GRAMMY® Award winning duo Twenty One Pilots are back! The musical project of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, the duo have announced their sixth studio album, Scaled and Icy, set to drop next month. The announcement comes alongside the release of the records lead single, Shy Away, arriving with an official visual, directed by Miles Cable & AJ Favicchio.
Written and largely produced by Joseph throughout the last year, Scaled And Icy is the product of long-distance virtual sessions, with Dun on engineering duties. Adapting to their new way of creating, the duo found themselves taking on a new approach to their songwriting, allowing for more imaginative compositions and lyricism. Their new way of making resulted in eleven introspective tracks that focuses on "the possibilities worth remembering”.
If all that wasn't enough, the duo will be hosting an exclusive virtual concert, Twenty One Pilots - Livestream Experience, sponsored by Chipotle and Hot Topic. Taking place on May 22nd at 10:00am AEST, Joseph and Dun will play through a collection of songs from their entire catalogue, including their forthcoming record. Tickets for the global streaming event are on sale today at live.twentyonepilots.com, with the band has also having launched a special pre-show virtual experience for fans to immerse themselves in as they move toward the official live date and performance.
