I think throughout the day; there are always lines or certain words, and I’ll just keep notes in my phone. It might just be one or two words, and then that could inspire a whole song, lyrically. — Tyler Joseph

It’s a funny thing. I’ll be in my home town of Columbus at a restaurant or something, and the waiter maybe asks, ‘What do you do?’ and I say, ‘Oh, I’m in a band… Twenty One Pilots,’ and he’ll say, ‘Cool, I’ll check it out. I never heard of them.’ And then I say, ‘In September we’re playing the Schottenstein Center,’ and it’s like, ‘What?!’ — Tyler Joseph

We come from a sensory-overload culture, and so we wonder if one guy on drums and one guy dancing around is enough. Adding guys was something we always were curious about. We decided for this run specifically to stay a two-piece. In the future, we definitely could add members. — Tyler Joseph

When you write music that expresses doubt or concern, or talks about some of the darker things that a developing human goes through, people will come out of the woodwork to listen to someone else say it out loud. — Tyler Joseph

When Josh and I are recording a record, we’re very mindful of how the music will manifest itself live. That’s where we have to live every day. When we tour for the next record, I imagine there will be a new story to tell, and we’ll introduce new characters. — Tyler Joseph

I don’t love the way I look. Nobody does, and if they do, I don’t want to be that person’s friend. But we all know what we’re insecure about. The question I had as I was writing was, ‘How are these things affecting the way I live? How am I compensating because I don’t like this about myself? What do I do to cover it up?’ — Tyler Joseph

We’ve done that whole spectrum of different varieties of shows, and we’ve figured out the best way of capturing the audience and taking them to a place where they will have an experience that they will never forget, whether they don’t like it, or they actually resonate with what we’re trying to do. — Tyler Joseph

Sometimes you go to a show, and you see someone and think they’re not there right now. They’re performing, but it’s muscle memory. There is no memorising some of the ways we put on a show. — Tyler Joseph

You have to give them something where they walk away and say, ‘I want more of that.’ To create something like that, you have to take them on a journey. So the live show is very important to us; we’ve been working on that a lot. — Tyler Joseph

When you play a show or festival, people know what they’re getting; they want it. Then you’re thrown onto a show where people are watching TV in their houses, and whether they ask for it or not, we’re being played in front of them. There’s a lot of negative feedback. — Tyler Joseph

We have to be aware. We are forced to be aware. — Tyler Joseph

There are times when we look back and think, ‘Do you remember when we had to lug a piano downstairs to a basement of some venue to play for five people?’ We do a lot of reminiscing. It helps us keep our heads on straight. — Tyler Joseph

Writing songs is kind of like a wrestling match to me. You have to pin it down and make it do what you want it to do. — Tyler Joseph

Self-awareness is a character trait that’s horrible to have if you’re a performer. I think that a lot of these performers that we see get up on stage and play music, there’s a sense of them truly not caring how they’re coming across. They are just themselves. I look up to a lot of people who are like that. — Tyler Joseph

From the beginning, my songwriting was from writing in a journal; it was completely unfiltered.

A lot of bands have an unfortunate past; we’ve dodged a lot of bullets when it comes to that. — Tyler Joseph

We’ve been lucky. Even as a young, local-level band, we were able to rise out of the local scene without having any debt, without having signed the wrong deal with the wrong manager or the wrong booker or a small label. — Tyler Joseph

I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be in one place for more than a day… But we signed up for this. This is our dream. We sat down and said this is what we want to do, play music and touring. — Tyler Joseph

We just want to outdo ourselves every time we come back somewhere. — Tyler Joseph
