While we are still basking in twenty one pilots latest album, TRENCH...it looks like they aren't done with that storyline yet. In a new interview with NME, singer Tyler Joseph confirms that he has started writing for their next album. “There’s definitely an end-game. There’s a story. I think I was very specific that there’s a reason why the record ends with [the song] ‘Leave The City’ and the song itself is a kind of cliffhanger. I mean, the whole thing was it’s setting up for what’s next and it’d be silly to not at least resolve what we’ve already started,” says the singer. He continues, “There’s a character that hasn’t been talked about on any record yet that plays a huge role in the narrative that obviously will need to be talked about and it’s probably where we’re going next." Finishing his thought, Joseph adds, “It’s not going to be rehashing all the same themes, but it’s gonna recall all that and introduce a new character, a new direction.”
I love how the same songs mean completely different things to different people. I heard 'Leave The City' as a final chapter, a resolve...guess it's just the start.
