a music video that’s a classic. I’m not going to tell you too much. What do you think should a Cinema Bizarre party look like?

A week ago we’ve been in Italy and had a wonderful performance of „DEEPER & DEEPER“ at the Italian MTV TRL Awards. Because the album release was postponed again, we wanted to make you a little present and this track is downloadable for free at!

And the journey continues: On the weekend we’ll have the „TOYZ“ pre-release-party in Hamburg where we will appear as DJs and even play a few new tracks from the album for you. Hope I’ll see you there!

Next week we’ll be in Paris and have a little special event for you - an intimate accoustic evening – and the we’ll head to Moscow and Kiev for some concerts.

But a few things happened these days that weren’t so nice.

There was some buzz about stuff that leaked on the internet that upset some of you.

Also I read some reviews about the album that were kind of... I don’t know how I should say it... they were kind of funny. They were writing about all our make up, about how much hairspray we use, about the „wrong“ way of writing „TOYZ“ with a Z and so on.

That’s fine for me, but I really don’t understand the point of writing a review about an album without writing about the music.

Yes, Cinema Bizarre is not only meant to be heard but also to be seen.

We are making video, photos, are creating images... but all this comes along with the music.

There has always been a lot of controversy in my life. I guess it’s the same with the band.

But I just don’t want you to lose focus on the most important thing.

You can have as much posters as you want in your room, you can have zero posters.

You can dress the way you want, you can write whatever you want about us.

As long as you care about one thing: the music.

I don’t want you to forget that, it seems that happened to the person who has written that review (or copied it from another writer).

So many things come and go. Music remains, Art remains.

Stay Bizarre.

YOUR CREW CB and Cinema Bizarre

Your questions to Cinema Bizarre:

What is the idea to kiss on stage created?

Strify: Sometimes a flat packs simply the passion and you want to adrenaline on the stage with someone sharing

Yu: I had the feeling Kiro could use a little affection :-)

Kiro: things just happen. Moreover kiss me extremely happy; D

Where does the name Cinema Bizarre?

Strify: The word "bizarre" was crucial. Many people look at us and wonder why we are so curious. Most think it is negative. For us, we are normal people on this planet. The word "bizarre" so we want to give a positive meaning. On the Internet, we are on a movie from the 70s pushed the "Cinema Bizarre" was. The words were switched, and our baby had the perfect name. Cinema Bizarre is not only to listen but also to look alike - such as films.

Shin: Cinema represents our interest in films and visual effects. Bizarre us because other people often feel strange.

Yu: In the cinema, the cinema in our heads, and the bizarre world in which we move every day.

Kiro: We are 5 very different characters together and the people we want to offer great cinema! One must 'Bizarre' is also not seen as a negative word, we see it as a positive word.

How are you to your artist name came and what they mean?

Strify: Yu gave me my name. He has me by a character named "Cloud Strife" from "Final Fantasy" feel and reminds me of that time "Strify referred.

Shin: My name comes from friends who thought I had a small similarity with Shinya (Japanese plays in a band).

Yu: My name has had various forms of development. One was one of my favorite mangaka Yukiru Sugisaki, there was also some manga / anime characters with the name of Yuki, which is always best to me have passed. From Yuki Yukiru or later simply Yu reasons of style.

Kiro: My name comes from Strify's plush monkeys, the Siro is, and this was then 'Kiro' converted!

How did Luminor exit? Are there any contact between Luminor and the band?

Strify: Luminor was always a loner and has needed more space than he himself thought. That is to beat his mind and he's become ill. To return to find his way, he decided to leave the band.

Kiro: Luminor was very bad! We hope it goes better soon! Yes, we have now and Konakt!

Shin: For health reasons he had left the band! Now and then we still have contact with him.

Yu: It was with itself apparently not quite aware, I hope he's right!

How is Romeo after Luminor Cinema Bizarre exit to come?

Yu: Romeo was from the beginning always somehow in the process because it is a good friend of mine is. He could play our songs and has already helped so many times at concerts. He is the best choice!

Kiro: Romeo We knew a long time, he is a very good friend of Yu been and that is why we have to know him! If there were problems, he has helped us and now we are glad that he is in the band!

Is it true that Luminor to new musical works projects?

Strify: I do not know, but if so, I wish him good luck.

Kiro: I am not infomiert! I wish him all the cases to the best of luck on his other ways!

Are there moments where Cinema Bizarre fear their fans? What are these situations?

Strify: I never was afraid. Not before a person. However, if one sits in a car and is surrounded by people, all to a ranwollen, it may already be a little intimidating.

Yu: Sowas there are always. For example, if we are not using a bus once more through the crowd, because fans are everywhere. That is one really cool, but one wonders also what probably would happen if all the while on the bus would come.

Kiro: Sometimes it's just so strange to be angehimmelt and sometimes it is not easy because the people do not really know! But I would not be 'afraid' means!

In what situations are you so annoyed?

Strify: If we are only an hour break to have lunch between interviews and me in a total IT hotel my salad, even the totally overpriced, because the hotel is so announced, is not placed and then the hour has passed when finally comes the salad - THEN you can say that I'm slightly annoyed.

Shin: If I do not have time to build up my drums.

Yu: If before a concert soundcheck too brief, the settings and simply do not hinhauen something ... If you just before a concert in trouble, it always exists.

Kiro: Kommt drauf whole, if so, forgive me in my room or am simply just own!

Their dispute, even if her on tour are underway and what?

Strify: When so much is each other, you sometimes want to just be alone. But once all are gone, they are also missing again.

Shin: Big controversy, there was never before! We are like a family on tour.

Yu: Of course, for example, that the boys often pick their things could be.

Kiro: Not really dispute. We are a small family, and of course there are sometimes one or the other conflict, but now is not significant!

Who stylt lipstick and the guys on the stage or make it yourself?

Strify: For each concert, we have until now even geschminkt.

Romeo: Especially on tour, we usually own the makeup on.

Shin: I always look like this! ;-)

Yu: We styling and make up ourselves, Kiro makes me but mostly my hair on the back to cope because I unfortunately do not have eyes in the neck.

Kiro: We are so in the morning! D No, of course, we make everything themselves, except for special events such as Video shoot or photo shoots. Here we have visagists spot!
