Twenty one pilots are gearing up to film a new music video, and it looks like it will be full of fans from their hometown.
The band is currently finishing up the U.S. leg of the Bandito Tour in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
You can see in a since-deleted tweet posted to Reddit that the video will be filmed on July 2 and 3. They were looking for 18-30-year-olds to feature in it. It will be directed by Andrew Donoho, who directs many of TOPs videos.
It seems as though the band got many submissions to choose from.

Many fans began theorizing what song the video could be for. Many people on Reddit believe it is for Morph, while others have different ideas. You can see some of the theories below.
the music video has GOT to be for The Hype. it’s got such a clique feel to it; not caring if everyone gets it, but caring about those who do. #BanditoColumbus

Everyone ‘s talking about the twenty one pilots’s music video? I think, that it’ll be Smithereens or Cut my lip. Idk why. A lot of people think that it’ll be the hype or Bandito. I don’t mind about Bandito. bc it’s one of my most favourite song of the album.

We’ll have to wait and see what the video ends up being, but it sounds amazing.
As previously stated, twenty one pilots have their last show of this leg in Columbus tonight. The city decided to change the street name, at least temporarily, in honor of the weekend of hometown shows.
According to Reddit, the street was temporarily changed from Nationwide Blvd. to twenty one pilots Blvd. It’s definitely fitting considering the huge gig this weekend and we wish it would stay permanently.
Along with the street, twenty one pilots have also opened a pop-up shop.
It’s called “Ned’s Bayou” and will sell merch during the weekend of the shows. The signs read that it is a “fine pool equipment” store.
If you call the number (+1 614 389 9169) you are transferred to a phone message with the shop’s hours.
looks like columbus got a little makeover,, i’m proud pic.twitter.com/DoGeE3SP1M

More twenty one pilots news
In an exclusive RADIO.COM Storyteller performance, Joseph takes some of the band’s biggest tracks back to where they first started.
“When I was first uncovering them or discovering them, they were very fragile and almost like a little scared animal that you don’t want to scare away when you’re trying to feed it,” Joseph explains.
The stripped down tracks include “Ride,” “Smithereens,” “Chlorine,” “My Blood” and “Cut My Lip.”
“Whether it’s a particular sound – it could be any version of art, whether it’s a movie or a story or a play, but for my own songs in a different setting – kind of being forced to work on something and rehearse something and recreate something – even though it was hard work, I had to be ready for it,” Joseph says. “Ultimately it gave me a gift of being inspired and from those ideas stemmed ideas that maybe people will hear in the future.”
Check out the reimagined tracks below!
