This past December, Twenty-One Pilots and MUTEMATH released (TOP x MUTEMATH). The album offers 5 re-imagined songs including hits like “Heathens” and “Ride”. This coloration breathes life into some old favorites from Twenty-One Pilots. These revamped songs are welcome additions to the band's already strong repertoire of original pieces.
Twenty-One Pilots will be headlining Firefly for 2017. This will conclude the duo’s tour. The immensely popular duo has no easily defined genre, but that's what makes their collaboration with MUTEMATH so enjoyable - it simply sounds amazing and full of years of influence and the development of a unique sound. “Heavydirtysoul” on (TOP X MUTEMATH) is by far my favorite song out of the plethora available currently.
MUTEMATH is best described as electro-experimental rock and this new album follows the coattails of quartet’s first independent records (2015's Vitals; 2016's Changes). This is the band’s next step into evolving their sound from the various genres they have experimented with.
MUTEMATH is also finishing their fifth studio LP and are planning a tour for the summer.
