Will Gorillaz be ringing in 2023 with some news?

In a mysterious tweet Friday, the virtual band teased, in all caps, “THE RUPTURE IS COMING,” alongside a photo featuring various drawings and references to the Gorillaz mythology.

One corner of the image includes the numbers 01.01.2023, perhaps hinting that some sort of announcement is coming on New Year’s Day.

Gorillaz is already gearing up for a big 2023 with the release of the upcoming album Cracker Island, due out February 24. The record includes guest spots by artists including Beck, Stevie Nicks, Tame Impala, Thundercat and Bad Bunny.

Meanwhile, Gorillaz recently premiered augmented reality-driven “immersive live performances” of the Cracker Island songs “Skinny Ape” in New York City and London. You can check out official footage of what that looked like in NYC, now streaming on YouTube.
