Twenty One Pilots Troll Fans By Performing ‘New Song’ That’s Impossible to Hear

Twenty One Pilots recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of their album, “Vessel” with a “variety” stream on their YouTube channel, however, fans were shocked that they couldn’t hear anything. During Sunday’s three-hour stream, you might have noticed that drummer, Josh Dun, kept coming in and out to get different parts of his drum kit that he’d forgotten to bring with him.

Then, at the end of the stream, when he finally had everything together to play their new song, the drums were turned up so loud that you couldn’t hear Tyler sing or play his ukulele. Fans picked up on clues hidden throughout the stream. At one point, Tyler’s computer screen showed a hidden song called, “I’m Not Home,” fans are speculating that was what the duo was playing.

Gorman has signed a deal with Cumulus Media that will see him join the morning crew at Minneapolis classic rock station KQRS-FM, the station has announced. Gorman’s first day on the air was Monday.

The gig doesn’t mark Gorman’s first foray into radio. Since August 2019, he’s been the host of the syndicated radio show “Steve Gorman Rocks!” The nightly program will now air from KQRS’ studios in Minneapolis, a rep says.
