It's the question on everybody's lips: when are Twenty One Pilots going to release their new single?

The band, who have been on hiatus for a year since bringing an end to the Blurryface era, are set to release their fifth studio album this year and they've been indirectly teasing their return for months via the mysterious website. Things stepped up a notch yesterday (July 9) when the band updated all their digital platforms with a new logo and yellow visuals. This coincided with billboards featuring the same visuals in several locations around the world as well as their first tweet in over a year - a GIF of an eye with a video of fire and a horse (?!?) playing inside it.

While there is a lot going on (head over here if you need a catch up), there is still no official confirmation of when we will hear new music. That was until Sirius XM in the USA accidentally spilled the tea LIVE ON AIR during a news bulletin.

In a video captured by fan account New_Era_News, during a news item about the return of the band, the reporter says at the end, "Fans are going to happy to know though that's all paying off soon. Their brand new song is due out this Thursday."

We are screaming!

There have been two misleading reports from radio stations about the return of TØP in the last week, so we'd take this news with a pitch of salt, however Sirius are a reputable station with top level connections within the music industry, so if anyone is going to know when the song is going to drop, it will be them (and no - we don't know either!)

Now that this is public knowledge, the band might change their mind on the date to keep an element of surprise about the drop, but this should put to bed any theories that the band are just trolling fans. Yes, TØP are coming back and it's going to be sooner than you think.
