Twenty One Pilots sent fans into a frenzy late last night with their most recent update to the DEMA website—a distorted 8 second song clip that, within minutes of its release, almost broke the internet.

Last July, Twenty One Pilots announced their hiatus by posting assorted lyrics and a photo of a closing eye.

It’s been a very long and very quiet hiatus for the Clique, at least until the DEMA website was uncovered back in April. The website contained numerous cryptic posts, letters and file names scattered throughout the site, and the Clique immediately went to work deciphering the cryptic clues left by the dynamic duo.

While theories of the album’s release date began circulating, the clues slowly began to die out, leaving the Clique stuck at a dead end with nothing to do but wait.

Until now.

Last night, almost a year after the hiatus began, a distorted 8 second clip appeared on the DEMA website. Fans were quick to jump on the new clue, immediately getting to work on deciphering its meaning.

The file name for the distorted clip is listed as “_ _ n_ot_myo_nly_fri_en d” which sparked a new theory that actually makes a lot of sense.

It was also noticed that TOP deleted all the eye photos from their Facebook page, with the exception of the cover art. Reports were also made that Tyler liked, then unliked, a photo on Instagram.

The discovery was also made that two new TOP songs titled “Jumpsuit” and “Nico and the Niners” are now listed in two different music databases.

If that isn’t enough to give you hope that the hiatus could finally see its end, then head over to StubHub and search Twenty One Pilots. The search brings up one event, Lollapalooza Argentina 2019 which is set to take place in March.

While it’s a lot to take in, it should also come as no surprise within minutes of the discovery of the distorted clip, TOP began trending on Twitter.

Could the hiatus be over this Friday? What do you hear in the cryptic, distorted sound clip? Let us know your thoughts on this latest theory, below!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
