Twenty One Pilots Announce Australian Tour Dates

Ohio’s very own twenty one pilots have announced some 2014 east coast dates as part of their quiet is viølent World Tour, with the duo set to enliven audiences in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with their unique brand of modern alt pop this August.

twenty one pilots are Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun. They supported pop-punk act Paramore on their last Australian tour, with Music Feeds reviewer Jade Davis praising the band’s “whirlwind trip through their self-proclaimed ‘schizoid pop’, balaclavas, floor-tom battles and spoken word poetry”.

Joseph has thanked fans for their support and discussed the duo’s touring philosophy. “Every show we play our hearts out because where we come from you have to grab people’s attention and make sure that they never forget you,” he says. “To our fans we say we never got our big break, you created our big break. Thank you.”

After self-releasing two albums, twenty one pilots signed to Fueled By Ramen and released their studio debut, Vessel, in 2013. The band are currently in the studio working on the follow-up, which is slated for release in late 2014. An Australian Tour Edition EP will also be released on Friday, 1st August in time for the east coast shows.

Tickets go on sale at 9am, Friday, 13th June. An exclusive pre-sale for My Live Nation members will begin at 9am, Tuesday, 10th June. A Ticket Agent pre-sale will also take place beginning at 9am on Thursday, 12th June. Check out the full tour details below.
