In March 2015, Twenty One Pilots' first music since Vessel, was released. On May 17, 2015 the full 14 track album, Blurryface, was released globally. This album enjoyed mainstream success and was a breakout hit for the band, spawning several Billboard Hot 100 hits and eventually becoming the first album to receive RIAA certification for every track. The band released a further five tracks as singles. In August 2016, a song recorded for the movie Suicide Squad was released and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. This song was later rereleased on a single disc in a special repackaging of the album Blurryface. In September 2016, the band released a cover of the My Chemical Romance song, "Cancer", recorded especially for a 10th Anniversary album of covers for the album The Black Parade. In November 2016, a special three picture disc vinyl, Blurryface Live, was released. This was the last new music the band would release until 2018.
