EDITORS’ NOTES

Blurryface is an apt title for a duo whose musical identity is tricky to make out. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have been scuffing the lines between rock, hip-hop and electro since 2011, and now they’ve added reggae, dubstep and folk-rock stomps to the mix. What gives the sonic zig-zagging focus is Joseph’s candour–whether he’s consumed by love (“Tear In My Heart”) or wrestling with which direction to take his songwriting (“Lane Boy”), listening to him unpick his troubles is consistently compelling.

TØPCŁIQUE,

Each of these songs are expertly crafted by two individuals WHO BELIEVE AND LOVE THE THINGS THEY DO. The things they do, they do best. They craft music that makes people think. Tyler and Josh realize their potential to affect lives. On “Vessel", Tyler let his mask fall, showing he's human. His message was to anyone listening, to anyone that's struggling. We were introduced to this album, “Blurryface", with the hype track “Fairly Local". This track reminded us of the bands familiarity with our past struggles addressed in their album “Vessel”. “Tear In My Heart” told us something new, it told us to be happy! Tyler has said in interviews "I don't want to be listened to, I want to be heard". Let us hear what is being said on “Blurryface". If you’r already a fan, you know something important is being said. If you’r new to Twenty One Pilots, take note… Something important is being said.

this is pure perfection

my ears have never been graced by something so beautiful

About twenty one pilots

Twenty One Pilots were formed in 2009 by high-school friends Tyler Joseph, Nick Thomas, and Chris Salih. The pop trio built an enormous regional following across Ohio and the Midwest, spurred on by constant energetic touring, shrewd use of interactive social media, and connecting with fans on a grassroots level. Twenty One Pilots self-released their eponymous debut album of rap-infused high-tech pop in December 2009 before Thomas and Salih left the band in 2011; Tyler Joseph carried on with new member Josh Dun. Later that year, second album Regional at Best surfaced, the first with the new duo lineup. The pair also gained popularity through publicly releasing a series of videos made by their friend Mark Eshelman. In 2012, they signed to Atlantic subsidiary Fueled by Ramen, releasing the Three Songs EP in the summer of that year and working with Adele producer Greg Wells on Vessel, their debut album for the label. Vessel saw release in January of 2013, and the band was scheduled to support it with an international tour deep into the year.

For the recording of their third album, Twenty One Pilots opted to work with various producers on an almost song-by-song basis. Working with Ricky Reed, Mike Crossey, Tim Anderson, and others, this process took them to studios throughout Los Angeles and London. The album, the Billboard 200-topping Blurryface, arrived in 2015. The album's "Stressed Out" single reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 2016, with "Ride" following at number six that summer. "Heathens," their contribution to the soundtrack for the DC Comics film Suicide Squad, not only helped notch another Billboard 200 chart-topper for the duo, but the single's rise to number four on the Hot 100 made Twenty One Pilots the first alternative band to have two concurrent Top Ten singles. At the end of the year, the duo collaborated with tourmates MUTEMATH for the TOPxMM EP, which featured reimaginings of "Heathens" and four Blurryface tracks. ~ Fred Thomas
