After teasing it all the way back in December, twenty one pilots have just shared their epic, cinematic new video for The Outside – and it was worth the wait.

"This is a story about cycles, and trying to break them," the duo say of their latest promo. "About discerning between external and internal attacks. And about balance. A balance between being saved by a friend, and saving yourself.

"Here is the official video for The Outside."

We won't say anything else as it's a mesmerising and Easter egg-filled watch – enjoy:

Speaking to Kerrang! last year about The Outside and its meaning, frontman Tyler Joseph revealed, “That’s one of my favourites [on Scaled And Icy], for sure. I kind of felt like that song was me thinking I’m the old guy in the room – which is kind of a new feeling! But just seeing a lot of new artists and new songs and new movements and a lot of great creative awesome stuff, you know, you start to grips with the fact that your career is gonna come to an end at some point – just like your life. And no-one likes to talk about it or think about it. So how can we come to grips with it and actually benefit from coming to grips with it – to benefit from being at peace with there being an inevitable ending to when people just do not care to hear what you have to say anymore?

“That song is kind of wrestling with that, and not in a fearful way, but in a coming to grips way. And I actually think that it left room for a new sense of fearlessness.”
