Fans react to rumours of My Chemical Romance reforming

Could the band be reuniting for the 10th anniversary of 'The Black Parade'?

My Chemical Romance fans have been reacting to a mysterious video teaser the band posted online today (Wednesday, July 20).

The New Jersey emo band originally split up in 2013 but earlier shared a 34 second clip that features a flag with a black cross on it billowing in the wind. Slow piano notes play over the top of the video, which ends with the date 9.23.16 (September 23, 2016).

Fans have pointed out that the date is exactly a month before the 10 year anniversary of the band’s third and most successful album ‘The Black Parade’. Others have also noted that the band have deleted their original break-up tweet.

Reacting to the news, one My Chemical Romance fan wrote: “Not even My Chemical Romance could kill My Chemical Romance”.

Another said: “If My Chemical Romance really are coming back I’m doubling the thickness of my eyeliner and disowning my parents”.

Since disbanding My Chemical Romance, frontman Gerard Way released his own solo album ‘Hesitant Alien’.

The band released a greatest hits record ‘May Death Never Stop You’ in March 2014.
