Hollywood, CA, September 2018 -Grammy(r) Award-winning duo, Twenty One Pilots, recently recorded songs for their fifth studio album, “Trench,” collaborating with Grammy (r) Award-winning engineer Darrell Thorp at United Recording. The new album is scheduled for release on October 5.
In 2013, Twenty One Pilots rose to fame after several years of touring and independent releases. The group achieved breakthrough success with their fourth album, “Blurryface,” which produced the hit singles, “Stressed Out” and “Ride.” In 2016, the group released “Heathens” as the lead single on the Suicide Squad soundtrack, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both “Heathens” and “Ride” charted in the same week, making the group the first alternative artists to have two concurrent top ten singles in the U.S, joining The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The following year, the duo won a Grammy (r) Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
The group selected United to record songs for their latest album and to collaborate with Thorp, a seven-time Grammy(r) Award-winning producer and recording engineer. His work with stellar artists like OutKast, Radiohead, Switchfoot, Molotov and Beck has helped produce numerous multi-platinum albums and industry accolades.
“I love working at United Recording,” said Thorp. “It’s my home away from home. The mic selection, console and the recording rooms help to effortlessly capture great tones. United was my go-to studio when producer Paul Meany asked to help make this record.”
“Trench” is scheduled for release on October 5 and available for pre-order at all Digital Service Providers, with exclusive pre-order bundles offered at www.twentyonepilots.com. To view the videos of recently released singles, please visit the following links:
