Greetings, fellow emos! Let's just jump right into this: As you likely already know, back in December 2019 My Chemical Romance reunited in Los Angeles to play a show after a six year hiatus. While they didn't play any new music, it was still exciting* for fans to see the group back together again.
Since that concert, fans have been waiting patiently (lol) for the band to release more tour dates and ANY new music, but they've given little to no clues as to when either will be released — with the exception of a few very creepy posts to their official Instagram.
Here's some live footage of me, every single day since their show on December 20, 2019:
HOWEVER, this past weekend it appears the needle has FINALLY started to move in the direction of new music, with the band releasing this cryptic as all heck video simply titled, An Offering... — and if that isn't the most dramatic, emo-ass thing you've ever seen I don't know what is:
In the short video, we see a few caped figures wearing skull masks making their way through a very smoky forrest.
In the background, we hear an instrumental that slowly builds to chanting. It DEFINITELY sounds like some classic My Chemical Romance-style intro track business. WHERE IS THIS ALBUM?!
The video culminates with the figures entering a clearing in the forrest, where they find a pentacle. Remember when we all told our parents this wasn't a satan-y band (lol)?
Then, one of the caped/masked figures takes out a KNIFE and STABS the center of the PENTACLE. It's ART.
The video ends with the OTHER thing fans have been waiting for...another concrete show announcement! This one being for the United Kingdom.
Naturally, I wasn't the only fan to lose it over this "offering":
It almost seems like they enjoy making us suffer...how very emo of them:
So yeah...there ya have it. At least it SEEMS like new music is on the way?! In the meantime, I'll be in my room, re-perfecting my eyeliner skills and pretending to be patient.
