More on the My Chemical Romance return
Rumors of a My Chemical Romance reunion have run rampant since the emo staples disbanded in 2013. Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman even revealed he attempted to get the band back together for the tour’s 25th anniversary shows to no avail.
However, one rumor took major traction thanks to Joe Jonas. Yes, the Jonas Brothers member claimed to have heard the band rehearsing.
The brothers appeared on the KISS FM Breakfast Show June 7 to discuss their new album, but during the interview, Joe dished some dirt that definitely toyed with everyone’s emotions. Joe claims that while they were rehearsing in New York, MCR were apparently there rehearsing right next to them.

“I’ve got some dirt,” Joe begins. “My Chemical Romance apparently were rehearsing next to us in New York recently, which I thought they broke up, so I don’t know.”
With Joe Jonas and Mark Hoppus getting our hopes up, Frank Iero finally addressed the rumor nearly a month later. Iero squashed the speculation in an interview with the Asbury Park Press ahead of the Atlantic City Warped Tour.
When asked about My Chemical Romance, Iero denied Joe’s report of the shared practice space. While Iero shrugged off that anything was currently in the works, he left the door cracked for a victory lap someday. “I survived a bus accident, so anything is possible,” Iero said.

Then, finally, they said it would never happen, and then it did on Halloween. Activity began on a new Instagram account for My Chemical Romance with posts surfacing shortly after fans began speculating Iero’s Oct. 30 Instagram post was about more than the weather.
“It’s reported that it’s going to rain in new jersey tomorrow, washing out all Halloween festivities…” Iero posted. “Guess we’re gonna have to find something else to do.”
At 2 p.m. ET Oct. 31, the band’s Facebook page changed their profile picture to a black candle, beginning an hour filled with teases and speculation. Read the rest of the return details from Halloween here.
