TWENTY-ONE-PILOTS

Now let’s take a break from tallying up our favorite albums of the past year and take a look at an album from next year.

The Columbus band Twenty One Pilots (stylized as twenty | one | pilots) has been on tour all summer with the Neon Trees, and soon they’ll be ready to release their debut album. Titled Vessel, the record will be out on Jan. 8 of next year on Fueled By Ramen, but you can stream the whole thing exclusively here.

The duo — Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun – have been gaining kudos for singles like “Holding on to You” and “Guns for Hands,” which mix zippy keyboards, melodic guitars, and rock-meets-rap vocal stylings. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Greg Wells, who’s worked with everyone from Adele to Katy Perry.
