Twenty One Pilots have made a stunning global impact with the release of their acclaimed new LP, TRENCH. The collection, which earned the GRAMMY® Award winning duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun their biggest sales week ever in the U.S., sold 175,000 units in its first week. An extraordinary achievement for the Columbus, OH band who moved 135,000 copies of TRENCH in pure album sales without the aid of a ticket / album bundle for their highly anticipated worldwide headline “Bandito Tour.”  TRENCH — with over 52 Million on-demand audio streams its first week — also marks the largest streaming week (debut or otherwise) in the U.S. for a rock album.  A true global phenomenon amassing 110 Million streams worldwide in its first week, TRENCH earned Twenty One Pilots Top 5 chart debuts around the globe including the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Scotland, and Sweden, with #1 debuts in Australia, New Zealand, and The Netherlands. TRENCH is available worldwide at all DSPs and www.twentyonepilots.com.

Tonight Twenty One Pilots will embark on their global headline “Bandito Tour,” which commences with a sold-out performance at Nashville, Tennessee’s Bridgestone Arena.  The nearly sold-out first leg will traverse the U.S. through the fall followed by dates in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom.  Due to overwhelming demand, a second leg of the “Bandito Tour” has been added and it will see the band returning to North America for dates in Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. this spring.  The new dates are set to kickoff May 1st at Monterrey, Mexico’s Arena Monterrey and will continue through a two night hometown stand at Columbus, Ohio’s Nationwide Arena on June 29th and 30th.  For complete details and ticket availability on Twenty One Pilots’ “Bandito Tour,” visit www.twentyonepilots.com/banditotour.

Twenty One Pilots’ new album TRENCH is highlighted by the #1 Alternative smash “Jumpsuit,” which became the decade’s fastest rising song to reach #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart, and also reached the top spot on Mediabase’s “Rock Airplay” chart. The band took to the stage last week to perform “Jumpsuit” at the 2018 American Music Awards, the official broadcast from which is streaming now on Fueled By Ramen’s YouTube Channel.TRENCH also features album standouts “Nico And The Niners,” “Levitate,” and “My Blood,” which is accompanied by a Tim Mattia directed music videos streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel and all other providers.

TRENCH follows the Twenty One Pilots’ global breakout BLURRYFACE, which made a stunning chart debut upon its initial release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #1. The album also achieved a milestone unrivaled in the digital era, becoming the first album in which every individual song on the album certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum by the RIAA.

BLURRYFACE spawned a series of hit singles, beginning with the 2x RIAA platinum certified “Tear In My Heart” and followed by the #1 sensations, “Ride” and the 7x platinum certified, GRAMMY® Award-winning “Stressed Out.” The latter track – which reached #2 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – spent three months at #1 at Modern Rock while also topping the charts at CHR/Top 40 and Hot AC. “Stressed Out” was a worldwide breakthrough for Twenty One Pilots, earning gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications in countries spanning Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The “Stressed Out” companion video was an equivalent success, now boasting over 1.4 billion views at YouTube alone.

Ride” spent five consecutive weeks atop the charts at Modern Rock radio outlets nationwide – the band’s second #1 single at the format in 2016 – while also ascending to #5 on the overall “Hot 100.” Another global smash, “Ride” is certified 4x platinum by the RIAA with additional platinum carts around the world. In addition, the track’s companion video – directed by Reel Bear Media – has now garnered over 683 million views via Twenty One Pilots’ hugely popular YouTube channel.

“Ride” was then followed by still another world-conquering hit single, “Heathens,” featured on Atlantic Records’ blockbuster SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM. The 6x RIAA platinum certified single – which received three GRAMMY® Award nominations including “Best Rock Performance” (Tyler Joseph, songwriter) – spent four consecutive weeks at #2 on the “Hot 100” while also topping Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” for a record-shattering 28 consecutive weeks and counting. The unprecedented one-two punch of “Ride” and “Heathens” made Billboard history, establishing Twenty One Pilots as only the third rock act with simultaneous top 5 “Hot 100” singles in the chart’s 58-year history, following only the Beatles and Elvis Presley.

Heathens” — which hit #1 on the iTunes chart in over 60 countries – also rose to #5 in the United Kingdom and the top 10 in over 15 countries, with platinum and multi-platinum certification in Australia, Canada, Italy, and New Zealand. In addition, the “Heathens” companion video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Rock Video” and has now earned more than 1 billion individual views via YouTube alone.

2017 saw the release of yet another BLURRYFACE hit in “Heavydirtysoul.” Like its predecessor, the RIAA platinum certified single’s companion video received the 2017 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Rock Video” with views now exceeding 84 million via YouTube.

Twenty One Pilots received a number of major awards and nominations over recent years, with “Stressed Out” earning them the 2017 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” alongside four additional nods. Other honors include seven total Billboard Music Awards including 2016’s “Top Rock Artist” and “Top Rock Album” (for BLURRYFACE) and 2017’s “Chart Achievement Award,” “Top Duo/Group,” “Top Radio Songs Artist,” “Top Rock Artist,” and “Top Rock Song” (for “Heathens”); multiple Alternative Press Music Awards including “Album of the Year Presented By Journeys” (for BLURRYFACE), “Artist of the Year Presented By Monster Energy,” and “Most Dedicated Fans”; 2016 American Music Awards for “Favorite Alternative Artist” and “Favorite Pop/Rock/Band/Duo/Group”; six iHeart Radio Music Awards (including “Alternative Rock Song of the Year” in both 2016 and 2017); 2016’s Kerrang!
