This is major...
Josh and Tyler are not messing around this era. Twenty One Pilots returned last month with their amazing new singles 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico and the Niners'. Not only that but they also revealed that their new album Trench would be coming out this September. To top it all off, they also announced their BANDITØ tour and they released two epic music videos for 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico and the Niners'.

That's not all though. Today the band surprise released their new single 'Levitate' alongside a stunning music video. The visual continues the story that the boys began telling in 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico and the Niners'. In it Tyler arrives at the rebel camp which Josh is leading and they initiate him into their clan. However, there is a major plot twist and it is high-key distressing.
Watch and listen to 'Levitate' here
Twenty One Pilots took to Twitter to unveil the brand new video today. The duo wrote: "•••/••• a story from Trench concludes in 'Levitate', the video we uploaded today. ||-//". The band also debuted 'Levitate' on Beats 1 as Zane Lowe's prestigious World Record at 17:00 (GMT). Yes. TØP really are THAT band.
The release comes just hours after 'Levitate' and an alleged Trench tracklist leaked. Apparently Tidal accidentally uploaded the single earlier today and it had to be taken down ahead of its official release. So, in spite of the leak, it seems as though the group were always meant to release 'Levitate' today.

They very quickly deleted the song.
Tyler Joseph did NOT leak the song.

We couldn't be happier to have it. We can't wait to see what else Josh and Tyler have in store of us.
