American music duo Twenty One Pilots have blown up over the past two years. They, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, got together in Columbus, Ohio in 2009. After putting out two self-released albums, Twenty One Pilots (2009) and Regional at Best (2001), the duo was signed to the Fueled by Ramen label, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records, in 2012. Shortly after came their debut with the label, Vessel, in 2013. Commercial success came with their sophomore effort, Blurryface, released in 2015.
Tyler and Josh were friends at college and decided to form a band. They got the name from the Arthur Miller play, All My Sons. After struggling to get noticed for a few years they burst onto the charts with “Holding On to You”, “Tear in My Heart” and then finally broke huge with the single “Stressed Out” that peaked at number two on the Billboard Singles Chart. Blurryface went to the top of the Album Chart.
