Twenty One Pilots have released a limited edition 10-year anniversary vinyl boxset for Vessel.
GRAMMY® Award winning duo Twenty One Pilots celebrate a decade of their seminal multiplatinum Fueled By Ramen debut album with the release of the Vessel 10 Year Anniversary Limited Edition Boxset. The limited one-time pressing includes a stunning candy-style deluxe box set housing a double-LP (140g) with printed sleeves and tri-fold jackets as well as a lenticular insert and faux-Polaroid photos. Side A and Side B comprised the original album tracklisting. Side C includes four showstopping live songs recorded Live At The LC during a rapturous hometown gig at The LC Pavilion in Columbus, OH. Meanwhile, Side D includes songs initially released on the independent favorite Regional At Best:
“forest,” “glowing eyes,” “kitchen sink,” and “lovely”
To accompany the Vessel 10 Year Anniversary Limited Edition Boxset, Twenty One Pilots have unveiled a new Vessel 10 Year merch collection. Inspired by the album artwork and era of the band’s history, the drop consists of t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts. The capsule is available now on the band's official store for fans to shop.
The band celebrated the anniversary yesterday, January 8th (10 years to the exact date of Vessel’s initial release) with a special three hour 10th Anniversary Variety Stream live on YouTube where the band revisited archived never before seen footage, shared memories, and entertained fans with games and spontaneous ukulele performances of tracks from the Vessel era –

Vessel marked a monumental moment in the trajectory of Twenty One Pilots. All of the original edition’s tracks achieved at least a Gold certification from the RIAA, later enshrining them as “the first group or artist to achieve this feat with two separate albums.” Among many standouts, it boasted the double-platinum “Car Radio,” platinum “House of Gold,” and more. In retrospect,
KERRANG! placed it at #1 when ranking their albums thus far, hailing it as “pretty damn faultless”and attesting, “It’s no wonder that Twenty One Pilots have gone on to have one of the most fiercely dedicated, passionate fanbases on the planet.” Rating it “4.5-out-of-5 stars” upon initial arrival, Alternative Press declared, “their songs just signed a long-term lease in your brain.” It codified their signature genre alchemy, weaving together alternative, electronic, hip-hop, rock, and indie into the soundtrack for the future.
