Even though twenty one pilots are touring in support of last year’s release Trench, the band’s prior releases are still getting love years after release.
Vessel was the duo’s third studio album, and by all accounts, millions of plays, and over six years later, the album is now reaching a rare RIAA milestone.
Why? Well recently the duo’s final track of Vessel, “Truce,” was certified Gold. With that, this now means that every track on the album has now been dubbed Gold or Platinum.
For fans, this is a fitting end for a scheme they had come up with to push the pair into the record books back in February.
It was a group of Redditors that started the Fake You Out Project a few months back, with a view to urge others into promoting the song.
It worked. Of course, it’s a huge honor for the duo, but it’s now a record-breaking one.
2015’s Blurryface also had every track on it reach the same milestone, so with Vessel‘s certification, it makes twenty one pilots the first group or artist to have every song from two separate albums certified gold or silver.
Blurryface was the first album from this era to have every track go gold or platinum and now so hasVessel. Pretty darn we’d say.
Hat’s off to you gentlemen.
