The rumor mill is heating up as the unveiling of Bring Me the Horizon's next chapter draws near. Earlier this month posters began surfacing in Europe, and later in the States, that asked the question, "Do you wanna start a cult with me?" along with a phone number to call. Those who called the number were met with an unsettling recording, which said, "Welcome to Mantra. Daniel speaking. Could I take your earth name please?" After a brief pause, Daniel continued: "Your journey with Mantra begins now and I'm pleased to be able to share the begin of your enlightenment with..." Eventually a snippet of what is assumed to be new Bring Me the Horizon music was played.

There was also a website, joinmantra.org, which teased the date of Tuesday, Aug. 21. As the date has drawn closer, fans have managed to dig up more bits of information as to what exactly is coming. Perhaps what is most intriguing thus far is a Reddit post that surfaced a few hours ago which features what looks to be artwork for either Bring Me's new album or single. The post, which you can see below, is simply the image with no caption or context.

A new teaser has also surfaced, which features additional clips of what is assumed to be new music from the band.

On top of all that, it would seem that a potential tour date has leaked. There is also discussion that the band may play a "secret" set at this weekend's Reading Festival, which they have performed at multiple times in recent years.

We will bring you further details on Bring Me's next chapter as soon as they're available.
