TWENTY ONE PILOTS VESSEL LP
In its purest form, music acts as a conduit of self-expression that's free from the conventions of society, it's this spirit and fearlessness that lies at the core of twenty one pilots, a group whose musical vision is completely their own.
The Columbus, Ohio-based band started out like most acts, but instead of aimlessly touring they concentrated on their hometown base and before long they were selling out huge local venues. Over the past few years the duo of frontman Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun have built a hardcore and organic following that seems primed to reach a fever pitch with the release of their Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel.
For Vessel the band entered a real studio for the first time ever with Grammy nominated producer Greg Wells (Pharrell Williams, Weezer) to craft an album which merges elements of hip-hop, indie rock and punk in a way that's so seamless that you'll be rapping along one minute, and caught up in a lush orchestral line the next.
