Chart-topping twosome Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are Twenty One Pilots. The Ohio-bred altpop rockers formed as a 3-piece in 2009 while still in high school, originally featuring Joseph, Nick Thomas, and Chris Salih. Upon the departure of Thomas and Salih, drummer Josh Dun was recruited to fill the slot, and the band continued as a duo.
In 2013 they signed with longtime punk label Fueled By Ramen Records and released Vessel. The album sold over a million records in the U.S. garnering Platinum status.
Mainstream success followed in 2015 when the band released their #1 selling Blurryface. Topping the Billboard 200, the double album featured the Grammy-winning single "Stressed Out" (#2 on the Billboard 100) and other monster hit "Ride". They also received a Grammy-nomination for "Heathens", their contribution to the Suicide Squad soundtrack.
Trench was released on October 5th, selling over 135,000 records in the U.S. alone, and grabbing the #2 spot on the Billboard 200. The album features the singles "Jumpsuit and "Nico and the Niners".
