Performing at last week's Firefly Festival in the US, Twenty One Pilots took some time out of their set to wish drummer Josh Dun a happy birthday (June 18 for those of you playing along at home), and also to get Tyler's Dad out on stage for a special performance.
Check out the video below, and try not to picture your Dad doing that!!
I mean sure, it's not Father's Day here in NZ till September, but we can still enjoy the US celebrations! Especially if they include new tunes from Owl City.
Check out "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" - a special tribute to Adam Young's Dad. Sidenote: this acoustic video was filmed in Randy Young's (as in Adam's Dad's) workshop.
It's called 'Weep With Me', and Rend Collective have written: "We felt it was fitting to let you hear this lament we've written today. We can't make the pain go away. We refuse to provide cheap, shallow answers. But hopefully this song can give us some vocabulary to bring our raw, open wounds before the wounded healer, who weeps with us in our distress. We pray that we can begin to raise a costly, honest and broken hallelujah. That is what it means to worship in Spirit and in Truth."
Mutemath have announced a new album coming later this year titled Play Dead, and they've dropped the first new single, "Hit Parade".
I use the word "new" kind of loosely, in that Paul Meany posted on twitter the band had been tweaking it here and there live for awhile.
No official word yet on the release date for the album, but as always, we'll keep you posted.
If you're a worship leader at church, or just want to learn how to play the new songs from United, this is a great day for you.
The guys in the band stopped by the New Song Cafe (run by Worship Together) to play some of their new songs, talk about the story behind the songs, and teach viewers how to play the songs - there's even links to chord charts and lyrics.
