Twenty One Pilots recently released a video for “Backslide,” the third single from their upcoming album Clancy.

The video, which marks the directorial debut of drummer Josh Dun, shows Tyler Joseph, dressed in black pants and a bomber jacket and t-shirt, riding around town on his red and black BMX bike.

In the visual, Joseph stops at a convenience store and dumps an empty plastic bag into a garbage can and buys a bag of hamburger buns.

He is then seen riding down a suburban street with the buns hanging from his right hand as he rap/sings, “Rat race, place to place, adding weight/ Tendencies on repeat, innit?/ Benefit from a shoe with no lace/ Take the seat with the crease in it.”

He takes a bite and then tosses it aside to sing the chorus: “I don’t wanna backslide to where I started from/ There’s no chance I will shake this again/ ‘Cause I feel the pull, water’s over my head/ Strength enough for one more time.”

Joseph ends his ride, pulling up to Dun’s house as the drummer flips burgers on a grill, only to realize he’s out of buns and has to return to the store to get another bag as the visual swallows its own tail and goes back to the beginning.
