What We Know About Purple
This is so long omg, sry.
Disclaimer: STOP TELLING PETE YOU HATE HIM AND/OR WANT TO FIGHT HIM. HE HAS STATED THAT IT MAKES HIM FEEL AWFUL AND UNEASY BECAUSE HE USED TO GET INTO FIGHTS AS A KID!!!
He just wanted to do something exciting for the fans, respect that!!!
1. The announcement was made on the 1 year anniversary of Prince’s death.
2. The announcement was made in movie theaters across Chicago.
3. The initial release date for whatever is happening was on 4-28-17, but was moved up to 4-27-17, which is Patrick’s birthday.
4. Pete has previously stated that “someday we need to make the purple one” in regards to fob’s previous albums on Instagram.
5. Fob filmed a music video around two weeks ago, which was stated by a fan in the area who witnessed filming.
6. Pete backed this up through his now-deleted-tweet that said something like “this week was 😑and the next is😎” around the same time of the music videos filming. (I don’t remember the actual wording of the tweet, but it was something like that).
7. This now makes sense that the video he was talking about was probably either an actual music video or the teaser released yesterday.
8. Purple is probably an album because of all these previous statements above and the many hints both Pete and fob have dropped.
9. This is also the start of a new era, which is defined by the gif of a purple wave that is now of fobs official website and their new twitter layout.
10. Pete has a string of tweets that have the emoji 🔮, which is purple, and sound like lyrics. (Documentation of these are on this site somewhere)
11. The album is probably titled something like “young mania” or “young maniac” because of Petes current twitter name which is “yng mnc” with purple emojis in between.
12. The teaser for the movie theaters was also in a purple color wave and started off with the words “Mania Entertainment”. This is a music production company.
13. Late last year and into this one there was some drama about fob maybe leaving island, their current label to our knowledge, so maybe this is their new label? This is backed up by some of Pete’s tweets during late 2016 and early 2017.
14. If this is new music, it is probably a mixture of previous fob music styles with something new. This is because all of their previous albums have been red or blue, which switch every album cycle and red and blue mix to make purple.
15. They have a show scheduled in Brazil in September of this year.
16. It has to do with the ocean because of the theater teaser and the wave gif on fobs site.
17. DCD2, Pete’s record label, has been tweeting more actively lately. Idk if this means anything, but it would also add more credibility to the whole “leaving island thing”.
18. Island Records hasn’t tweeted anything about the fob news to my knowledge, so maybe they really did leave the label?!!?
19. I’ve seen some speculation on this site that this is their last album. This is because all of the previous albums fall into either a blue or red theme in order (tttyg-blue, futct-red, ioh-blue, fad-red, greatest hits bnd-blue, srar-red, abap-blue). Purple breaks this cycle and thus may be their big finale. All the hype going on alludes to this as well.
(If this last point is true I will die)
And lastly, whatever this is, I can’t wait. It’s definitely something new and I want to be supportive in any way I can 😊!
Thanks to anyone who read through this long post. It means a lot.
