Fans across the world are capturing everything from the new logo and surrounding imagery to era-spanning odes to the band in light of their return.

CLARITY? DEVOTION☀️ The band that was always there for me since I was 12 years old recently returned, at one of the toughest moments in my life where I needed them most. It’s almost like they knew. It gave me a glimmer of hope in a very dark moment, so I got my first ever tattoos to commemorate that feeling forever. I can look down on them whenever I’m down or upset and find that little beacon of hope and remember all the amazing memories this band has given me. Thank you @mychemicalromance @gerardway @mikeyway @frankieromustdie @raytoro And thank you to the amazing @breadfei.ce_ for popping my tattoo cherry!

Nunca me ha agradado la idea de los tatuajes con significados profundos, ya saben el típico infinito con pajaritos y los nombres de los 25 hermanos y bisabuelos paternos. Desde puberta siempre imaginé mis tatuajes de cosas que me gustan, videojuegos, animes, cómics etcétera y así fue pero el 31 de octubre llegó la noticia que tanto había esperado y soñado (literalmente), el regreso de mi banda favorita My Chemical Romance así que por esta vez hice una excepción. Fueron 6 largos años, 6 largos y tristes años :'), sigo sin creerlo ? #mychemicalromance #mychemicalromanceisback #mychemicalromancetattoo #vsco #pony #pickoftheday #mcr #caca #girlswithtattoos #caca #mcrfanbase #mcrmy #killjoysmakesomenoise
