The Earliest Album

Album History

Tyler Joseph made himself learn the arts of music in his basement area. The keyboard and a little bit of drumming and piano as well. This primarily was the reason why they have achieved immense success as a band to this day, that driving force and consistency, the ability to learn and the passion is what drives Tyler and the band members. In alliance with the former band members, Salih and Thomas, they gave birth to this band Twenty One Pilots. After lots of experimenting in Tyler’s basement they finally decided to release their first album which they enchristened “Twenty One Pilots” to reflect their band name and a brand too. This may have been to promote their band’s name in the early stages. This album which was recorded in the basement was the stepping stone to the success and fame they have achieved today. The album rocked the American market literally; it gave music a new meaning and elevated the standard of music in many quarters.
