Twenty One Pilots' Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are "closer than ever"

Credit: Brad HeatonThanks to their record-breaking 2015 album Blurryface, Twenty One Pilots experienced a meteoric rise over the past few years. Following a year-long social media hiatus, a new album, Trench, is finally now on the horizon, fans are now wondering if the increased fame has changed the relationship between their beloved duo, made up of frontman Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun.

"When asked if we've changed, I thought about the dynamic between us," Dun tells Alternative Press. "I think we're closer than ever in a really cool way."

While Dun and Joseph have become closer, their music is spanning greater distances. While Blurryface focused on one character, Trench -- which features the lead single "Jumpsuit" -- is about a whole world Joseph created from scratch.

"There's something about it that is uncomfortable and uneasy and scary, but man, that's where I'm supposed to be," Joseph explains. "A lot of things I was dealing with and still am helped me try to create that world. I felt that like I was trying to create some control."

The whole interview will be available in the next issue of Alternative Press, which is available for pre-order now.

Trench will be released October 5. Twenty One Pilots will launch a North American tour behind the album October 16 in Nashville. They play their first show since announcing Trench tonight in London.
