Last year Columbus, Ohio duo Twenty One Pilots signed to prestigious label Fueled By Ramen and have since had a whirlwind 12 months. They're now ready to hit the UK with their label debut album "Vessel" to be released later this year and following an incredible sold out show at the Barfly in March the band have announced a small UK run. They will be playing three dates in June, kicking off at O2 Academy 3 Birmingham on 1 June, playing Manchester Academy 3 on 5 June and The Garage in London on 6 June. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 12th April priced o8 (regional) and o10 (London) (subject to booking fee) from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk
Having already self-released two albums, the first in 2009 and second in 2011 the duo quickly attracted serious label attention following a sold out hometown show in Columbus - known for their irrepressible on-stage energy, twenty one pilots have built an avid international following with their crazy live performances.
"Vessel" sees twenty one pilots expanding upon the distinctive fusion of piano-driven indie-rocktronica, ably supported in the studio with superstar producer Greg Wells (Weezer, Adele, Aerosmith) behind the board. Songs like "Holding On To You" prompted Billboard to hail the guys "wind-up-toy of a single" as irresistible "saccharine punk rap".
twenty one pilots are: Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun.
