Twenty One Pilots Ask Fans To Call Strange Number, Solve Coded Website

After sending fans into panic mode with a cryptic post earlier this week, twenty one pilots have finally revealed…. another cryptic AF video.
The band first shared a cryptic video on its socials with its new single “Level of Concern” playing in the new clip with the code "LOC-061-220-2012P" scrawled across the screen on Wednesday. On Twitter, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun linked fans to a livestream that went live today (June 12).
During the livestream, a television played a series of strange videos and flashed the number 1-877-LVL-CNRN across the screen. Fans were also prompted to visit a new website that features the same visuals as the live but asks for fans to enter a code. If you have been paying close attention to the video, the symbols featured on the website have been flashing across the TV screen as well.
The first code for fans who are confused is: LOC-491-555-09JKL. Once entered, this will prompt you to download a zip file containing photos of Tyler and Josh as well as audio saying, “Level 1.” There are 19 more codes to break so best of luck!
About 13 minutes into the livestream a voice says “Welcome To Level Of Concern… want to play a game? Anxiety, confusion, excitement, anxiety, anxiety, confusion, excitement, anxiety, confusion, excitement, anxiety, confusion, excitement... you are most likely experiencing Level Of Concern we thank you for your participation and interest.”
At the time of publishing, the stream was still live and the phone line was so backed up that many people couldn't get through. It may be safe to say that the guys are teasing their next era as they haven't been shy letting fans know they've been working on new music.
In an interview last month, Tyler Joseph said that he and Josh Dun were busy working on the followup to Trench. “I’m not sure when it’ll be released," he said, "but it’s definitely going to be sooner than we were planning on releasing a record.”
