Twenty One Pilots do battle in video for new single ‘Choker’

Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are seen battling each other in the new visuals

Twenty One Pilots have debuted the video for new single ‘Choker’, which sees Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph going head-to-head against each other.

It comes after the band debuted the clip via a platform they have launched to debut their sixth album ‘Scaled And Icy’ via a virtual event on May 21.

The clip sees Tyler Joseph visiting a toy store where he goes to battle with bandmate Josh Dun in an increasingly surreal feud. You can watch it in full below.

The second track from the album comes after the band revealed that ticket-holders for their platform will be able to “unlock a six-week interactive experience – your direct access to limited merchandise and special editions of the new album, Scaled And Icy.

“Don’t miss unpublished content and a chance for unique access to Tyler and Josh long before their epic live performance. This unpredictable journey ends on May 21 – yet it begins now,” they said.

You can buy tickets for the event here. 

The duo unveiled ‘Shy Away’, the first track from the album, earlier this month.

The 11-track record was written and largely produced by Tyler Joseph over the course of the past year at his home studio while he was in coronavirus-enforced isolation, with Josh Dun engineering the drums remotely from across the country.

‘Scaled And Icy’ is “the product of long-distance virtual sessions and finds the duo processing their upended routines along with the prevailing emotions of 2020 – anxiety, loneliness, boredom and doubt”, as per a press release.

While working on the project, the band adopted “a more imaginative and bold approach to their songwriting” which resulted in “a collection of songs that push forward through setbacks and focus on the possibilities worth remembering”.

It was also recently revealed that ‘Shy Away’ features cooing noises made by Tyler Joseph’s one-year-old daughter.
