Watch: Twenty One Pilots conclude their ‘Trench’ trilogy with ‘Levitate’

A couple of weeks after treating fans to the second part of their Trench trilogy, Twenty One Pilots have returned with series’ final video. On Wednesday (Aug. 8), the Ohio-founded act premiered the music video for their latest single, “Levitate.” Taking to Twitter, the band posted a simple message to fans accompanied by the official link to the new video.

The two-and-a-half-minute clip picks up right after the “Nico and the Niners” video. Frontman Tyler Joseph is finally safe from the red-hooded bishop (Dema) thanks to the rescue efforts of his bandmate Josh Dun and his merry group of yellow and olive-green dressed saviors (the Banditos).

Dun and the Bandito crew take Joseph to their dystopia campground where the area is lined with cloth tents, a charred car, and a group of people decked out exactly like the rescue crew. While entering the campgrounds, the viewer watches as Joseph’s welcome consists of the Banditos taping bright yellow tape on his shirt, confirming that he is now a part of them.

Throughout the clip, the viewer also watches as other members of the Bandito crew begin to shave Joseph’s hair. For the musician, this act could be him getting rid of something that kept him connected to his former life as an unwilling member of the Dema.

While the rest of the video features Joseph and Dun performing the song as well as shots of a vulture randomly flying, the video takes an unexpected turn when a dark figure arrives and abducts Joseph right in front of a campfire. Watch the music video for “Levitate” above.

The music video’s release comes a few hours after “Levitate” and an alleged Trench tracklist leaked online. At the time of the leak, fans were quick to speculate that either Joseph or Dun was behind it. As per a fan-run Twitter account, it turns out that Jay-Z’s streaming site, Tidal, reportedly leaked the new song before its intended release. Though the music streaming site was quick to pull the song down, a highly anticipated new tune is not something you can hide from the Skeleton Clique.

“Levitate” will join “Nico and the Niners” and “Jumpsuit” on Twenty One Pilots’ forthcoming album. Trench is due out Oct. 5 through Fueled By Ramen. Trench is the follow-up to the group’s Grammy-winning record, 2015’s Blurryface.

In support of the new album’s fall time release, Twenty One Pilots previously announced plans to hit the road during the final months of 2018 and early months of 2019. The Bandito world tour will begin on Oct. 16 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and conclude five months later on March 17, 2019 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Watch: Twenty One Pilots continue the ‘Trench’ trilogy with ‘Nico and the Niners’

Just a few short weeks after confirming the impending release of their fifth studio album with a slew of other good news, Twenty One Pilots have returned with a brand new music video. On Thursday (July 26), the Ohio-founded act unveiled the music video for their second single, “Nico and the Niners.” Per the band, the new clip is the second part of their Trench trilogy which began with their lead single, “Jumpsuit.”

The four-and-a-half-minute clip begins some time after the “Jumpsuit” video concludes. Frontman Tyler Joseph is locked up in what looks to be some kind of creepy institution by the red-hooded figure from the first part of the trilogy. In his isolated room, the viewer watches as Joseph paces up and down as if coming up with some kind of plan. Mid-way through his pacing, he decides to pack up his bag and try to escape his captivity.

While Joseph goes about packing his bag, the footage changes to a congregation led by the same red-hooded figure that kidnapped the musician in the first clip. As the congregation gathering is happening above ground, the other group from the first video (the ones dressed in olive green and bright yellow) are seen making their way through a dark tunnel armed with torches.

While making his grand escape, Joseph runs into the group in the tunnel which is led by none other than his band mate, Josh Dun. In true Twenty One Pilots fashion, a drum kit appears and the duo begins to perform. Watch the music video for “Nico and the Niners” above.

“Nico and the Niners” will join “Jumpsuit” on Twenty One Pilots’ forthcoming album. Trench is due out Oct. 5 through Fueled By Ramen. Trench is the follow-up to the group’s Grammy-winning record, 2015’s Blurryface.

In support of the new album’s fall time release, Twenty One Pilots announced plans to hit the road during the final months of 2018 and the early months of 2019. The Bandito world tour will begin on Oct. 16 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and conclude five months later on March 17, 2019 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Earlier in the week, “Jumpsuit” made history as the fastest-rising alternative song, per Billboard. The honor was previously held by Green Day’s 2009, 21st Century Breakdown single “Know Your Enemy.” Both “Jumpsuit” and “Know Your Enemy” debuted at the number eight spot and reached the top spot in a two-week span.

Twenty One Pilots announce new album, massive world tour

“What is Twenty One Pilots up to?” may have been the main question on fans’ minds over the course of the last few days when the group started posting cryptic messages. It all started when the duo changed their logo’s color scheme. The Blurryface blue, red, and gray color scheme was gone and replaced by a yellow and black version. Then, random posters with the new logo began to appear in random locations. Finally, things came to a head when the group posted a short, cryptic video on social media with an eye opening and some audio playing in the background.

Well, now it looks like fans finally got what they have been patiently waiting for; an answer. On Wednesday (July 11), the Ohio-founded act confirmed the release of their fifth studio album. Titled Trench, the new record is due out Oct. 5 through Fueled By Ramen.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the duo released a pair of new songs; the album’s lead single “Jumpsuit” and a second track titled “Nico and the Niners.” While “Nico and the Niners” is currently available for streaming here, the five-minute music video for “Jumpsuit” can be seen above.

Trench is the follow-up to Twenty One Pilots’ Grammy-award winning album, 2015’s Blurryface.

As if a new album and two new songs wasn’t enough, the band also announced plans to hit the road later this year. In support of Trench, the two-piece will embark on a massive excursion which will find them touring and performing around the world during the final months of 2018 and the early months of 2019. Dubbed the Bandito tour, the trek will begin on Oct. 16 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and conclude five months later on March 17, 2019 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal.

Fans who would like to obtain early access to tickets are encouraged to register on the band’s website here. Those who qualify will hear back from the band on Monday, July 16. Tickets for those verified fans will go on sale beginning next Tuesday, July 17, at 10 a.m. local time. The complete Bandito tour itinerary can be seen below.
