Read more: My Chemical Romance saved my life
The My Chemical Romance reunion speculation stems from a recent Billboard interview with former MCR frontman, Gerard Way. Way spoke about his new comic book, Doom Patrol Vol. 1: Brick By Brick, which was released yesterday.
In the chat, Way also fields a question about the chances of MCR getting back together, in which he responds that he “wouldn't count [it] out.”
“I wouldn't count (a reunion) out, but at the same time everybody's doing stuff in their lives now that they're really enjoying,” says Way.
Now, MCR guitarist and solo musician Iero has responded in kind, communicating to a fan on Twitter concerning Way's statement. When asked what he thinks about Way's MCR reunion talk, Iero says that the quote was possibly presented in a misleading manner.
“I think sometimes interviewers ask one question out of 100 about the past then use that one out of context answer to you get you to click a link.”

Iero's current band, Frank Iero and the Patience, released their album Parachutes late last year. Gerard Way's debut solo effort, Hesitant Alien, dropped in 2014. For now, Way says that he's focusing on his comic work, but plans to release new music in the future.
“There's a plan to put something out; I don't know when that'll come, but the process is starting,” Way says.
Way also pointed out to Billboard that he doesn't “really miss” the process of conducting My Chemical Romance business, saying that it had grown “so big and it was very unwieldy.” He says he's “happiest” now that MCR's former members are still close with each other.
“In some ways I don't really miss it; It had gotten so big it was very unwieldy. It took a toll on my mental life and personal life. The thing I'm happiest about right now is everybody's relationships with each other are really strong. That's more important than anything else to me.”
