Emo band are reissuing 2006 album 'The Black Parade' instead
The defunct band confirmed on Thursday night (July 21) that they won’t be reuniting to mark the 10th anniversary of ‘The Black Parade’ but will re-release the LP with bonus material.
Speculation began that the band might be reforming when they posted a teaser video for the reissue online on Wednesday (July 20).
Reacting to a statement from the band saying that they are “really touched and blown away” by the response to the teaser video but that “there is no reunion planned”, MCR fans have described themselves as “betrayed” and “heartbroken”.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “I love you to bits but I just wanna ask, why would you play it out like this when surely you’d’ve known the response you’d get?” Another said: “You just love breaking our hearts”.
However, some have defended the band, with one fan writing: “Can you guys at least be thankful that they’re doing something”. Another added: “They posted a video, people got over hyped, they had said earlier that they would never get back together. Ever.”
