this entire thing being part of dema's propaganda in such a subtle and yet so blatant way is SO clever
･ the title of the album being an anagram of "clancy is dead"
･ the string of numbers at the bottom of each pic (which is the same as the infraction number on dmaorg.info) also translating to "clancy is dead"
･ dema being literally written all over it (the symbol looking like the map of dema, the "a production by dmaorg" and "good day dema" logos, the writing at the bottom of each pic)
･ the emphasis on colours and saturation, which are the exact opposite of dema's grey, dark, monochromatic aesthetic
･ tøp's ||-// logo being nowhere on the promo pics, because in the narrative of trench it represents hope, which goes against everything the bishops, dema and vialism stand for
･ the blurryface twitter account being the only one who posted about the album, which suggests that tyler and josh are not in control of any of this, blurry/the bishops ARE and they're using them as a tool of their propaganda, to glorify clancy's death and paint dema and vialism in a positive light
the vibes of this entire thing are so off it almost feels fake and it's SUPPOSED to be like that, because this IS, in fact, fake. scaled and icy is not genuinely coming from tyler and josh themselves like the previous albums, it was made by DEMA and tyler and josh are merely a tool to promote blurry/the bishops' message. it's unnerving and scary and i LOVE it, this band is on a whole other level.
UPDATE: another clue that imo further confirms this theory is the wording they chose in their promotional tweets:
notice how they keep saying OUR new album, while in the past they've always said YOUR album (as this clikkie pointed out on twitter). also the tone of those tweets feels very impersonal, very professional, almost cold, almost as if it wasn't tyler or josh or mark who wrote them. the previous announcements felt warmer, as if they were announcing they were gonna give us a gift, as if they were saying "we made this album, but it's yours, it's for you", while this time it feels more like "WE(the bishops) made this album and it's ours and it's for our purpose(propaganda) only". and it's scary af.
ANOTHER ADDITION: the return (but not quite) of the vessel era skimasks in the shy away mv.
what i mean by this is: the masks do look very similar to the ones they used to wear during the vessel era, but are they really the same masks? imo, they're not.
the real skimasks from vessel era used to bring a sense of comfort to tyler and josh and they were a sort of protection, as we can see in the guns for hands mv
now look at the skimasks they wore in the shy away mv
they're full of holes, josh's one is so torn apart it barely covers half of his face. these are certainly not the same masks as the ones in the guns for hands mv. these are a fake, corrupted version of them. blurry/the bishops chose to bring back such an iconic symbol of one of tøp's past eras, for the sole purpose of giving us a false sense of familiarity and security, so they can lure us into their trap more easily.
(or perhaps the masks are just very old and i'm looking way too much into it, but you never know with this band ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
