Mutemath supported twenty one pilots on the Emotional Roadshow world tour’s summer 2016 leg. , Meany was then included in Trench’s production following the tour’s conclusion.
Meany continued to spill details on his role with the album on Instagram live, using some choice analogies to explain the creative process that went into the album.
Using football to describe his position during production, Meany says he filled multiple positions that were needed.

He went on to describe frontman Tyler Joseph as the quarterback and Dun as the star wide receiver before getting back into the nuts and bolts of how he got to be involved Trench.
“The first song we worked on was ‘Jumpsuit,’ and then what turned into three songs, then four, then five,” Meany says. “Tyler finally called me in the spring of last year and was like, ‘Man, let’s just do all 14 like this.’ I was elated. I was so excited.”
For the past 9 months, I’ve had the best seat in the house getting to watch and work along side this maestro. SOOO thrilled to have gotten to collab with Tyler and Josh again and lend the assist for this epic new album. Unforgettable experience! And this really is a remarkable collection of songs y’all. I’m so proud of Tyler and co. for coming through. Also thanks for the kind messages I got on the first four songs for those of you who graciously asserted my involvement. 😂 There’s still 10 more breath-takers on the way. The world is in for a treat October 5th! (or whenever it gets leaked) #twentyonepilots // eternal love-:-
He closed out the clip by attributing the different reactions the album causes to Joseph, Dun and himself, explaining what feelings come from which artist.
“If you find yourself saying ‘wow,’ that feeling of elation, that’s Tyler,” Meany says.
