twenty one pilots have had an incredible year. After breaking into the market with their debut major label release Vessel in 2013, the duo have gone from strength to strength – charting multiple times, debuting on late night television and playing festivals around the country. This video however, begins in June 2011, where Tyler and Josh start playing the song to a despondent 12-strong crowd at their first out-of-state show with the same energy and zeal that’s gotten them their reputation for being exuberant showmen even today. Their rise to fame continues with their debut album release, at a packed basement in their hometown a year-and-a-half later, and is further chronicled by an open-air show filled with 12,000 fans over two days late in 2014. So kids, if you think you might get big sometime in the future, start filming now.
The excitement is tangible.
