Ohio alt pop duo twenty one pilots have just kicked off a string of Australian east coast dates as part of their quiet is viølent world tour, and graciously they’ve agreed to stop by Music Feeds Studio for a session of Music Feeds LIVE this Monday.
Having supported pop-punk act Paramore on their last Australian tour, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of twenty one pilots have just released a quiet is viølent Australian Tour Edition EP in time for their east coast shows and are said to be already working on the follow-up to their debut full length Vessel, slated for release in late 2014.
The duo have built a loyal following, capturing audiences with their genre-bending abilities. Their debut saw the band work with Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells (Weezer, Aerosmith) to craft an album which merges elements of hip-hop, indie rock and punk.
“We’re not trying to consciously do something different but we’ve just never emulated any other bands,” Joseph explains. “We’ve never fit into any particular scene so we figured we would just make our own.”
For your chance to see the duo in full balaclava-wearing “schizoid pop” action, just tune in right here after 2:30pm this Monday, 8th August when twenty one pilots take over Music Feeds Studio.
