This week, twenty one pilots' Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun hit the cover of Kerrang! to reveal all about their upcoming sixth album, Scaled And Icy. And, as well as detailing everything you need to know about their exciting next chapter, the duo also tease that they've continued to work on even more new music beyond what's on the way.
Reflecting on the writing process of SAI, the frontman explains, "Usually when we’re done working on a record I feel completely burnt out; I’ve put everything into it that I have, and I’m done with writing, done with music, for however long. And on this one, for some reason – maybe it’s because I know that we’re not going to go out and play shows – after finishing it, I didn’t feel that same burnt-out feeling. And I’ve actually continued to create, even after. I’m still writing and excited about music. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing… hopefully it’s just a good thing!”
Last summer, Tyler had suggested that there were "two very different records" that could follow 2018's incredible Trench. So which one did he go for on Scaled And Icy – and what might come after that?
"I think maybe I’ll be able to answer the question on which album did I write when I was referring to 'there’s two different ways to go', I’ll be able to answer that once I’ve written this next one as well, and I’ll be able to pit them against each other and see what was the route that we were trying to take here," he says.
