    My Chemical Romance Might Be Getting Back Together And Here's Everything You Need To Know About It

    For starters, the Jonas Brothers are involved...

    If you have any taste in music whatsoever, you know that My Chemical Romance was/is/and will always be THAT. GOOD. STUFF.

    Their songs were GREAT then and they HOLD UP now and you can quote me on THAT. Do not come for my partially-retired emo butt, because I will FIGHT YOU.

    Remember when they sang, like, exclusively about vampires? And how they wouldn't let them hurt you? Gold.

    Anyway — despite having broken up over six years ago — long-time fans of the band have always held out hope for the possibility of a reunion...but, TBH, we're all still healing from that infamous reunion fake-out/misunderstanding that occurred back in 2016.

    Footage of all of us collectively dying at the thought of a reunion tour because some of our parents didn't allow us to go to see them when they were still touring, but we're adults now with our own money and can buy tickets without parental permission needed. DID YOU READ THAT, DAD? I DON'T NEED YOUR PERMISSION. IM 28, DAD.

    But recently, there have been some ~developments~ in the land of the Black Parade, so allow me to break it all down for you:

    It all started earlier this month when — of all people — THE JONAS BROTHERS were promoting their new album on the KISS FM Breakfast Show.

    MCR talk starts at 6 minutes and 20 seconds.

    “I’ve got some dirt," Joe Jonas said. "My Chemical Romance, apparently, were rehearsing next to us in New York recently..."

    Footage of us hearing this news.

    But Joe quickly added: “I thought they broke up, so I don’t know...but that's the gossip.”

    While fans were quick to speculate, they were slow to get excited about the rumor — again, please refer to the earlier mention of Our Greatest Heartbreak, 2016.

    HOWEVER, this excitement was reignited in full-force this week when James Dewees — My Chemical Romance's former touring keyboardist from 2007-2013 — allegedly told fans at a recent show that MCR and I quote: "Might be working on something."

    WMG/Reprise

    Still, while lead singer Gerard Way never ruled out the possibility of a reunion, he simultaneously never seemed too into it, having said back in February of this year: "We definitely get offers regularly to reunite — it’s a constant thing. It’s flattering, it’s really nice of people and I miss playing with the guys, but I don’t think so."

    WMG/Reprise

    While these reports are unconfirmed, several MCR fans took to Reddit to share that they'd ALSO heard rumors of a reunion at OTHER shows around the country featuring Dewees, as well as former MCR guitarist Frank Iero.

    WMG

    Whatever the truth is, we always hope that the members of the band are happy and healthy, and know that — new music or not — our collective love of My Chemical Romance will carry on...will carry on.
