Twenty One Pilots’ last album Trench was one of biggest concept albums mainstream music had seen in quite some time.
It told the story of a mythological city with a ruling class of Bishops, like something out of The Hunger Games, that fans dissected word by word in Reddit forums.
They are now busy at work writing their follow up album and expect it to be firmly rooted in the same fantasy world.
Tyler tells NME they’re putting songs together on the road, adding: “There’s a character that hasn’t been talked about yet that plays a huge role and that’s probably where we’re going next.”
The band is on tour through much of the year, so it may be quite some time before they put the songs down.
But hopefully it will be out next year!
