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

It was all brought into darkness with the lyrics: “AND NOW I JUST SIT IN SILENCE.”

Then, while accepting the award for Most Dedicated Fan Base at the 2017 APMAs, Twenty One Pilots drummer Josh Dun said frontman Tyler Joseph couldn’t be there because he was “severing ties with Dema.”

The word “Dema,” according to Wikipedia, means “tower of silence” in Iran, which fans are thinking links back to that earlier Tweet that showed the eye closing… If you know anything about Joseph, he steadfastly refuses to discuss anything about his music until it is done. Period. However, at the end of the interview for the duo’s last AP cover story (AP 342, January 2017), Joseph made a passing comment about his third major-label record, stating that Blurryface was “about a person. So that leaves ‘a place’ or ‘a thing.’ Probably ‘a place’?”

If you research Tower of Silence you'll find that it is a circular, raised structure where dead bodies were left to be exposed to vultures. And what did fans notice in the middle of this “grave”? An image that looks exactly like Blurryface with the words correlating to the album's tracks.

And now, it looks like we’re going to find out what this all means.

This weekend, fans dug in, pieced together clues and are theorizing that a new record is coming soon

They began noticing something suspicious was going down when people began posting images of TOP's Blurryface album being sold with the album art inserted upside down.

And then last night, the Skeleton Clique’s Instagram story linked to another Instagram account: @sarajsfish.

And @sarajsfish’s most recent post is a photo of Josh with the code: “•••••.•”

Decoded? Most people seem to think it means “5/1.” Fans are theorizing that could mean a new single or and announcement coming on May 1. 

This morning, fans noticed that searching certain keywords searched on the band's site would bring up interesting results. For example, if you search “July” the result says: “Friday alright which one of you admin fuckers Told them im dropping the album(43),Friday Alright who I one of you admin fuckers told them I'm dropping the album(43), Friday alright which one of you fuckers told them im dropping the album(43), Friday alright which one of you admin fuckers(43), friday july 13 silent ones(43)”

Does that mean we'll be getting a new album Friday, July 13?

We wanted to investigate further, so we began searching the band's site using keywords they've teased previously—Dema, Tower, Clancy, 43 (teased in the “July” search result) and more. Here's what came up:

And there’s this mysterious error code that fans have found: 15398642_14. 

If you search the code on YouTube, you get taken to a channel with short teaser videos that range from 2 seconds to 43 minutes. All of the videos were streamed live, and you can watch the ambiguously titled videos below. (The account is generated by Warner Music, which TOP's label Fueled By Ramen operates under, so while it’s not labeled as official, it seems very likely that it is…)

The Instagram account linked to in the last video is one with the username “14eillids.” The account currently has 12 posts, and the name is “AMEHTANA.” That name might not mean much, but when it’s reversed—like most of the text in the Instagram captions—it’s “Anathema,” which means “one who is cursed.”

The Instagram bio links to dmaorg.info, a website which sends you to an error code with a very cryptic message and violation code—but fans already discovered this.

Each of the 12 posts has a cryptic description, which we dissected below:
