Twenty One Pilots’ Tyler Joseph Feels a “Greater Sense of Freedom” Towards Next Album

ABC/Randy HolmesTwenty One Pilots is still riding high on the massive success of 2015's Blurryface, but frontman Tyler Joseph has already started to think about the band's next album.

"Looking forward to the next record, I feel a greater sense of freedom and less pressure," Joseph tells Alternative Press. "I felt a lot more pressure going from [2013's] Vessel to Blurryface. It didn't happen the way [industry people] talk about it. There wasn't a massive single [from Vessel] that projected into the pop charts."

"What we did was still different from their formula," he continues. "Because it got beyond a certain point, I feel so much confidence that I can look at those people and look at myself and say, 'I know what we're making is for a group of people out there that want to hear it.' That's all the confidence I need."

Joseph feels that the next Twenty One Pilots album will be even more confident, even if the lyrics won't necessarily reflect that.

"I'm not saying the songs will sound confident, I'm saying the song structures will," he says. "Lyrically, the songs will always be the same reason why I started writing them in the first place -- to say things that I felt I couldn't say in a regular context."

Twenty One Pilots is currently touring in support of Blurryface on their massive Emotional Roadshow tour.
