Twenty One Pilots band was founded in 2009 by three college friends, Nick Thomas, Tyler Joseph and Chris Salih. It’s Tyler who came up with the name “Twenty One Pilots” for the band, a name he’s pointed out he got from Arthur Miller’s play “All My Sons.” The play spins around a man who after knowingly sending faulty parts to an aircraft repair that resulted into the death of 21 pilots is forced to decide what’s best for his family. It’s the moral dilemma within the story that inspired Tyler to use the name for the band.
The group didn’t have any major project until 2009 when they decided to release their debut, self-titled album that would mark the beginning of their music career. The album was self-released as the group wasn’t signed to any label by then. In 2010, they again self-released two new tracks, which included a cover to Christina Perri’s song, jar of the heart, and a new song titled “Time to say Goodbye, ” all released via their SoundCloud account. These songs were availed for free downloading, but at the time of writing this the option appears to have since been removed.
The group continued performing together until 2011 when Salih and Thomas sequentially decided to pull out, citing busy schedules. They even went ahead and bade their fans farewell via the group’s Facebook fan page. They would eventually be replaced by Josh Dun, a former House of Heroes’ drummer. Then new lineup would then self-release the band’s second album, Regional at Best, on 8th July, 2011. This album was accompanied by a sold-out free CD release show held at New Albany High School. And later on another show at Newport Music Hall that catapulted the band to the spotlight.
The Vessel was released in April 2012, and again accompanied by a release show held at Lifestyle Communities pavilion. It’s during the show that the group announced their signing to “Fueled by Ramen”, a subsidiary label to “Atlantic Records". They would then release a 3-song EP under the label, and later on embark on tours with Walk on the Moon and Neon Trees. On January 8th, 2013 the group released their third studio album, Vessel, under the label, followed by their fourth and also their latest album, Blurryface, being released 2 years later (March 16, 2015).
