There's nothing quite like the feeling of despair that accompanies the break up of your favorite band. But there's also nothing quite like the excitement that comes from your favorite band getting back together for a reunion tour or new album. Here are some of bands we would be most excited to see reunite in the near future.
This year's 8123 Fest—celebrating 10 years of the Maine— saw the first ARTTM show since 2013 and made us all wish we could have been in Arizona for the surprise reunion. We're hoping that the excitement from that show will cause ARTTM to tour again soon.
Patiently waiting for Something Corporate to reunite once again *cough* @andrewmcmahon *cough*

While Andrew McMahon still plays the occasional Something Corporate song while on tour as Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, nothing would beat a reunion tour from one of our favorite early-2000s emo bands. It has been seven years since the band's last reunion tour, and we're hoping for another one soon.
I am pleased to announce, the Jack's Mannequin band and I will be getting together for a handful of exclusive engagements to celebrate the album Everything in Transit. I will be the first to admit, I prefer keeping my focus in the present, but I cannot deny Transit's place in my life and the lives of my fans. Even as I announce these shows I know there will be disappointment over the fact this will not be a full tour. To those of you in markets we are not playing, please know we picked the routing that allowed us to play the most shows in the short time that was available. As I said so many years ago, this is a story, and it will be performed as such, in its original running order from start to finish. The band and I are truly excited by the opportunity to revisit this album and we hope to see you there. Lineup Andrew McMahon Bobby “Raw” Anderson Jay McMillan Mikey “The Kid” Wagner Guest on Keys Zac Clark Pre-sale for the 10 Years In Transit Tour begins this Wednesday at 10am local on Applauze.

And while we're talking about McMahon, I think I speak for all of us who missed the 2015 anniversary tour for Everything In Transit when I say that a Jack's Mannequin reunion would be awesome, too.

While the above tweet has since been deleted (as have all tweets on the band's page), we're hopeful that this implies a Dangerous Summer reunion. The band has replaced both the profile and header images on their Twitter page with pictures of static, and we're excited to see what this mystifying move means for the future of the band.

This one almost goes without saying. We're all still heartbroken over the demise of MCR.
