The bandĂ˘€™s headlining tour will see them perform in Vancouver on November 4 at The Venue. Accompanying twenty one pilots on the tour will be special guests Robert DeLong (10/17 Ă˘€“ 11/22), Smallpools (11/25 Ă˘€“ 12/5), and Atlantic recording artist Sirah (10/17 Ă˘€“ 12/5). Additional dates will be announced soon.
The Ă˘€śTrip For Concerts Ă˘€“ Autumn 2013Ă˘€ť tour continues twenty one pilotsĂ˘€™ nearly non-stop travels, a journey that presently sees the band lighting up European stages with headline showcases and performances at such famous festivals as EnglandĂ˘€™s Reading & Leeds, BelgiumĂ˘€™s Pukkelpop and The NetherlandsĂ˘€™ Lowlands 2013. From there, twenty one pilots will return home to join Fall Out Boy and fellow Fueled By Ramen recording group Panic! At The Disco on the hugely anticipated Ă˘€śFall Out Boy Save Rock And Roll Arena Tour 2013,Ă˘€ť set to get underway September 5th at Uncasville, ConnecticutĂ˘€™s Mohegan Sun Arena and then continue through the month, including a stop at TorontoĂ˘€™s Echo Beach on September 15.
Furthermore, twenty one pilots have unveiled new live footage of their complete performance from their April 26th headline show at the LC Pavilion in Columbus, OH. The video, which is only available for viewing on The Warner SoundĂ˘€™s official YouTube page until August 25th, captures twenty one pilotsĂ˘€™ unrivaled live show in front of a capacity hometown crowd.
twenty one pilots Ă˘€“ that is, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun Ă˘€“ have earned coast to coast applause for their stellar live shows. Ă˘€śThe first great set of Bonnaroo 2013,Ă˘€ť exclaimed USA Today, while SPIN recently named the band one of their Ă˘€ś40 Best Things We Saw At Outside Lands 2013,Ă˘€ť noting that the Ă˘€śacrobatic, emo-rap, screamo-synthpop, cabaret-core duoĂ˘€Â¦wiggle their way into your heart via intense genre hybridization (thereĂ˘€™s definitely something for everyone) and their unique charm.Ă˘€ť The Columbus, Ohio-based duo will continue spreading the joy with a number of upcoming US festival appearances, including their hometownĂ˘€™s Breakaway Music Festival on Saturday, September 14th and Las VegasĂ˘€™ Life Is Beautiful Festival on Saturday, October 26th. As if that werenĂ˘€™t enough, twenty one pilots have already booked their first tour of 2014, an Australian arena run supporting their Fueled By Ramen labelmates, Paramore.
Ă˘€śHolding On To You,Ă˘€ť the first single from twenty one pilotsĂ˘€™ breakthrough label debut, Ă˘€śVESSEL,Ă˘€ť has proven an undeniable phenomenon, with its companion video earning twenty one pilots Ă˘€“ and director Jordan Bahat (Panic! At The Disco, fun.) Ă˘€“ an MTV Video Music Award nomination as Ă˘€śArtists To Watch.Ă˘€ť The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from BrooklynĂ˘€™s Barclays Center on Sunday, August 25th at 9 pm ET (check local listings). Ă˘€śHolding On To YouĂ˘€ť as drawn nearly 4 million views on twenty one pilotsĂ˘€™ official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/twentyonepilots.
The band made their national TV debut on TBSĂ˘€™ Conan, performing their latest single Ă˘€śHouse of Gold.Ă˘€ť Watch here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW12O-801Os.
twenty one pilots is without question among the yearĂ˘€™s most celebrated new bands, having been named as an MTV 2013 Ă˘€śArtist To WatchĂ˘€ť as well as one of Alternative PressĂ˘€™ Ă˘€ś2013 Bands You Need To KnowĂ˘€ť and a Billboard Ă˘€śBubbling UnderĂ˘€ť act. Ă˘€śVESSELĂ˘€ť sees the band expanding upon the distinctive fusion of piano-driven indie-rocktronica, ably supported in the studio with superstar producer Greg Wells (Weezer, Aerosmith, Adele, Katy Perry) behind the board.
More recently, Alternative Press Editor-In-Chief Jason Pettigrew named Ă˘€śVESSELĂ˘€ť as his mid-year pick for 2013Ă˘€™s Ă˘€śBest Album,Ă˘€ť writing Ă˘€ś(Joseph and Dun) have created an album that takes all the empty psychic calories of pop music and replaces them with an existential worldview teeming with self-doubt, neuroses, paranoia and the great hope that at the end of the day, we're all gonna be alright, somehow. Long may they feel.Ă˘€ť
Released in January 2013, Ă˘€śVESSELĂ˘€ť follows last yearĂ˘€™s Fueled By Ramen debut EP, Ă˘€śthree songs,Ă˘€ť which featured an exclusive new track alongside revisited versions of songs from 2011Ă˘€™s self-released, Ă˘€śREGIONAL AT BEST.Ă˘€ť
Known for their irrepressible on-stage energy, twenty one pilots has also built an avid international national following with their joyous live performances. In addition to innumerable headline shows and tours (including dates in such far-flung locales as Japan and the Republic of Korea), the band has shared stages with such like-minded artists as Paramore, Grouplove and Neon Trees.
