Teasing – a little more … Bri

The video then ends on the words “announcement coming,” followed by the time and date of 4 PM PDT / 7 PM EDT today (20 August) or midnight tonight for BST.

It marks the first major activity from the band since May suffered a heart attack earlier this year. What the band are teasing, we’ll have to see – given the current delay to pretty much all touring, it could be an announcement for a trek sometime next year, or the footage in the short teaser could be from a longer concert film.
