The guitarist and the rest of the New Jersey emo heroes are scheduled to hit the road from June onwards after their original comeback dates were postponed due to the coronavirus.
Speaking to At The Drive-In’s Jim Ward, Iero admitted that it’s been ”such a weird experience” to have made so many advance plans and still be waiting around for them to happen.
“I can’t wait, man. I really can’t. It’s such a weird experience to be like, ’Hey, alright, all of this stuff that we’ve been working towards and these well-made plans,’ and all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Ah, hurry up and wait.’ But it happens,” he said.
“The plan is to make it seem like you didn’t put any work in, you didn’t prepare for anything like fucking James Dean,” he joked. ”You just want to be cool without even trying.”

In December, the members of My Chemical Romance reflected on their hugely anticipated reunion show in December 2019, one year on from the event.
The emo icons played their first show in seven years on December 20, 2019 at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles, grossing a record $1.5million – the most in the venue’s history.
