TWENTY ONE PILOTS
From Columbus, Ohio and formed in 2009, the duo is made up of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun who are known for blending their eclectic mixture of piano, rap and techno backbeats, to create truly unique songs blending various music styles. No strangers to the road, the band has built a strong following and earned widespread applause for their electrifying live performances.
Their lyrics are often tongue-in-cheek and introspective and when asked what their purpose of playing music is, Twenty One Pilots said 'we want to make people think.' Twenty One Pilots have debuted their new single "Tear In My Heart" from their sophomore studio album, Blurryface, out May 19 and debuted at No.1 on Billboard Album Chart.
