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.
