Twenty One Pilots' Blurryface Success Didn't Come Over Night

(TeamRock Radio) Twenty One Pilots credit their years of hard work on the road for the success of fourth album Blurryface. The follow-up to 2013's Vessel became Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph first-ever number 1 hit in the US last month. And Joseph says proving they could cut it live has been the key to their rise to the top.

He tells Red Bull TV: "When people try and strategize on how to build a fan base, the first thing they go to is trying to write that perfect song and hoping it comes out of the gun and takes off.

"We were never able to do that - I don't think we tried to do that, it wasn't the goal. As much as a single or some song exploding is very effective, a lot of people don't take into consideration taking advantage of every moment you're on stage in front of people.

He adds: "I just think it was several years of hard work and putting everything into each show. And when we came out with the record, people showed up and that was cool." Read more here.
