Twenty One Pilots have won everything from a Grammy and a Billboard Music Award to a VMA and a Kids’ Choice Award throughout their career. They’re even the first band to have every song on an album be RIAA certified. But now, they’ve finally achieved perhaps the most prestigious accolade in all of music.

We’re, of course, talking about being the Five Guys Featured Artist. Each month, the burger chain picks a musician to spotlight by playing their music in its restaurants. To celebrate the launch of the “Stressed Out” duo’s Icy tour, Five Guys named Twenty One Pilots the Featured Artist of August 2022.

The news reached the ears — and, presumably, taste buds — of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, who understandably tweeted, “What an honor.”

By the way, this isn’t the first time Twenty One Pilots have crossed paths with the culinary world. Last year, they teamed up with Chipotle to create a signature burrito.

Twenty One Pilots’ Icy tour launched Thursday in St. Paul, Minnesota, and is currently scheduled into September. The outing supports the new Twenty One Pilots album Scaled and Icy, which was released in May 2021.
