UPDATED: What’s the worst that they can say? They’re not reuniting.
My Chemical Romance released a statement on Twitter Thursday morning, announcing the group will not be reuniting, leaving die-hard fans with black-streaked tears.
“We’ve been really touched and blown away by the response to the teaser trailer,” the statement reads. “We are not touring and there is no reunion planned – only a release for the anniversary of The Black Parade.”
The band caused a frenzy on social media on Wednesday after posting a video teasing a possible reunion slated for Sep. 23. However, the date signifies the almost 10-year anniversary of the band’s third studio album “The Black Parade.”
Needless to say, fans are not pleased.
The video was accompanied to the piano intro from the band’s 2006 hit song “The Black Parade,” as a flag waved somberly in the wind. The clip ended with the date “9/23/16.”
My Chemical Romance notoriously announced its break up in 2013 in an statement written by the band’s front man, Gerard Way.
“We were spectacular. Every show I knew this, every show I felt it with or without external confirmation,” wrote Way in his 2013 announcement. “And all of the things that made us great were the very things that were going to end us.”
