Twenty One Pilots announce ‘Trench’ with “Jumpsuit” and “Nico And The Niners”

Earlier this week, Twenty One Pilots sent out a cryptic email that showed nothing more than an updated version of the band’s logo and a new colorway for whatever was to come next. Like a pebble in the water, the ripple was huge. Fans and media outlets alike were rabidly tweeting that the hiatus was nigh — the bad boys of scatterbrained pop music were poised to make a return. It’s official — we’re living in a post-hiatus world, y’all.

Today, the band announced the follow-up to 2015’s wildly successful Blurryface will be a new album called Trench that will be released on October 5th. With this announcement came the surprise drop two incredible new songs, “Jumpsuit” and “Nico And The Niners.” The former feels post-apocalyptic; the crunchy, heavy bassline hits you in the bass of your spine and carries you into a powerfully cathartic scream that pushes Tyler Joseph’s vocals to their breaking point, whereas “Nico And The Niners” feels like the lovechild of “Ride” and “Heathens” while continuing to make reference to what one can only assume will be a recurring theme on Trench, the protection that comes from the jumpsuit.

The music video for “Jumpsuit” can be seen above and both songs are available to stream below.
