Twenty One Pilots have announced the release of a vinyl box set for the 10th anniversary of their third studio album Vessel.
“Vessel” was the first Twenty One Pilots album released Fueled By Ramen, and it included the songs “Ode to Sleep”, “Holding on to You”, “House of Gold”, “Car Radio”, “Guns For Hands”. ‘and ‘Tree’, which were on their previous album ‘Regional At Best’, but were re-recorded.
The limited one-time edition includes a luxurious caramel-style box set with a double LP with printed sleeves and a triple cover, as well as a lenticular insert and fake Polaroid photos.
Side A and side B will include the album’s original track listing, while side C includes four live tracks recorded during a hometown concert at The LC Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio. Side D includes songs originally released on “Regional At Best”: “Forest”, “Glowing Eyes”, “Kitchen Sink” and “Lovely”.
In addition to the 10th anniversary box set, the band also announced a 10-year-old Vessel merch collection inspired by the album cover. The collection includes T-shirts, hoodies and hoodies, which can be purchased here.
The box set will be released on February 3 and is available for pre-order here.
Yesterday (January 8) Twenty One Pilots celebrated the anniversary of their debut album with a special live broadcast on YouTube. The three-hour broadcast included previously unpublished archival footage, shared memories, games and spontaneous performance of tracks on the ukulele.
In addition to the stream, the group collected donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. During the broadcast, they raised more than $45,000 (£37,000).
Earlier this month, Twenty One Pilots completed the cycle of their latest album “Scaled And Icy”.
Frontman Tyler Joseph took to Instagram on January 1 to talk about the writing period of the band’s sixth album, which was released during the COVID pandemic, when touring was limited.
The singer finished his post with the words: “And that’s where it ends.” The symbol “ψ” is Psi, the 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet, also known as “psyche” (meaning mind or soul), from which the term “psyche” originated.
However, Twenty One Pilots did not explicitly state in the post that this is the end of an era, and did not say anything about a new album that will make fans assume that the chapter is closed.
Elsewhere last summer, the band shared a mix of the theme music from “Very Strange Things” and their 2016 song “Heathens” — watch the performance here.
