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.

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