With news that Skrillex has a new album ready to drop an minute, fans have started to speculate next week may see new Skrillex music.
After a break from the stage, Skrillex has begun playing shows more regularly again. After a few stops in Asia, and confirming two New Year’s Eve performances and his upcoming tour down under with Listen Out, Skrillex has headed out to the Playa to both enjoy and play Burning Man.
Today Skrillex uploaded a photo to Instagram of him biking on the Playa with the seemingly innocuous caption, “I’ll be back next week”. While this could obviously mean that Skrillex is just letting everyone know he will be at Burning Man until next week, fans on YouTube and Reddit believe it means something deeper. Fans are speculating a mid-year release similar to the debut release from Skrillex’s project with Boys Noize title Dog Blood.
Does this mean an announcement surrounding new music is hitting the web next week? Is it simply an announcement saying that he is unplugging for the next few days? Nobody can be sure, but just like anything involving Skrillex – the hype is incredibly real.
Australians can expect to hear new Skrillex material later this year when he tours as part of the Listen Out festivals.
