On December 28, House of Heroes played their first show in two years– and they had a special guest.
House of Heroes was playing in their place of origin, Columbus, OH, to mark the ten year anniversary of their milestone album The End Is Not the End. During the encore, former House of Heroes drummer (and currently of twenty one pilots fame) Josh Dun took the stage with his former bandmates. Dun posted about it on his social media accounts, news that was quickly picked up by outlets like Alternative Press.
The drummer posted the above clips in his Instagram story, sharing clips from his vantage point in the crowd before he ended up on the drum kit.
Josh Dun was a part of House of Heroes in 2010, playing drums on stage and on the album Suburba. He would move on to join fellow Ohio native Tyler Joseph in his passion project twenty one pilots– a project that quickly captured the world with tunes like “Stressed Out” and more recently “Jumpsuit.”
The appearance with his former bandmates capped off a major end of the year high for Dun. Earlier this month, he announced his engagement. Shortly before that, twenty one pilots snagged another Grammy nomination. All of this follows the release of Trench, one of the most lauded alt albums of the year.
