New Twenty One Pilots music may be on the horizon.
Precisely one year after the band announced its hiatus, announced with a GIF of a closing eye, fans were sent an e-mail with a similar GIF and the text: “ARE YOU STILL SLEEPING?”\
This, of course, would suggest the band is readying itself to release new music. Twenty One Pilots’ last album, Blurryface, was released in 2015, becoming the first album ever to have each of its tracks achieve gold status.
Some astute fans had noticed, on 29 June, that the band had posted an 18-second long clip to their since disabled DEMA website. Though heavily distorted, this would presumably be a hint at what’s to come.
The duo, comprised of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, also first heralded their hiatus with some carefully selected lyrics: “And now I sit in silence”.
