DC Talk post a picture, internet loses mind

UPDATE!! A few new posts (including one from TobyMac) confirm that something is going on - and we'll find out on May 11 (US Time). Watch this space!

dc Talk's Facebook account posted a picture on May 3 simply of the stylized word "2017."

Nothing else was posted along with the picture, but it lead to immediate and passionate fan speculation as to what this could mean.

In 5 hours (at the time of writing this) it'd been shared more than 3000 times, and there's so many exclamation points in the comments... so many...

What do you think it means?? Guess we're all waiting 8 months to find out!
