Calling all emo kids! The day has finally come: My Chemical Romance is getting back together! Or at least, that’s what we think their super mysterious teaser video on July 20 meant. See for yourself, right here!
We’ve been waiting three years for this moment, guys! On July 20, My Chemical Romance uploaded a video to their Facebook page. Their posts have become few and far between since their official split in 2013, and what they do post is all promotional stuff for albums and merch, but this was different.
The video starts out with the MCR logo flag waving gently in the wind while the piano from “Welcome to the Black Parade” plays in the background. Then, suddenly after 30 seconds a date appears: 9/23/16. BOOM!
But what does it mean?! There is literally no other info out there except the date. You may remember that Sept. 26, 2006 is the day that their legendary music video for the song (which was basically a short film directed by Samuel Bayer) was released. So the big reveal date is exactly ten years later. That makes us think (hope) that maybe they’re going to announce an anniversary tour!
However, there are definitely other theories out there. Some fans think that they may be releasing a whole new album on that day, while others think they may be putting out a documentary from that crazy time in their career. Finally, some fans think it will simply be a release of a re-mastered version of the original album. That would be absolutely devastating, so we’re hoping it will be a new album or anniversary tour.
Here are some of the best fan reactions and theories:
MCR has predicted the Apocalypse will be 9/23/2016.

Even if MCR aren't fully back together and it's just a reunion album or tour (which I won't be able to go to) I'll still be happy
