Good news, Clique: all will be revealed. In an interview with NME, Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph promised fans that the epic saga that began with the group's breakthrough 2015 Blurryface album and continued through to last year's Trench, with the expansion of the drama surrounding Dema and the Banditos, will all be wrapped up at some point.
“There’s definitely an end-game," Joseph said. "There’s a story. I think I was very specific that there’s a reason why the record ends with [the song] ‘Leave The City’ and the song itself is a kind of cliff-hanger. I mean, the whole thing was it’s setting up for what’s next and it’d be silly to not at least resolve what we’ve already started.” Joseph also said the band plans to expand the story on their next album, which promises the introduction of another new dramatis personae.
“There’s a character that hasn’t been talked about on any record yet that plays a huge role in the narrative that obviously will need to be talked about and it’s probably where we’re going next," he said. “So it’s not going to be rehashing all the same themes, but it’s gonna recall all that and introduce a new character, a new direction.”
