Gorillaz are definitely up to something, that much we know.
The animated act have been tickling our collective pickle with a slew of mysterious teasers and cryptic hints about their imminent comeback plans, after activating a brand new Instagram account last week.
But now, one savvy Redditor has dug up an unexpected easter egg in the band’s newly relaunched website.
The individual – who is clearly a jedi master of the HTML – had a peek into the site’s source code, and found was a newly minted tour dates page.
“Found on the website. Live shows confirmed?” the charmingly-named user “ZombieFleshEater” posted on the Reddits.
“The fact the website has a live tour page does hint there is a strong probability Gorillaz will play shows again in the future,” he or she explained in the post’s comments section.
“More than a probability – that pretty much directly says there are plans,” another user replied.
“I’M ALL OVER THIS SHIT! Throws wads of cash at screen” posted another.
We already know that Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn‘s toon rock project have a new album due out next year, which is packing collabs with Vic Mensa as well as Snoop Dogg and De La Soul and may even feature rejected Adele songs, according to a recent interview Albarn did with UK’s The List.
And now it looks a helluva lot like tour dates are going to follow.
“We’ll be touring and doing festivals,” Albarn revealed to the mag.
Did someone say Splendour In The Grass 2017?
Either way, all of Gorillaz’ cryptic clues seem to be building to come kind of imminent announcement, so you can bet your bag of sunshine that we’ll know more soon. The future is coming on.
