Twenty One Pilots Sign To Fueled By Ramen Records
You can check out an excerpt from the feature below.
"Alive: How did you end up signing a record contract?
Joseph: Last time we played Columbus, we played at Newport. And we ended up selling that show out, which we didn’t anticipate. Turns out, when you sell out a venue like that, it gets to more than just people who are in Ohio. And people from the music industry got wind of that somehow.
Joseph: So we decided to go with Fueled By Ramen. Our partner is going to be them. We’ve been working with them for the past few months, just getting ready for that announcement on their end and on our end.
Dun: And the big thing, I think really one of the biggest factors in the decision is that they’re one of the labels that really allow a lot of creative control, that we’re allowed to maintain. Which is something that I’d like to reiterate just because that is one thing that people fear, that ideas or vision that we had might be stripped away just because of things that the label has said or done or discouraged. And so far that hasn’t been the case at all. There’s a great artistic connection between us and them.
Alive: I understand the day after the show you’re leaving to work on the album?
Joseph: Yes. Saturday’s the show, and then Sunday, April 29, we are getting on a plane and we’re going out to L.A. We’re working with a producer out there by the name of Greg Wells. And working on our first national release, I guess is what you would call it."
