FIRST ARTIST IN THE DIGITAL ERA WITH EVERY SONG ACROSS TWO ALBUMS CERTIFIED GOLD, PLATINUM OR MULTI-PLATINUM
NEW U.S. HEADLINE “THE BANDITØ TOUR” DATES START OCTOBER 9TH IN TAMPA, FL
VESSEL, the 2013 LP from Twenty One Pilots, has achieved a Gold & Platinum milestone with every individual track from the album receiving Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification from the RIAA. Twenty One Pilots’ 2015 LP BLURRYFACE was the first album of the digital era to achieve this feat back in 2018, making the duo from Columbus, OH the first artist / group with two albums to reach this landmark achievement. VESSEL and BLURRYFACE share a combined 8 Billion on-demand audio streams worldwide.
The milestone was achieved with the recent Gold certification of “Truce.” Now all 12 songs from VESSEL have earned certification under the RIAA’s Gold & Platinum Program. No other artist or group has tallied two albums with their individual songs reaching this collective milestone.
The VESSEL song awards are: “Car Radio” 2X Platinum, “Holding on to You” Platinum, “House of Gold” Platinum, “Migraine” Platinum, “Ode To Sleep” Gold, “Guns for Hands” Gold, “Fake You Out” Gold, “Semi-Automatic” Gold, “Trees” Gold, “Screen” Gold, “The Run and Go” Gold, “Truce” Gold.
Twenty One Pilots recently announced a new U.S. leg of their global headline “The Banditø Tour.” The new tour dates, which follow this summer’s sold-out arena run, are set to kickoff October 9th at Tampa, FL’s Amalie Arena and will continue through a performance at Tulsa, OK’s BOK Center on November 9th. Tickets for the new U.S. dates will be released to the public at 10:00AM local time on Friday, July 19th.

Furthermore, Twenty One Pilots recently shared “Cut My Lip (40.6782°N, 73.9442° W),” the second stripped back performance from the band’s new “Løcatiøn Sessiøns.” Recorded by Tyler Joseph, “Cut My Lip (40.6782°N, 73.9442° W)” follows the series’ debut session “Chlorine (19.4326° N, 99.1332° W),” and is accompanied by an official visualizer streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel.
Earlier this year, the Twenty One Pilots shared an official music video for “Chlorine,” which is directed by longtime collaborator Reel Bear Media and streaming now on the band’s YouTube channel. “Chlorine” is featured on Twenty One Pilots’ acclaimed LP TRENCH, which made a stunning global impact upon release this past October. The RIAA gold certified collection earned the GRAMMY® Award winning duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun their biggest sales week ever in the U.S., with 175,000 units sold in its first week. An extraordinary achievement for the Columbus, OH band who moved 135,000 copies of TRENCH in pure album sales without the aid of a ticket / album bundle for their worldwide headline “Banditø Tour.” TRENCH — with over 52 Million on-demand audio streams its first week — also marked the largest streaming week (debut or otherwise) in the U.S. for a rock album. A true global phenomenon amassing 110 Million streams worldwide in its first week, TRENCH earned Twenty One Pilots Top 5 chart debuts around the globe including the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Scotland, and Sweden, with #1 debuts in Australia, New Zealand, and The Netherlands. TRENCH is available worldwide at all DSPs and www.twentyonepilots.com.
TRENCH is highlighted bythe #1 Alternative smash “Jumpsuit,” which became the decade’s fastest rising song to reach #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart, and also earned the duo their fourth GRAMMY® nomination (Best Rock Song). TRENCH also features album standouts “Nico And The Niners,” “Levitate,” and “My Blood,” which is accompanied by a Tim Mattia directed music videos streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel and all other providers.
Twenty One Pilots’ TRENCH follows the Twenty One Pilots’ global breakout BLURRYFACE, which made a stunning chart debut upon its initial release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #1.
