Remember when we said that this band is practically always on our newsfeed with some cool tour recap, mash up or another award? Well, it happened again. Twenty One Pilots are nominated for this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Not once, not twice, not five or ten times, SEVENTEEN times, including the awards for Top Artist, Top Duo/Group and Top Rock Song (you can check out the full list HERE.)
Fun fact: In the category Top Rock Song the band is up against some particularly tough competition: themselves! With “Stressed Out”, “Ride” and “Heathens”, three out of the five nominees are coming from the duo.
But that is not all concerning the latest Twenty One Pilots related news. After the intense series of announcements and ticket sales for the “Tour de Columbus”, five tour dates in various venues of the band’s hometown Columbus, Ohio, and the end of their Emotional Roadshow World Tour with its last show in Perth, Australia, fans are still waiting for the last two chapters of the “Sleepers” series recapping said tour.
The next one will most likely be revolving around “Not Today”. Being possibly one of the lesser known songs on the “Blurryface” album, “Not Today” is still just as strong as every other track on the record, with comforting and self-observing lyrics such as “Listen, I know this one's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds / But the lyrics are so down / It's okay though, because it represents, wait better yet, it is / Who I feel I am right now”.
Knowing you guys, most of you are probably already familiar with all of that though, so why not go and give “Not Today” another listen below!
