ALBUM REVIEW: Trench - Twenty One Pilots
Twenty One Pilots is made up of the duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, who present their fifth studio album 'Trench'.
In recent years, the pair have risen to fame with their most successful singles 'Stressed Out', 'Ride' and 'Heathens' which was recorded for the film Suicide Squad.
It is difficult to put this band or album into a musical genre and Trench shows a new approach to this multi-genre style.
Throughout the album, themes with difficult subjects are tackled.
Lyrically, every song is thought provoking but stand out tracks such as 'Neon Gravestones' and 'My Blood' are a must listen.
'Jumpsuit' is the opening track on the album and it has a fierce ending of screaming and an air-raid bass breakdown.
This intensity is not repeated again on the album but it gets darker and darker with songs such as 'Chlorine'. Trench is a menacing and thought-provoking album that will challenge any listener.
The band is on tour in the UK and Ireland from February 27 next year with dates taking in Glasgow, Birmingham, London and Manchester.
