My Chemical Romance Are Getting Back Together
My Chemical Romance, the band who introduced black eyeliner to millennials, have announced they're getting back together for a show and we're very okay with it.
The kings of emo rock announced their split in March of 2013 -- and fans were sent reeling from decimated dreams.
Now, six years later they're shouting loud and clear: The band will carry on.
The New Jersey-based band behind 2000's punk-pop anthems like "Welcome to the Black Parade", "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" and "Helena", announced a reunion show on Thursday on their social media accounts.
The performers posted a black and white graphic with the word, "RETURN," which appears to be the name of the event, featuring an angelic-like statue in the background.
"Like Phantoms Forever ..." reads the caption, a reference to their 2002 EP of the same name.
The band has only announced one show in Los Angeles on December 20. The tickets sales begin on November 1, at 12 pm, according to their Instagram post.
Bassist Mikey Way and guitarist Frank Iero both tweeted a link to their respective Instagram posts, with the words "California 2019" shortly after the announcement.
Frontman Gerard Way posted the same message on Instagram, but guitarist Ray Toro hasn't yet posted the news on his social media platforms.
While there's no sign of the band coming to Australia anytime soon, MCR fans appear to be very okay with the news.
The Halloween (US time) announcement comes as podcast king Joe Rogan revealed he and Way are cousins -- but they're not close.
“Yeah, I don’t know him, but we’re cousins,” Rogan said.
