Twenty One Pilots Release Two New Songs, Music Video, and announce fifth album, ‘Trench’ and tour

On July 6th 2017 Twenty One Pilots went completely silent. No more shows, no social media presence, and no presence from Tyler Joseph period. This followed the epic Blurryface era which landed them multiple hit songs including ‘Ride’ and ‘Stressed Out’, a massive world tour, and in 2018 the album became the first album ever in which each track received at least a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.

They announced their silence through a series of cryptic lyric tweets that ended with an eye closing. Then, on July 6th 2018, exactly one year later they broke their silence by sending this GIF of an eye opening to the members of their fan club which said ‘ARE YOU STILL SLEEPING?’. The following two days they then released more in-depth videos of the eye opening:

Billboards then went up in major cities across the country and they also slightly changed their symbol and signature colors:

FINALLY. Today we have answers to all of it. Twenty One Pilots are back.

Both are here!

Along with the new songs, in a statement released by the label the band also announced A FREAKING TOUR!!! ARE YOU SEEING WHAT I’M SEEING?!


Here are the lyrics for ‘Jumpsuit!’

I can’t believe how much I hate,

Pressures of a new place roll my way,

Jumpsuit, Jumpsuit cover me,

Jumpsuit, Jumpsuit cover me.

I crumble underneath the weight,

Pressures of a new place roll my way,


Jumpsuit cover me.


Jumpsuit cover me.

Spirits in my room, friend or foe?

Felt it in my youth,

feel it when I’m old,


Jumpsuit cover me,

Dusting off my Jumpsuit.

I’ll be right there,

But you’ll have to grab my throat and lift me in the air,

If you need anyone,

I’ll stop my plans, But you’ll have to tie me down and then break both my hands, If you need anyone.

And for ‘Nico and Niners’

East is up,

I’m fearless when I hear this on the low,

East is up,

I’m careless when I wear my rebel clothes,

East is up,

When Bishops come together they will know that,

Dema don’t control us,

Dema don’t control,

East is up.

They want to make you forget,

They want to make you forget,

Save your razorblades now, not yet,

Save your razorblades now, not yet.

I’m heavy, my Jumpsuit is on steady,

I’m lighter when I’m lower,

I’m higher when I’m heavy,

I’m so high, my Jumpsuit takes me so high,

I’m flying from a fire, from Nico and the Niners.

What I say when I want to be enough,

What a beautiful day for making a break for it,

We’ll find a way to pay for it,

Maybe from all the money we made razorblade stores,

Rent a race horse and force a sponsor,

And start a concert, a complete diversion,

Start a mob and you can be quite certain,

We’ll win but not everyone will get out.
