Twenty One Pilots score debut No.1

Twenty One Pilots have scored their first-ever number 1 hit in the US.

Their fourth album Blurryface topped the Billboard 200 chart this week, selling a total of 146,000 during its first seven days on sale.

Previous outing Vessel reached number 58, although the chart firm say its sales have remained consistent since its 2013 launch.

Ohio duo Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun say: “We created Blurryface for you – 14 songs that you accepted and embraced. This is your album. Thank you for putting it on top. Stay strong. Live on. Pass on these songs.”

Nov 04: Glasgow O2 ABC

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
