As if my excitement for the upcoming DC Comics film, Suicide Squad, wasn’t flying off the charts already, I recently found out that one of my all-time favorite bands – Twenty One Pilots – would be featuring a brand new song for the movie’s original soundtrack.
The featured track, titled Heathens, was “leaked” onto the deep depths of the interwebs just last week. “Heathens” has a dark melody and haunting lyrics – traits that aren’t uncharacteristic for the band. However, even for Twenty One Pilots, a band that notably writes dark-ish songs such as “Car Radio” and “Stressed Out,” the song was undeniably grim.
As soon as the song dropped, the Skeleton Clique (a nickname dubbed for the TOP fanbase) started making speculations about whether or not there would be more to the sudden release of this song than meets the eye. It turns out that they were right. The following day, news that the song will be featured on the Suicide Squad soundtrack was released, and the Clique went wild.
A few days after the big news, an official audio of the song was uploaded as well as the music video for the single. And let me tell you – the music video is amazing. I can gush about the music video all I want, but ultimately, you’re going to have to see for yourself.
Anyway, you know the drill. If you haven’t heard the song or watched the music video, check it out below! Whether you’re a fan of the comic, film, or band, I’m pretty darn sure you’ll like it.
