Abandoning the story of the battling Banditos for a few minutes, Twenty One Pilots go deep in the affecting new video for "My Blood." The clip, which dropped on Friday morning (Oct. 5) just hours after the release of the Columbus, Ohio-bred duo's fifth album, Trench, tells the story of a pair of brothers whose bond is cemented by a childhood spent with an alcoholic father (portrayed by singer Tyler Joseph).
In what appears to be an homage to the classic S.E. Hinton novel The Outsiders, the two -- one a loud, scene-making rabble-rouser, the younger a quiet, shy introvert -- are constantly at odds with the jocks at their high school, whom they taunt and seem perpetually on the verge of brawling with. Things heat up to a boiling point at a Halloween house party, where the sibs dress up as skeletons and dance to the super funky house band. Guess who?
