After months of silence, Twenty One Pilots surprised fans this morning (July 6) with an email featuring a gif of a closing yellow eye with the subject, "ARE YOU STILL SLEEPING?'
As expected, the email quickly made its way around social media platforms, igniting the band's devoted fan base, known as The Skeleton Clique.
The email comes exactly one year after the band's hiatus, which they announced through a similar gif of a closing eye, leading to speculations that this is the end of the hiatus and the beginning of a new album cycle.
The band has not announced any plans for new music and a spokesperson could not be reached for additional comment at press time.
Those who received the email are subscribers of the band's newsletter.
