Twenty One Pilots On Fire
After multiple Top 5 charting singles, sold-out tour dates months out, the album pre-order being a fixture in the Top 10 and charting at #1 on the iTunes Album Chart, Twenty One Pilots, one of the most buzzed about bands of 2014, has released their highly-anticipated album, Blurryface, now available at music retailers worldwide via http://smarturl.it/blurryface.
Since announcing the album’s imminent release in March via the Twenty One Pilots Twitter account, their dedicated fan base created a social media frenzy, leading Twenty One Pilots to trend worldwide on Twitter and Tumblr. Fans have been clamoring to hear the new record, and singles teasing the album’s release have been giving listeners a taste of what Tyler Joseph (lead vocals, piano, and the band’s songwriter) and Josh Dun (drums) have in store.
Blurryface takes Twenty One Pilots’ explosive mix of hip-hop, indie rock and punk to the next level, with soaring pop melodies and eclectic sonic landscapes. The fan track, “Fairly Local,” reached No. 1 on iTunes’ Alternative Chart, and top 5 on Billboard’s Twitter Chart. The album’s lead single, “Tear In My Heart,” debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Top Rock Songs Chart and is currently in the Top 10 and climbing at Alternative Radio, while the following single, “Stressed Out,” debuted with over 1 million streams first week. So far, the companion videos for all three songs have already amassed more than 17 million views combined. Watch:
