Almost exactly one year after Twenty One Pilots signed off all their social networks they returned this week with new music, an album, and a tour. So what were they doing during this year of silence?
Drummer Josh Dun: "I don't know if we've ever actually used the word “hiatus,” but I guess it kind of means sort of, like a break in work," Dun said. "But we’ve been working, and I think the way that we looked at it was just kind of like an intentional quiet period, which kind of happened for multiple reasons."
Apparently this conversation started a while ago: "There was a conversation of stepping back a little bit, to just make sure that there's [sic] actual things to talk about and deliver, rather than meaningless posts, just to exist. I think during the time where we were creating and working, we kind of wanted to just step back a little bit, and be present in that world, and not bore people with stuff that isn't as important as the content we're working on."
