My Chemical Romance not reuniting, duh

By | Published on Friday 22 July 2016


The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, they say. And My Chemical Romance’s cryptic teaser of an announcement is a fine example of that. All they wanted everyone to do was wait patiently until September for them to announce a re-issue of ‘The Black Parade’ album, but you all went and assumed they were getting back together, didn’t you?

As previously reported, MCR uploaded a short video to YouTube earlier this week, which did little but flag up 23 Sep this year as a date of interest in the 2016 calendar. That happens to be the nine year and eleven months anniversary of ‘The Black Parade’, so it was fairly safe to assume that something related to that album was happening.

We could all have just noted that and gone about our days, but people can’t help themselves, so the internet was immediately filled with talk of a reunion. As a result, the band have had to reveal that the actual secret is [a] what you could have easily guessed it would be, and [b] not that interesting.

“We’ve been really touched and blown away by the response to the teaser trailer”, the band said on Twitter yesterday. “We are not touring and there is no reunion planned – only a release for the anniversary of ‘The Black Parade’. Thanks so much for continuing to keep MCR in your minds and in your hearts”.

Yeah, thanks guys. And thanks for spoiling everything.
