Get your eyeliners out and chop your locks into edgy layers again, because THE emo-punk band of our teenage years just teased something MAJOR
A video that lasts for a little over 30 seconds shows a black flag flying with MCR’s logo on it. In the background is the instrumental to their hit track, Welcome To The Black Parade. Though they didn’t specify at the time what this was all about, they did mention the date: Sept. 23, 2016.
As soon as this tweet was published, fans went berserk, speculating that their favourite band of the 2000s will be reuniting. If it can be recalled, 10 years ago, the quartet released their platinum selling album, The Black Parade. It’s safe to say it was one of the best albums of the decade, with a theme on death and anguish and everything darkly beautiful.
However, the band was quick with their follow-up tweet
Yes, sadly they don’t seem to be holding some emo parade or even a concert at best. They are just going to be re-issuing The Black Parade for their very special decade anniversary that marks spectacular artistry.
It was way back in 2013 that the band decided to part ways. Members Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Bob Bryer continued their careers, with lead singer Gerard doing some collaboration work for an electronic track. The last album released by them was Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys.
All we can do is hope that they maybe change their minds and give us one more performance to remember for another decade. During their heydays, they were one of top punk bands, along with the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Green Day, Tokio Hotel among others. Though they did’t win any major awards, they were a cult favourite, especially with the ongoing raging goth-punk scene of the previous decade.
