twenty one pilots make history with ‘Vessel’ certification
twenty one pilots may still be touring in support of last year's smash-hit record Trench, but their prior releases are still getting love years after release.
The duo's third studio album, Vessel, must still be on repeat for fans over six years later, now reaching a rare RIAA milestone.
Recently the final track of Vessel, "Truce," was Gold certified. With that honor, the album's entirety has been dubbed Gold or Platinum.
This was all part of the plan for fans, who schemed to push the two into the record books back in February.
A group of Redditors started the Fake You Out Project a few months back to urge others into promoting the song.
If we get Fake You Out enough streams we can make it Gold certified and make Twenty One Pilots the first band in history with two albums every single song gold certified! LETS GO!!! from r/twentyonepilots
The project was obviously a success. Not only is this a tremendous honor for the duo, but it's also a record-breaking one.
Along with every track from 2015's Blurryface, Vessel's certification makes twenty one pilots the first group or artist to have every song from two separate albums certified gold or silver.
Blurryface had already set records of its own after its release, becoming the first album from this era to have every track go gold or platinum.
