After reconvening in secret in 2017, MCR finally confirmed their return to action on October 31 before playing a comeback show in LA on December 20.
Posting on Instagram last weekend, Iero shared a picture of a message from inside a fortune cookie which read “even a broken clock is right two times a day”.
He captioned the image with a shrugging emoji and a clock — which is telling as the guitarist invoked the fortune cookie’s phrase in saying “that rumour is like a broken clock” when he was asked about the possibility of an MCR reunion in an interview back in August.
Back in December, Iero commented on his subtle hints in past interviews about the reunion in reply to a fan-made compilation which showed him fielding questions about MCR.
if you were to pay close attention, i say “that rumor is like a broken clock…” some might think that i meant to say broken record, but i did not. Because even a broken clock is right twice a day. ? https://t.co/F1kAL2Bpvw
