Rumors about the new editions began circulating on Monday when it was learned that they had launched the GNR.FM site, which at the time featured the phrase “Destruction Is Coming” and links to their social media platforms with the hashtag “#APPETITEFORDESTRUCTION.” A day later, the site had been updated with a countdown clock, a clip of “Shadow of Your Love” and a world map with numerous cities lit. A billboard featuring the depictions of the five members from the album cover was also spotted in England.
