Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Beginning last week, Milwaukee emo band the Promise Ring made its mysterious return to the internet by way of Twitter.

A week after posting the equivocal "Hello, again..." status, the band released a 34-second video titled "It's All Coming Back to Me Part 1." The cryptic video contains clips of a drive through a small unnamed town with fuzzy lo-fi music playing in the background. In addition to a few odd tweets and the video, the band has started using the hashtag "#tpr2012." Both Dan Didier and Davey Von Bohlen  have also tweeted, encouraging fans to follow the band's Twitter (@ThePromiseRing) account.

The Promise Ring originally disbanded in 2002 but reunited for a

one-off performance in 2005. Is this a sign that something big is coming from the band in 2012?

Watch the teaser video below.
