Next Semester: Twenty One Pilots Return with a High-Octane Anthem

Exploring the Power-Punk Revival and Global Tour Announcement for 'Clancy'

Twenty One Pilots have unleashed their latest sonic offering, “Next Semester,” giving fans a taste of what’s to come from their eagerly awaited album, “Clancy,” slated for release on May 17.

With “Next Semester,” the duo delivers a raw and urgent burst of power-punk, embodying the relentless pursuit of renewal while confronting the ghosts of the past head-on. Tyler Joseph’s emotive vocals drive home the song’s message, as he reminisces: “I remember, I remember certain things/What I was wearing, the yellow dashes in the street/I prayed those lights would take me home/Then I heard, ‘Hey kid, get out of the road!

The accompanying music video, masterfully directed by Andrew Donoho, captures the essence of the track as Twenty One Pilots electrify a bustling crowd in an intimate club setting. Seamlessly blending live performance with cinematic visuals, the video paints a vivid picture that resonates with the song’s themes.
