The band posted a meme of the “confused anime guy” on their Instagram with their iconic logo replacing the butterfly and the words “A Reunion?” emblazoned across it. They also encouraged fans to sign up for their mailing list, hinting that something exciting is on the horizon.
Adding fuel to the speculation, Catherine Wheel shared an image on Instagram featuring their logo, the words “It’s Time,” and two dates, April 18 and May 30. Curiously, the post included the number 8365 as the only text in the description.
