Watch: Twenty One Pilots take fans behind the scenes for ‘Jumpsuit’

It’s been a few months since Twenty One Pilots surprised the Clique by releasing their first post-hiatus song and its accompanying music video, On Thursday (Sept. 6), the duo decided to treat fans to a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to create the music video for Trench‘s lead single, “Jumpsuit.”

The eight-minute clip begins with the music video’s director, Andrew Donoho (“Heathens” “Heavydirtysoul”), explaining how a two-week trip to Iceland and seeing the canyons (where the video was filmed) gave him the desire to film something at that location.

“Two years ago, I did a nice little 15-day trip around Iceland and I was always shocked at the craziness and the expanse of the canyons,” Donoho explains in the video.

“You’ll see it on camera, but in person it’s even wilder because you feel like you’re totally surrounded and enveloped. So I went hiking with some friends and I’ve wanted to film here since.”

As it turns out, after listening to Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun describe the world of Trench, the director knew that it would be the perfect fit to film the album’s music videos at the Icelandic canyons.

“When I kinda heard about the world Tyler and the team had created, I was super pumped because it described to the tee exactly what I had seen here, so it all worked out.”

The clip doesn’t just follow Donoho, it also follows Joseph, Dun, and the rest of the crew who participated in the creation of the “Jumpsuit” music video. Throughout the video, the viewer also watches as Dun gives a tour of different areas in the canyon, but it’s hard to know whether he’s being sarcastic or giving legitimate information. Watch the full clip above and make up your own mind.

“Jumpsuit” is the lead single from Twenty One Pilots’ forthcoming album. Trench is due out Oct. 5 through Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available here. Joining “Jumpsuit” on the upcoming record will be previously released tracks “Nico and the Niners,” “Levitate,” and “My Blood.”

Watch the Foo Fighters Rock a Tiny Venue for Record Store Day

It came as no surprise to anyone that this year’s honor of Record Store Day Ambassador was given to Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, because come on, that guy lives and breathes rock and roll.

In honor of the music holiday, Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters decided to go to a small record store in Niles, OH and give the residence of the town a one of a kind performance at their neighborhood record store, Record Connection.

Now, a month after the performance which took place on April 18, the band have released a short, barely four-minute long, behind-the-scenes look at what went on that day.

Footage from the video includes interviews with fans and Record Connection owner Jeff Burke. According to Burke, and his brother, their father wanted him to open an ice cream shop. Instead, he went ahead and opened a record store which has been in business in the same shopping center for 32 years!

Now, that’s something.

You also get to see how much equipment the Foo Fighters packed into that small space, that even Burke was surprised/impressed by it.

Check out the video below.

The Foo Fighters are currently across the pond finishing up their European tour dates. They’ll return home after their performance at Glastonbury at the end of June.
