Twenty One Pilots Unveil Music Video For “Nico And The Niners”


Twenty One Pilots have released a music video for the track “Nico And The Niners”.

The band released the track alongside “Jumpsuit” two weeks ago.
The track will be featured on the band’s upcoming record “Trench”, which will release on October 5th this year via Fueled By Ramen.

Twenty One Pilots shared via social media that “Nico And The Niners” is part two of a 3 part story from the album “Trench”. 

The band released two tracks off of “Trench” so far, meaning the third part of the story is also a new track. Guess we’re going to have to wait and see how the story unfolds!

(Our thoughts on the storyline below the video)

It appears that in the “Nico And The Niners” music video, Tyler Joseph makes his escape from DEMA with a bunch of others, who we presume are the banditos (including Josh Dun).
If we have to guess, we believe the storyline of this music video comes before “Jumpsuit”, given the fact that the entire group is making their escape. In the music video for “Jumpsuit”, the banditos are on top of the trench, while Tyler Joseph is trapped in the trench with one of the bishops trying to lure him back to DEMA. This keeping in consideration, we believe that “Nico And The Niners” took place first, with the banditos escaping DEMA. Something happened, causing Tyler Joseph to be stuck in the trench while the rest of the banditos are on top of the trench. Perhaps the 3rd and last chapter of the story will unfold what happened to Tyler Joseph, causing him to be trapped with a bishop!

We later learned that Clancy, a character who was introduced on the dmaorg.info website via his letters, was in the trench at the same time the “Jumpsuit” music video was taking place. Whether he will play a more active role or will even make an appearance in the story hasn’t been revealed.
