For all you My Chemical Romance fans, we’ve both good news and bad news.

The good news is, the rock band will be releasing a reissue of “The Black Parade” (2006) along with some previously unreleased demos and fans can now put up pre-orders for new t-shirts; the bad news is, they won’t be reuniting.

On Thursday (21st July), My Chemical Romance uploaded a short teaser video on Twitter, featuring a waving flag, which holds the symbol of a cross. The piano intro to the group’s “Welcome to the Black Parade”, originally titled as “The Five of Us Are Dying”, can also be heard in the background. The clip then ends with the date “9/23/16” – to mark the song’s 10th anniversary.

The tweet caused quite a stir among fans and netizens on social media as many assumed that the band is reuniting. But it turns out that the upcoming album is “only a release for the anniversary of ‘The Black Parade'”, nothing more.

Produced by Rob Cavallo, “The Black Parade” is My Chemical Romance’s 3rd studio album and it went platinum after its release in 2006 and it reached #2 on the Billboard 200 that year.

The band was formed by frontman Gerard Way and drummer Matt Pelissier soon after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. Their final album release was “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys” before disbanding in 2013.

Although there won’t be a reunion, a re-release album is good consolation, no?
