The group recently continued to tease their return by sending mysterious postcards to their fans.

The band have recently spent time in Los Angeles recording the follow album to 2015 debut album ‘My Love Is Cool‘. The record reached Number Two in the Official UK Albums Chart and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and the Grammys.

 Fans have been posting images on Twitter of the postcards, which have been sent from fictional places such as “St. Purple & Green” and “After The Zero Hour”. As DIY reports, each card has a cryptic message on the back, which read like song lyrics.

One Twitter user posted a photo of a postcard that reads: “A transcendent invitation to the zero hour”. Another has the inscription “Who hurt you sadboy?”
