It also contains the Billboard Hot 100 top-five singles, "Stressed Out" and "Ride", which reached numbers two and five on the chart, respectively. The album has sold over 1.5 million copies in the United States as of April 2017.[10] It was the eighth best-selling album of 2016 with over 1.5 million copies sold worldwide that year, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.[11]

In 2018, Blurryface became the first album in history to have every track receive at least a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.[12][13]

Background and recording[edit]

Following the release of their third album Vessel (2013), the band toured extensively in support of the album worldwide.[14] While on tour the band had a portable recording studio that allowed them to lay down ideas.[15]

"Heavydirtysoul", "Fairly Local", "Tear in My Heart", "Lane Boy" and "Doubt" were recorded with producer Ricky Reed at Serenity West Recording in Hollywood, California. "Stressed Out", "Polarize", "Hometown" and "Not Today" were recorded with producer Mike Elizondo at Can Am in Tarzana, California. "Ride" was recorded with Reed at Sonic Lounge Studios in Grove City, Ohio. "The Judge" was recorded with producer Mike Crossey at Livingston Studios in London. "We Don't Believe What's on TV" and "Goner" were recorded with Reed at Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. "Message Man" was recorded with Tim Anderson at Werewolf Heart in Los Angeles, California. The album was mixed by Neal Avron, with assistance from Scott Skrzynski, at The Casita in Hollywood, California. The album was mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound in New York City.[16]

Title and artwork[edit]

The album is named after a character the band created called Blurryface. According to Joseph, he "represents all the things that I as an individual, but also everyone around, are insecure about."[17] Joseph wears black paint on his hands and neck during his live shows and music videos for the album, to represent Blurryface, saying: "Very dramatic, I know, but it helps me get into that character."[18]

Art direction and design was done by Brandon Rike, Reel Bear Media and Virgilio Tzaj.[16] Rob Gold was the art manager, while Josh Skubel was in charge of packaging production.[16] Jabari Jacobs provided photography.[16] Rike mentions on his blog about the different feel of the artwork from Vessel and how the red on Blurryface is "the color of passion, violence, and anger", although the band is famous for their content being open to interpretation.[19]

Release[edit]

On March 17, 2015, the band announced the album's title, track listing and release date.[20] The band's fans crashed their website attempting to pre-order the album.[21] The band released their new single "Fairly Local" on the same day accompanied by its music video which premiered on the official Fueled by Ramen YouTube channel.[22] On February 3, 2017, the band released the music video for "Heavydirtysoul", which was uploaded as audio only in 2015, but released as a single on December 9, 2016.[23]

On April 6, the band released the second single of the album, "Tear in My Heart", with an official music video released through YouTube.[24] "Tear in My Heart" was released to radio on April 14, 2015.[25] The third single, "Stressed Out", was released on April 28[26][27] with a music video.[28] On May 4, 2015, the band posted a YouTube video streaming the audio of the album's 6th track, "Lane Boy",[29] and released "Ride" seven days later through the same media;[30] both were also singles, being released on the 4th and 12th, respectively.[31][32] Between the 11th and the 14th the band toured the UK.[33] The music video for "Ride" was released on May 14,[34] directed by Reel Bear Media.[35]

On May 19, 2015, the duo performed at the iHeartRadio Theater LA in Burbank, CA to celebrate the album's release.[36] The concert was livestreamed on iHeartRadio's website.

Sputnikmusic and Alternative Press gave Blurryface favorable reviews, with the latter being the more positive. Their critic, Jason Pettigrew, described the album as "wonderful" and hailed the band's mix of genres in their songs, highlighting "Ride", "Polarize", "Message Man", "Tear in My Heart", "We Don't Believe What's on TV", "Goner" and "Lane Boy" in his review.[39]

The album was ranked at number one in Alternative Press's "10 Essential Records of 2015" list.[3] Jason Pettigrew of Alternative Press wrote that the band combined "hip-hop vistas, tinges of reggae, everyman pop, furious electronic urgency and bellicose sadness into an impossibly cohesive record".[3] The album was included at number 2 on Rock Sound's top 50 releases of 2015 list.[43] Blurryface was nominated for "Album Of The Year" at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards.[44] The album also won the category of "Top Rock Album" at the Billboard Music Awards.[45]

As of July 2018, the album has sold 378,710 copies in the United Kingdom and 6.5 million copies worldwide. [58]
