UPDATED: Twenty One Pilots Join The Suicide Squad With New Cut “Heathens”

Screen Shot 2016-06-17 at 9.01.05 AM

Their hometown might be in the dark, but schizoid pop heroes Twenty One Pilots have shun some light on the world for those yearning for some new downbeat jams. After a sneaky Reddit leak and some misguided hype from an unofficial Twitter account (remember, Clique, @blurryface is the only legit one), the Ohio duo have unveiled their first tune in over a year – “Heathens”.

The cut comes as Twenty One Pilots’ contribution to the Suicide Squad soundtrack: a collaboration that’s been hyped to the rafters since it was teased last month in a Billboard feature. Clocking in at 3-minutes of muggy, gritty pop with synth drums and an R&B-esque hook, it’s a fitting throw into the fold. In addition to “Heathens”, the Suicide Squad soundtrack features a couple of other choice (if questionable) cuts, including a song that confirms Creedence Clearwater Revival are apparently still a thing, and a studio cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” tackled by baroque pop king Panic! At The Disco.

Elsewhere in Twenty One Pilots’ ever-growing schedule, the band are currently underway with the Emotional Roadshow world tour. They’ll be bringing it Down Under in all of its strobe-heavy, hamster ball-ish glory next March, making their Australian arena debut after a string of theatre shows back in April that sold out within hours.

UPDATE 22/06/16: After almost a week of delays, the official music video for “Heathens” has been released. Interspersing footage of Suicide Squad with a grim – though, in a way, oddly uplifting – narrative of the duo in prison, it’s certainly one of Twenty One Pilots’ more interesting clips.
