UNCASVILLE, CT (July 11, 2019) – Twenty One Pilots have announced a new U.S. leg of their global headline “Banditø Tour” due to overwhelming demand. The new Live Nation-produced tour dates, which follow this summer’s sold-Alternaout arena run, are set to make a stop at Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday, October 17th at 8:00pm with special guest Misterwives.

Earlier this year, the Twenty One Pilots shared an official music video for “Chlorine,” which is featured on Twenty One Pilots’ acclaimed LP TRENCH, that made a stunning global impact upon release this past October. The RIAA gold certified collection earned the Grammy Award winning duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun their biggest sales week ever in the U.S., with 175,000 units sold in its first week. An extraordinary achievement for the Columbus, OH band who moved 135,000 copies of TRENCH in pure album sales without the aid of a ticket/album bundle for their worldwide headline “Banditø Tour.” TRENCH – with over 52 million on-demand audio streams its first week – also marked the largest streaming week (debut or otherwise) in the U.S. for a Rock album. A true global phenomenon amassing 110 million streams worldwide in its first week, TRENCH earned Twenty One Pilots Top 5 chart debuts around the globe including the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Scotland, and Sweden, with #1 debuts in Australia, New Zealand, and The Netherlands. TRENCH is available worldwide at all DSPs and twentyonepilots.com.
TRENCH is highlighted by the #1 Alternative smash “Jumpsuit,” which became the decade’s fastest rising song to reach #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart, and also earned the duo their fourth Grammy nomination (Best Rock Song). TRENCH also features album standouts “Nico And The Niners,” “Levitate,” and “My Blood.”
Twenty One Pilots’ TRENCH follows the Twenty One Pilots’ global breakout BLURRYFACE, which made a stunning chart debut upon its initial release, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #1. The album also achieved a milestone unrivaled in the digital era, becoming the first album in which every individual song on the album certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum by the RIAA.
BLURRYFACE spawned a series of hit singles, beginning with the 2x RIAA platinum certified “Tear In My Heart,” and followed by the #1 sensations, “Ride” (5x platinum certified) and the 7x platinum certified, Grammy Award-winning “Stressed Out.” The latter track – which reached #2 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – spent three months at #1 at Modern Rock while also topping the charts at CHR/Top 40 and Hot AC. “Stressed Out” was a worldwide breakthrough for Twenty One Pilots, earning gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications in countries spanning Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
BLURRYFACE was then followed by still another world-conquering hit single, “Heathens,” featured on Atlantic Records’ blockbuster Suicide Squad: The Album. The 6x RIAA platinum certified single – which received three Grammy Award nominations including “Best Rock Performance” (Tyler Joseph, songwriter) – spent four consecutive weeks at #2 on the “Hot 100” while also topping Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” for a record-shattering 28 consecutive weeks and counting. The unprecedented one-two punch of “Ride” and “Heathens” made Billboard history, establishing Twenty One Pilots as only the third Rock act with simultaneous top 5 “Hot 100” singles in the chart’s 58-year history, following only the Beatles and Elvis Presley. In addition, the “Heathens” companion video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Rock Video” and has now earned more than 1.2 billion individual views via YouTube alone.
