Twenty One Pilots became a global phenomenon with the release of ‘Blurryface’ in 2015. Having previously released three albums, their success wasn’t overnight, that is until it was! Their follow up ‘Trench’ in 2018 solidified the bands position and showed they were no flash in the pan.
Now in 2021 they return with ‘Scaled And Icy’ at a time when the world is starting to emerge from the hibernation of lockdown. When people will be hopeful but wary, the album feels like it has come along at the ideal time.

The album itself sees Twenty One Pilots in similar mood as they sound hopeful for the future but also a little wary. The sound that the duo has perfected feels pitched at just the right level of upbeatness for the world right now.
The unique sound that shot the band to fame, has been imitated by many since, but on ‘Scaled And Icy’, Twenty One Pilots show why they are the original and best. The likes of ‘Shy Away’ are up there with the best music the band has produced.
Whilst we are of course hopeful that we will safely be able to return to live music this summer, it’s not yet guaranteed. One festival that has chosen to move to 2022 is Bearded Theory.
In doing so they have revealed that the event will be headlined by Placebo, Patti Smith and The Flaming Lips. The event promises to be one not to miss and you can grab your tickets here.
