Ok, so you’ve got your tickets and you’re all set to (finally) witness Twenty One Pilots explode before your very eyes.

You’ve watched every shaky recording of Joshua Dun flinging his half naked torso in an impressive 240⁰ loop.

Heck, you’re even brazenly responsible for several pieces of fan art that occasionally pile up on Tyler Joseph’s Instagram account.

You are the ULTIMATE 21P fan with your own covert lingo (“Stay street!”), paired with an unconditional love for ski masks and black paint that knows no bounds (inviting quizzical looks from time to time).

Do the above describe you perfectly? Are you thirsty for some M&G action with the dynamic duo themselves? ‘Course you are, and we’re here to help your dreams take flight.

In the same vein of TOP’s aesthetic, Spin or Bin Music is all about encouraging art in its many forms. Seeing that Tyler is pretty much a magician with words and Josh’s videography skills are Internet-famous, all you have to do is either a) pen a haiku b) record a Vine video to stand a chance to meet them!

Here are the deets:

Haiku (1 Winner):

1.      /ˈhʌɪkuː/: A Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five.

2.      Tweet us your quirky (English) haiku expressing anything in relation to Twenty One Pilots. Tag it with #SpinorBinMusicx21P and a picture of your tickets/ proof of purchase.

Vine (2 winners)

1.      Through the use of Vine, present to us six seconds worth of passion (with your tickets/ proof of purchase clearly visible) as to why YOU should win the meet & greet passes to hang with Twenty One Pilots. Bewilder us in whatever dramatic ways you prefer.

2.      After your work of art has been successfully uploaded to Vine, you will be required to share the clip on your Twitter account along with the mandatory hashtag, #SpinorBinMusicx21P to be eligible.

Power to the local dreamer! |-/

From Josh Dun’s active array of entertaining Vines to a unique set of jargon developed very organically, the relationship between Twenty One Pilots and their “core fan base” aka the skeletøn clique is rivalled by few other musicians. Reportedly, it was frontman Tyler Joseph’s very own alter ego, Blurryface, who leaked the duo’s latest record with the same name.

Given such an intractable bond, we can only hope to facilitate a similar sense of camaraderie by passing on 5 pairs of tickets to TOP’s upcoming Blurryface World Tour stop in Singapore! Happening in less than a month at the Suntec Convention Centre, this will be the first ever 21P gig here, so you do NOT want to be the one who regrets not getting tickets only posthumously.

Most importantly, we are giving away the coveted MEET & GREET passes to ticket holders next week! So grab your tickets ASAP!

It’s been four years since Florence + the Machine released 2011’s Ceremonial. After a massive tour, and experiencing “a bit of a nervous breakdown”, frontwoman Florence Welch describes the rock band’s latest album – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful – as her most personal record to date.

“I’m quite shy, really -- that’s probably why I used to drink a lot. But I don’t anymore. When I finally took time off to make this new record, I had time to strengthen. And when I was coming back into the fray, I really didn’t want to lose that,” the 28 year old singer told Billboard.

Reacquainting herself with reality has given Welch a new sense of purpose. The songs on the third album is about “trying to learn how to live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it”.

To prove just how big, how blue, how beautiful they are, the good people at Universal Music have shuffled three sets of Florence + the Machine black t-shirts and badges for us to give to you!

Do all of these 2 simple steps below and you’ll be popped into the draw to win one set!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “! Gimme a set of Florence + the Machine's 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' tee and badges now! "

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is available on iTunes and all physical stores now.
