More on band logos
The original yellow and black logo first made its appearance in 2018 when the duo was ushering in the Trench era. Unlike the two before it, an extra slash was added to each side of the hyphen. Singer Tyler Joseph later explained this as symbolism of protection the duo’s evolution.
“The feeling of being surrounded by something that’s protecting you,” he says. “I knew I wanted that logo to have those extra layer of protection.”
The band recently updated their Twitter and Facebook accounts with a new image, and although the change is small, it didn’t go unnoticed.
An observant Twitter user posted the side by side images, the new logo is sharp, unlike its predecessor, which looks worn.

Trench is more defined after two years. No long and idea or rough sketch. She a solid logo of resistance and hope for the clique

What if it means they’ve recovered in some way. By the way the first logo looks like it’s lines are almost full and now the new logo’s lines are filled in completely. ITS WHOLE NOW
