Twenty One Pilots are headed to MTV Unplugged.

The “Stressed Out” duo will perform on the iconic music series June 9. As a press release puts it, the special will feature Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun “tak[ing] the stage in Los Angeles to perform stripped-back and reimagined versions of some of their biggest and most beloved songs from their catalog.”

“I may have convinced [Dun] to sing harmonies with me for this one,” Joseph says.

The MTV Unplugged performance will follow the previously announced Twenty One Pilots Cinema Experience, an expanded, theatrical release of the band’s 2021 streaming concert celebrating the release of their new album, Scaled and Icy. The film will premiere May 19.

If that’s still not enough Twenty One Pilots for you, you can catch their U.S. Icy tour, launching in August.
