Twenty One Pilots have shared two new tracks – “Jumpsuit” & “Nico And The Niners” – which are available today at all DSPs and streaming services. “Jumpsuit” is joined by an official music video, directed by longtime collaborator Andrew Donoho, streaming now on Twenty One Pilots’ YouTube channel. Both tracks will appear on the band’s anticipated new studio album. Trench – which follows the Grammy® Award-winning duo’s 2015 LP, Blurryface, which has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide – will arrive everywhere October 5 via Fueled By Ramen, with more details to be revealed in the coming months.
Blurryface – which followed Twenty One Pilots’ Fueled By Ramen debut album, 2013’s RIAA Platinum certified VESSEL – made a stunning chart debut upon its initial release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #1. The album also achieved a milestone unrivaled in the digital era, becoming the first album in which every individual song on the album certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum by the RIAA.
Blurryface spawned a series of hit singles, beginning with the 2x RIAA platinum certified “Tear In My Heart” and followed by the #1 sensations, “Ride” and the 7x platinum certified, Grammy® Award-winning “Stressed Out.” The latter track – which reached #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 – spent three months at #1 at Modern Rock while also topping the charts at CHR/Top 40 and Hot AC. “Stressed Out” was a worldwide breakthrough for Twenty One Pilots, earning gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications in countries spanning Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The “Stressed Out” companion video was an equivalent success, now boasting close to 1.4 billion views at YouTube alone.
“Ride” spent five consecutive weeks atop the charts at Modern Rock radio outlets nationwide – the band’s second #1 single at the format in 2016 – while also ascending to #5 on the overall “Hot 100.” Another global smash, “Ride” is certified 4x platinum by the RIAA with additional platinum carts around the world. In addition, the track’s companion video – directed by Reel Bear Media – has now garnered over 657 million views via Twenty One Pilots’ hugely popular YouTube channel.
“Ride” was then followed by still another world-conquering hit single, “Heathens,” featured on Atlantic Records’ blockbuster SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM. The 6x RIAA platinum certified single – which received three GRAMMY® Award nominations including “Best Rock Performance” (Tyler Joseph, songwriter) – spent four consecutive weeks at #2 on the “Hot 100” while also topping Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” for a record-shattering 28 consecutive weeks and counting. The unprecedented one-two punch of “Ride” and “Heathens” made Billboard history, establishing Twenty One Pilots as only the third rock act with simultaneous top 5 Hot 100 singles in the chart's 58-year history, following only the Beatles and Elvis Presley.
“Heathens” -- which hit #1 on the iTunes chart in over 60 countries – also rose to #5 in the United Kingdom and the top 10 in over 15 countries, with platinum and multi-platinum certification in Australia, Canada, Italy, and New Zealand. In addition, the “Heathens” companion video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Rock Video” and has now earned more than 1 billion individual views via YouTube alone.
2017 saw the release of yet another BLURRYFACE hit in “Heavydirtysoul.” Like its predecessor, the RIAA platinum certified single’s companion video received the 2017 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Rock Video” with views now exceeding 84 million via YouTube.
Twenty One Pilots received a number of major awards and nominations over recent years, with “Stressed Out” earning them the 2017 Grammy® Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance alongside four additional nods. Other honors include seven total Billboard Music Awards including 2016’s Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Album (for Blurryface) and 2017’s Chart Achievement Award, Top Duo/Group, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Rock Artist, and Top Rock Song (for “Heathens”); multiple Alternative Press Music Awards including Album of the Year Presented By Journeys (for Blurryface), Artist of the Year Presented By Monster Energy, and Most Dedicated Fans; 2016 American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock/Band/Duo/Group; six iHeart Radio Music Awards (including Alternative Rock Song of the Year in both 2016 and 2017); 2016’s Kerrang! Award for Best Fanbase, and two MTV Europe Music Awards.
