Explain a typicla promotion week for us?
Well it's kind of normal, we do band practice from 17:00 til 23:00 everyday, with breaks. In between we speak about important issues or give interviews. And of course we practice with Thomas twice again before or after. And aorund all of that everyone does their won personal stuff ie. bank stuff, shopping, the website, merchandise, taxes etc. and in the evening we have a beer.
again feel free to add anything, but respect his privates sphere.
