From their early self-titled album, all the way to “Blurryface,” Twenty One Pilots just released their fifth album, “Trench,” and it is nothing less of a masterpiece.

A duo from Columbus, Ohio, Twenty One Pilots is a two man band consisting of Tyler Joseph and Joshua Dun. In a little over three years since releasing their breakthrough album, “Blurryface,” which was full of upbeat and pop songs, “Trench” brings long-term fans back to the earlier eras of Twenty One Pilots. With “Trench” being their fifth album, it definitely lived up to excellent expectation based off their prior albums.

It takes a twist on upbeat sounds while also tying in sadder, more intense sounds, making it the perfect track to make the album tie together upbeat and intense sounds.
