twentyonepilots scaledandicyThe GRAMMY® Award winning duo TWENTY ONE PILOTS have announced their new album ‘Scaled And Icy’, due out May 21 via Fueled By Ramen / Warner Music. The band has already released the first single from the upcoming album, ‘Shy Away’, which is now available on all streaming platforms. The official music video for the song, directed by Miles & AJ, also premieres today. ‘Scaled And Icy’, TWENTY ONE PILOTS’ first studio album in three years and the follow-up to their US platinum album ‘Trench’, is now available for pre-order in various formats via http://wmg.click/TwentyOnePilots_ScaledAndIcy. From April 9th, it will also be possible to pre-order a Special Edition Box Set.

In addition to announcing the release date of their new album, TWENTY ONE PILOTS announced their first ever global streaming event, “Twenty One Pilots - Livestream Experience”, which will air worldwide on Friday May 21st. “Twenty One Pilots - Livestream Experience” already promises to be an unforgettable performance by the duo, with a setlist peppered with hits from all of their albums. At the same time, the performance will also mark the live debut of the new material from ‘Scaled And Icy’. Tickets for the unique, global streaming event are available at live.twentyonepilots.com. There the band is waiting for a special virtual experience even before the actual performance, in which the fans can immerse themselves in order to get themselves in the right mood for the official live event. While the livestream is sponsored by Chipotle and Hot Topic, the interactive and immersive experiences are designed and produced by lili STUDIOS and are supported by the livestream platform Maestro.

In the seclusion of his home studio, the album was largely written and produced by Joseph over the past year. At the same time, Dun was playing the drums on the album from across the US. ‘Scaled And Icy’ is thus a product of virtual sessions that took place over great distances and accompanies the duo in processing their overturned routines that went hand in hand with the prevailing emotions of 2020 - fear, loneliness, boredom and doubt. The duo had to do without their normal studio sessions, but reached a new level of self-reflection and now surprises with an even more imaginative and courageous approach to their songwriting. The result are songs that push forward through setbacks and focus on the available possibilities instead of looking back.

In 2020, TWENTY ONE PILOTS surprised fans with the independent album singles ‘Level of Concern’ and ‘Christmas Saves The Year’. ‘Level of Concern’ was heard on US alternative radio for 12 weeks and reached the Top 25 on the US Billboard “Hot 100” charts, while at the same time earning US gold and winning the band at last year’s American Music Awards where she took home the Favourite Artist - Alternative Rock award. ‘Christmas Saves The Year’ was released in late 2020 and debuted on the Billboard “Alternative Airplay” charts. This made it the first Christmas song to make it onto this list since 2012.

In addition, at the end of 2020, TWENTY ONE PILOTS received one final accolade by breaking the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ for the longest music video with their legendary regenerative visual for ‘Level of Concern’. The very first “Never-Ending Music Video” was conceived by the band in collaboration with interactive director Jason Nickel and award-winning storyteller / director Jason Zada, and incorporated real-time, live-on YouTube fan-generated content from over 162,000 user posts. Technically supported by Imposium, a new music video with brand new content was created by fans every three minutes and forty seconds and streamed live on YouTube. The previous record holder Pharrell and his 24-hour video for ‘Happy’ was boosted by “Never-Ending Music Video” from TWENTY ONE PILOTS to ‘Level of Concern’ exceeded with a total running time of 4,264 hours, 10 minutes and 25 seconds on 177 days in a row.

TWENTY ONE PILOTS’ 2018 album ‘Trench’ ushered in a new era for the Ohio duo. The album went platinum in the US and received critical acclaim. Billboard stated, “Trench indulges in the genre breaking and the intricate conceptualism that make TWENTY ONE PILOTS who they are”. With more than two billion streams worldwide, ‘Trench’ is a true global phenomenon whose special highlights are the US gold and platinum alternative hits ‘The Hype’, ‘Chlorine’ and ‘Jumpsuit’. In the past decade, no song has hit as fast as ‘Jumpsuit’ at # 1 on the Billboard “Alternative Songs” airplay chart. The song also earned the duo their fourth GRAMMY® nomination (Best Rock Song). Other highlights of the acclaimed concept album include ‘Nico And The Niners’ and the single ‘My Blood’.

In 2019, TWENTY ONE PILOTS announced that their 2013 album Vessel had reached a gold and platinum milestone in the USA: every single track on the album had received a gold, platinum or multi-platinum award in the USA. In 2018, the 2015 LP ‘Blurryface’ had already accomplished this feat - as the first album ever in the digital era. This makes the duo the first band / artist who can show this extraordinary success with two albums.
