twenty one pilots drop dark, cinematic trailer for Saturday music video

Get your notepads ready, people: twenty one pilots are teasing a cinematic new video for Saturday – and there’s a lot to take in…

While twenty one pilots’ latest album Scaled And Icy didn’t appear to be as directly linked to 2018’s Trench LP on the surface, in a dramatic new teaser for the band’s new video for Saturday it looks like that world is still very much alive…

Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have shared an incredible looking 41-second teaser for the upcoming video (which is coming soon”), with what appears to be a disco party on a boat suddenly taking a very dark turn – and the evil, dictatorial Bishops of Dema appearing at the end in goosebump-inducing fashion.

Director Andrew Donoho shared alongside the clip: The trailer for our Saturday music video is out. I’ve never been so stoked to show everybody what we have been cooking up. It’s gonna be a spicy one.” Oooooh…

Speaking to Kerrang! in May about Trench possibly tying in with Scaled And Icy, Tyler explained: I’ve always felt like it’s a real waste of an opportunity to not be creating a story inside of music, and even when I first started writing songs I knew I wanted to attach something larger to it. But, at the same time, Josh and I have always talked about not wanting there to be a prerequisite to enjoy the songs; we don’t want you to have to know all the details of the story thus far in order to really enjoy and find something that means something to you inside of a song.”

He added of the Scaled And Icy creative process compared to Trench, It was definitely more fluid, and a little less chronological. It was a departure, in a sense. You would just chase the next idea, and the next idea, and put it together. I would look at [the songs] as a whole and position them. I think I knew when I was writing Good Day that it would be [first on the tracklist], and I knew that Redecorate would be last, and I knew Choker was second, too. But other than that, it felt like we had our bookends to play in, and then we were just creating inside of it.

But when you know where to look, it still anchors to the story we’ve been telling.”
