Earlier in the month, Twenty One Pilots rush-released their brand new single Heathens, set to feature on the forthcoming Suicide Squad official soundtrack. Today, the band have gifted us with the official video for the track, which sees the the duo sharing the high-security slammer with our favourite anti-heroes.
Unlike Jared Leto’s gifts of dead rats and used condoms, the Heathens video clip is actually thoroughly enjoyable. Flexing his acting muscle, vocalist Tyler Joseph is shackled and led through the damp, dark and dreary prison cell, chucking throw ups to Deadshot, El Diablo, Killer Croc and the rest of da crew.
“All my friends are heathens,” the chorus reiterates, reminding us that these cold blooded motherfuckers are people too, you guys.
The track is up for grabs as a pre-order but won’t be released until Friday, 5th August when the movie’s official soundtrack hits shelves both physically and digitally. The visual counterpart will hit screens moments before on Thursday, 4th August.
While there’s still a few drinks between now and the band’s next run of Australian tour dates for March 2017, you won’t wanna dilly dally on getting your tickets.
