Twenty One Pilots
Scored first No. 1 album with Blurryface
First major label album, Vessel, released by Fueled by Ramen
New two-man band of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun release second album, Regional at Best
Original lineup issued self-titled album
Tyler Joseph drew the band's name from the Arthur Miller play All My Sons, which centers on a man struggling with the moral dilemma of manufacturing faulty airplane parts that caused the death of twenty-one pilots.
Though the band's members identify themselves as Christian and their songs often touch on Christian tenets, the group does not consider themselves a Christian act. Rather, they hope to inspire listeners to "think" and find "a meaning of purpose" in their own lives.
Joseph wore black paint on his face and neck when portraying Blurryface, the main character from that album. The character is supposed to represent insecurities felt by Joseph and people his age.
After playing Ohio for the first two years of the band's existence, Joseph and new band member Josh Dun played their first out-of-state show in 2011. It was attended by 12 people.
