twenty one pilots vocalist Tyler Joseph performed “My Blood” just on piano for the first time ever on the BBC Live Lounge, and it’s stunning.

Plus, he also performed stunning stripped down versions of blurryface‘s “Ride” and a cover of Damien Rice’s “9 Crimes.”

Listen to the performances and an interview in full below.

twenty one pilots are kicking off BBC’s Live Lounge month in the best possible way. Joseph shared some stories about the band’s beginnings, their relationship to fans and performed some songs on piano—including “My Blood” for the first time ever.

The interview happened at their hometown of Columbus, Ohio at the Newport Music Hall. Joseph gushes about the city, saying, he’s “probably not going to ever leave.”

Plus, the venue is pretty special because that’s where he and drummer Josh Dun met for the first time. According to him, the duo met after one of his performances at the place. Dun, who was watching the show, introduced himself and said he liked the show. And that’s how it all started.

Joseph also talked about the band’s incredibly loyal fanbase.

“It’s a sense of pride I have. I’ll pit our fans against any other group of people,” the vocalist says.

Of course, one of their biggest fans it Joseph’s grandfather, who not only wears TOP merch around, but recently got new license plates that say “twenty one pilots.” Our hearts can’t handle that much cuteness.

You can listen to the interview, plus the performances, in full below or on the BBC Sounds website.

twenty one pilots tour dates

twenty one pilots are currently out on the Bandito tour (for which the setlist has been revealed) with support from Awolnation and Max Frost.

Plus, they released their first behind-the-scenes tour video, including the moment where the two TØP bandmates crack open their CD and vinyl copies of Trench for the very first time.

twenty one pilots recently revealed the reasoning behind their new Trench-era logo, which gained an extra slash on each side.

“If you were to look at those two [logos] that we had done in the past, and put it together, it would create a logo that is two upward [slashes] and two sideways [slashes],” Joseph explains. “It’s kind of a continuation of what we’ve been working on.”
