Blurryface sets a new tone for Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots release new album Blurryface.

When the band Twenty One Pilots’ album, Vessel, came out in 2011, it was clear that they were going to be something different. Hits like “Car Radio” and “Holding On To You” showed only a glimpse of what the two man duo that is Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are capable of. In May of 2015, their new album, Blurryface, set a whole new tone for the band. With Vessel setting a light tone with a light, hopeful meaning, Blurryface set the tone for a dark, more serious tone with songs like “Doubt”, “Message Man” and “Fairly Local” which turned the band’s usually hopeful manner on its head.

Although, with the songs that shed the dark tone on Blurryface show strongly, there are songs that hold onto the light tone that they started out with in 2009. Songs such as “We don’t believe what’s on TV” and “The Judge” give the album a brighter side than what it originally presents, but still keeps the seriousness clear.

When it first came out, the band became a lot more popular with their hit “Tear in my heart,” which landed them in a spot in the top ten best songs for iTunes in the US within a week. Even now, months later, the single is in the top 100 and the album is still within the top thirty on iTunes. The album itself broke quite a few records, as well as being one of the world’s fastest selling albums. Shortly after the release of the album, they announced that they will be holding the Blurryface World Tour where they will be touring with the band Echosmith between the months of October 2015 and March 2016. Even though the tour hasn’t started yet, it has already sold out one third of the all of the tour dates.

This album has surely left a mark on the music industry due to its use of different styles and straying from what they had originally done in the past years. This album is definitely something to listen to or recommend to friends and family.
