Twenty One Pilots, the Grammy-award winning duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, are gearing up for the release of their massively anticipated new album Trench, which arrives worldwide this Friday, Oct. 5. Trench is available for pre-order now at all DSP’s with exclusive vinyl and pre-order bundles available at www.twentyonepilots.com. All pre-orders are joined by instant downloads of the album tracks My Blood, Levitate, Nico And The Niners and Jumpsuit, each of which is also available for individual streaming or download.
My Blood marked the first track released from Trench to stand apart from the three-part narrative, first established in the official music videos for Jumpsuit, the chart-topping first single, continued in the LP’s second release, Nico And The Niners, and ultimately concluded with Levitate, all directed by longtime collaborator Andrew Donoho and streaming now via Twenty One Pilots’ YouTube channel. All three films have amassed over 75 million cumulative views to date.
This month, Twenty One Pilots will celebrate the release of Trench with the first leg of The Bandito Tour, a massive headline world tour set to get underway Oct. 16 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The tour will traverse the U.S. through the fall followed by dates in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom. The U.S. leg of the epic trek is now virtually sold-out, with much of the international itinerary fast approaching that same status.

Blurryface, which followed Twenty One Pilots’ debut album, 2013’s RIAA platinum certified Vessel, made a stunning chart debut upon its initial release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at No. 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 2-time RIAA platinum certified Tear In My Heart and followed by the No. 1 sensations, Ride and the 7-time platinum certified, Grammy-award winning Stressed Out. The latter track, which reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100, spent three months at No. 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 over 1.4 billion views on YouTube alone.
Ride spent five consecutive weeks atop the charts at Modern Rock radio outlets nationwide – the band’s second No. 1 single at the format in 2016 – while also ascending to No. 5 on the overall Hot 100. Another global smash, Ride is certified 4-times platinum by the RIAA with additional platinum charts around the world. In addition, the track’s companion video has now garnered over 683 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 6-time RIAA platinum certified single – which received three Grammy-award nominations including Best Rock Performance – spent four consecutive weeks at No. 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 five Hot 100 singles in the chart’s 58-year history, following only the Beatles and Elvis Presley.
