Twenty One Pilots have finally released the music video for their new song “Levitate.”
This completes the trilogy of singles recently released by the band, starting with “Jumpsuit” and “Nico and the Niners.” The videos follow frontman Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun as they join a group of rebels in a torch-lit, post-apocalyptic gathering.
Andrew Donoho directs, and Joseph raps over psychedelic synths and Dun’s primal drum beat. Although the video seemingly ends on a cliffhanger – a mysterious character drags away a bound and despondent Joseph – the band concludes the story on Twitter.
