Twenty One Pilots drummer Josh Dun makes his directorial debut in the just-released video for their song, “Backslide” off their upcoming album, Clancy.  

Backslide is the follow-up to the previously-released singles ‘Overcompensate’ and ‘Next Semester,’ and the visual finds singer Tyler Joseph tooling around town on his red and black BMX bike in what appears to be a Groundhog Day-type scenario.  The video also features throwbacks to other moments in the duo’s discography including the bike riding in ‘Stressed Out’, their mascot Ned from the ‘Chlorine’ video, and more.

Last week in a message to fans, frontman Tyler Joseph confirmed that the album’s release would be moving back a week to May 24 in order to allow them to make a music video for every song on the record.  Said Joseph: “When I first told Josh [Dun] and Mark [Eshleman] and everyone on our team that I wanted to do a music video for every song on the album ‘Clancy’ that’s coming up, I told them it’s because I love these songs and I believe in them enough to pretend to sing in front of a camera to each one. And that’s what we’re going to do, because that’s how I want to present this album. But because of that, in order to accomplish that, we need a little bit more time – that’s why I’m making this video. We’re going to push the album back by one week, to May 24th.”
