The duo has performed on late night national television before, including a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. However, this will be the first time that they take to the SNL stage.
Twenty One Pilots recently made history by becoming the first alternative group ever with two simultaneous singles in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 – “Ride,” from their multi-platinum studio album “Blurryface,” and “Heathens”.
Saturday Night Live returns October 1 with host Margot Robbie and musical guest The Weekend.
