Radiohead has erased its Internet presence, causing fans to speculate whether the strange move is a sign that the British rock band is about to release a new album.

The band’s website, Radiohead.com, now directs to a blank page, and all posts have been scrubbed from its associated social media pages. The band's Facebook page says only that it was established in 1985, and its Twitter account says only “@radiohead hasn’t tweeted yet.”

The band has a reputation for releasing albums in strange ways, leading many fans to hope a ninth album, The Daily Mail reported. Its last full-length album, “King of Limbs,” was released in 2011.

At the time, lead vocalist Thom Yorke handed out newspapers with a Radiohead theme. Prior to that release, the band invited fans to name their own price when downloading their 2007 album, “In Rainbows.”

On Saturday, Radiohead sent out postcards to U.K. fans that said, “Sing the song of sixpence that goes/Burn the Witch." The message ends with, “We know where you live.” The “burn the witch” lyric is part of a 13-year-old song that has never been released or performed in full, Rolling Stone noted.

The band is set to launch a tour on May 20 in Amsterdam.

Fan theories about an album release also are fueled by German lore, which places “Witches Night” on April 30 or May 1, Rolling Stone noted. The band also recently launched a company called Dawn Chorus LLP, and May 1 is International Dawn Chorus Day.

The band’s website was erased bit by bit during a four-hour period on Sunday, Fortune magazine reported, noting that “invisibility … is the new hype.”

Twitter users seemed enthralled by the strange move, with some fans posting theories about how the new album might be released.
