The 'Trench' trilogy concludes...
It's an incredible time to be a Twenty One Pilots fan. Not only have the boys just dropped three next level singles ('Jumpsuit', 'Nico and the Niners', 'Levitate') but they've also announced a world tour (The BANDITØ Tour) and revealed that their highly anticipated fifth studio album Trench is coming out this October. To top it all off, they've released a trilogy of music videos and they are all perfect.

Tyler and Josh put out 'Jumpsuit' first. In it we see Tyler in army uniform with yellow tape being kidnapped by a man in a red cloak. Fast forward to 'Nico and the Niners' and Tyler is stuck in the city of Dema in which the evil red-hooded cult preside. However, Josh and a band of people in army uniform and yellow tape find Tyler and help him escape. This leads us to 'Levitate'.
The visual continues the story that the boys began telling in 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico and the Niners'. In it Josh and the group in army uniform and yellow tape lead Tyler to their rebel camp. Here they initiate Tyler into their clan. However, just as it begins to seem as though everything is all right, Tyler is snatched by the man in a red cloak from 'Jumpsuit' and dragged away.
It is a lot to process.
Watch the 'Levitate' music video here.
Naturally, with this being a Twenty One Pilots video and all, there are loads of secret meanings and hidden messages. With that in mind, we've gathered them all of the easter eggs that we've spotted so far here.
1. A lot of fans think that the trilogy is about mental health.

I've always tried to explain what is like to have anxiety and depression but I've never succeed until now. I've never seen something so close to it as these two frames.#levitate pic.twitter.com/zC4Cr4xv1k
tyler continues to try and escape dema, but nico keep on finding him, everytime tyler thinks he's free he is sent back to that place, and that speaks so loud about mental illness #levitate— green ||-// (@lokilannister) August 8, 2018
This would be major if true.
2. It looks like the bishop infiltrated the Banditos.
This is too much.
3. In fact, maybe there was more than one imposter.
My interpretation of this is that the guys in the middle are spies for dema as they aren’t looking at the light and when they say welcome to trench they are admitting their guilt for sending free people back to dema, just a theory @CliffordStumme #Levitate pic.twitter.com/HQ3qAPKBV2— Ashleigh Zban (@Ashleigh_Zban) August 9, 2018
What is going on?
4. Tyler and Josh reference 'Car Radio' in the video and in the song's lyrics.
This is so clever.
5. Also the lyrics are directly linked to 'Jumpsuit'.
6. It seems like even Josh isn't capable of saving Tyler.
No. We're not crying. You are.
7. People are analysing the whole trilogy.
1) Jumpsuit- one of Tyler’s many failed escape attempts. 2)NATN - the banditos finally help him escape 3) Levitate- the banditos made it out, but he gets snatched away ?? #Levitate— em 💫 (@misses_em) August 8, 2018
This seems legit.
8. Although maybe this is the actual order.
9. Perhaps most heartbreaking of all the boys appear to be referencing their song 'A Car, A Torch, A Death' in the trilogy.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT TYLER IS DEAD?!!!!
10. One or two stans are reading deeply into it.
We stan this thinkpiece.
11. And last but not least fans are speculating as to whether or not we'll be getting more Trench history.
Considering that the album is out in October, we think another music video before then is definitely on the cards.
We shall update you as soon as their is more information.
