Twenty One Pilots Come Back to Cincy for Bunbury Music Festival

Twenty One Pilots Come Back to Cincy for Bunbury Music Festival

By on  Comments

Coming back for the second time to the Bunbury Music Festival, Ohio natives, Twenty One Pilots, will be performing on the Sawyer Point stage on Sunday to hundreds of screaming fans, showcasing their new material.

The band released their fourth studio album called Blurry Face in May which includes hits like, “Fairly Local,” and “Tear in My Heart.”

Blurry Face, according to lead vocalist, Tyler Joseph, is a character that represents what people are insecure about. Tracks like “Fairly Local,” “Tear in My Heart,” and “Lane Boy” illustrate just that. 

The boys worked on the album with producers Ricky Reed (has worked with Pitbull, Fifth Harmony, and Mary Lambert), Mike Crossey (who has worked with The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, and Jake Bugg), Tim Anderson, and others. 

The album has been on the number one spot on the top 200 Billboard Chart since the release last week toping Taylor Swift’s 1989 (which has been the number one album 9 weeks in a row).

The band formed in 2009 with original members Tyler Joseph, Nick Thomas, and Chris Salih.  They started building a huge fan base across Ohio and the Midwest by touring and using social media to interact with fans. By 2011, Thomas and Salih left the band and drummer Josh Dunn joined.  Since then, the band has achieved great success with albums such as Vessel and their latest, Blurry Face.

Twenty One Pilots will be performing on Sunday at the Sawyer Point Stage at 8:15 p.m. Tickets for Sunday are $89.10 with taxes and fees.
