Trying to decipher between what is true and what's not is no easy task on April Fool's Day seeing as it's not uncommon for bands to play jokes on their fans during this terrible holiday.  But after an Instagram post from an account with a “@mychemicalromance” handle surfaced teasing new music, fans began to freak over what could possibly be nothing more than a cruel, cruel prank.

RIP emo hearts everywhere.

Debates began almost immediately over the authenticity of the post, seeing as it is not a verified Instagram account.

Comments such as “Is this the official account though?” and “This is a fan account!” are flooding the post's comment section, while others continue to hold on to the slightest hope that maybe there is a bit of truth to it after all.

One thing is for sure, our tiny emo hearts cannot take such a post on April Fool's Day. If you need us, we'll be wiping off our eyeliner and crying in a corner somewhere.
