This seems like the most realistic answer.

I’m still waiting for a theory on why they would make this announcement in Tokyo and not Mumbai. Maybe it’s something date-specific or city-specific?

Forget Lovetown, they’re going to do a 10.5 year anniversary mini-set of No Line songs. Who’s ready to go CRAZY TONIGHT??

The mysterious imagery suggests it will be something to do with new music. Maybe a new song that they proceed to play.


Called Ahimsa.

Now just on Facebook.

My wildest theory: Songs of Ascent will drop at the end of the week.

This must be new music right?

They released SOE two years ago, nearly to the day... Its not beyond the realms os possibility that they have recorded new stuff in relative secret...

Optimistically excited.
That's what I hope for. SOA is being worked on for ages . Good possibility they worked secretly on the songs to complete the trilogy. Ahimsa is a good sign to that.

They’ve now sent out an email to members. This isn’t bad news. And it isn’t small.

Announcement from stage Dec 4th 7am est

If it was some sort of a retirement announcement then there wouldn’t be artwork for it .

Maybe it’s the pride Calvin Harris Remix :-)

That's my wildest theory/hope too.

Just release some music, no need to tour, then they can go away and work on new stuff with zero pressure about being out of the public eye for a while.

Lines have been set

EP release - 2 to 1
Songs of Ascent release - 8 to 1
New Tour for 2020 - 15 to 1
Announcement of retirement but combined with one last tour and possibly an EP - 50 to 1
Straight retirement - 100 to 1
They're changing their name to X2 to be hipper and cooler with the youngs - even money

Funnily enough I was thinking its about time for a Best Of for the next decade or so, but no way they announce that in this sort of a way.

Where are the nerds when you need them? If this was something relating to Apple we'd have people scraping URLs on websites looking for clues and analysing everything they've said over the last 6 months.

What was Dallas' exact quote about new music btw?

So we have a big announcement... we'd just like everyone to know that we're adding a 5th member.

Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome Amp to the stage.

Commercial tie-in with Xerox photocopiers for the next tour?

An exciting collaboration with Madonna in her Madame X guise because that's what will really get the teenagers excited and make radio stations sit up and take notice?

An appearance on The X Factor?

A remix of Pride by X-Press 2, the British DJs?

Just a chance for them to highlight how good Larry's new haircut is?

The only thing we know for sure is that it could be something utterly brilliant and exciting, or something which will go down like a fart in a spacesuit.

There’s a countdown, just like rocket launches have countdowns, and ROCKETS ASCEND...
