Twenty One Pilots Break Chart Records With ‘Vessel’ Certification
It seems like Twenty One Pilots can't create anything without it eventually being awarded Gold or Platinum status by the Recording Industry Association of America. Indeed, just this week, yet another certification milestone has been met by the Ohio rock duo.
As reported by Forbes, Twenty One Pilots are now the first band to see every song on two albums go Gold or Platinum. This, after all tracks from both the band's Vessel (2013) and Blurryface (2015) reached the marker when Vessel's "Truce" — the lone remaining holdout — finally hit Gold. All the songs on Blurryface had previously been RIAA certified, making TØP's achievement a very rare one in the music industry, indeed.
"Vessel, the 2013 LP from Twenty One Pilots, has achieved a Gold & Platinum milestone with every individual track from the album receiving Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification from the RIAA," a press release read Wednesday (July 17). "Twenty One Pilots' 2015 LP Blurryface was the first album of the digital era to achieve this feat back in 2018, making the duo from Columbus, Ohio, the first artist [or] group with two albums to reach this landmark achievement. Vessel and Blurryface share a combined eight billion on-demand audio streams worldwide."
Of Vessel's songs, "Car Radio" is 2X Platinum, "Holding on to You" Platinum, "House of Gold" Platinum, "Migraine" Platinum, "Ode To Sleep" Gold, "Guns for Hands" Gold, "Fake You Out" Gold, "Semi-Automatic" Gold, "Trees" Gold, "Screen" Gold, "The Run and Go" Gold, and now, "Truce" also Gold.
The Vessel album itself was certified RIAA Platinum in February. Twenty One Pilots continue their "Bandito Tour" this fall in the U.S. See the dates below.
