They're instead planning to reissue the album
My Chemical Romance have confirmed that they won’t be reuniting to mark the 10th anniversary of ‘The Black Parade.’
Yesterday, rumours circulated about a potential reunion after the Emo band posted a mysterious video teaser online.
The 34-second clip, which was posted on Twitter, featured a flag with a black cross on it billowing in the wind – and ended with the date 9.23.16 (September 23, 2016), marking the tenth anniversary of The Black Parade’s release.
But the band have now taken to Twitter to confirm that they will be reissuing the album for the anniversary, but won’t be reuniting for any live shows.
They wrote: “We’ve been really touched and blown away to the response to the teaser trailer. We are not touring and there is no reunion planned – only a release for the anniversary of The Black Parade.
“Thanks so much for continuing to keep MCR in your hearts and in your minds.”
Understandably, their fans are pretty gutted about having the briefest of hopes dashed.
One wrote on Twitter: “My heart has legit been ripped out.”
Quite aptly, another simply added: “I’m not OK”
