This month has already been a big one for twenty one pilots. Last week, they released a music video for “Level Of Concern,” their first new piece of music since their 2018 album Trench. Along with the excitement the video release caused, it also stirred up quite a lot of speculation that drummer Josh Dun and Debby Ryan may have secretly married.
This week, Dun has revealed even more of what he has been working on over the past few months.
Dun has teamed up again with SJC Custom Drums to release a custom-designed crowd snare. Covered in an acrylic shell that is the signature Trench yellow, the snare also features flat black hardware. The details of the snare are exactly like the snare Dun uses when he drums on the crowd during twenty one pilots shows.
Now, this isn’t the first time Dun and SJC Custom Drums have collaborated together. Back in 2017, Dun designed a snare drum that featured red and matte black details to match their 2015 album Blurryface. He has also collaborated on a number of different items including practice pads and more with the Massachusetts-based company.
Dun’s brand new SJC Drums crowd snare is available for pre-order on the SJC Custom Drums official website. All orders are anticipated to be shipped out mid-May.

Dun took to social media today to share news about the collaboration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced the cancellation of shows and tours worldwide, Dun also mentioned how he is currently using his crowd snare in the comfort of his own home.
On his Twitter page, Dun shares that “we call this the crowd snare, but since there are no crowds anywhere in sight, I just ride these drums around on top of my dog Jim.”

twenty one pilots were set to perform their only home state show of 2020 at Bunbury Music Festival in June, but that has since been canceled due to the pandemic. The band is still scheduled to play a number of gigs from May to July. You can see the full list of dates here.
