Fans are trying to decipher an email received from the musical duo on Friday that included a GIF of a closing yellow eye with the subject “ARE YOU STILL SLEEPING?” The email arrived exactly one year after the band announced its hiatus with a similar GIF of a closing eye.
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. Twenty One Pilots' last album, Blurryface, was released in 2015.
