Gorillaz's Noodle Opens (Quickly Closes) OKCupid Profile & Is Quite A Tease

Gorillaz are a band that know how to use every creative platform at their fingertips. Ahead of the release of a new album each member has shared private stories of how life has been since their last album Plastic Beach via some innovative Instagram posts and the "Book Of…" series.
Yesterday, for a short period Noodle - the band's guitarist/keyboardist and sometimes vocalist - opened an OKCupid account. Reddit users stumbled upon the profile on the dating website and quickly noticed that it was linked to Noodle's official Instagram account - appearing to confirm it's authenticity.
Noodle's profile lists the artists as a 26-year old queer woman, seeking new friends between the ages of 18 and 99. However, in the self-summary section, there is the most teasing element of the profile, it simply reads "Ready? 12:11" and is signed "xxDA" Adding weight, if removing some intrigue from proceedings the profile image quickly changed to show Damon Albarn - a close friend of Noodles, and driving force of the band.
Of course, the question remains - "What does "12:11" mean?" - Is this is a release date for the new album? Is the date shown in American or European dating convention? Is the date simply setting fans up for yet another teaser, and playing with their minds in the way they love their minds to be played with?
