Even though most tours are postponed or canceled right now due to coronavirus, it doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about what’s to come. One of those things that may still come to be is the Used touring with My Chemical Romance, at least according to the Used bassist Jeph Howard.
If that’s not enough good news, the Used also dropped their new album Heartwork today (April 24) so pop that on and check this out.
The Used’s vocalist Bert McCracken has been casually mentioning a tour with My Chemical Romance for months. It started at a couple of their intimate live shows, then in a radio interview.
Next, the Used canceled their European tour and their appearance at Slam Dunk Fest. They said an opportunity arose that they couldn’t pass up. This just furthered the idea that they were touring with My Chemical Romance.
“I think we made a big deal about the relationship from the beginning,” McCracken says. “I’ve been friends with Gerard [Way] since the band broke up.[…] I saw him at a Frank Iero show about four years ago and that’s when we reconnected. I do like to tell jokes from stage but I texted him and was like ‘Dude, I hope you guys know that these are all just jokes to make us smile, but we would all be honored to tour with you.”
Well now, the Used’s bassist Jeph Howard appeared on the Colombian radio station Radioacktiva and seemed to promote the hype a little more regarding the tour.

At one point during his appearance, Howard begins to talk about My Chemical Romance. He starts with their touring history as he leads up to playing their cover of “Under Pressure.”
But, at the tail end, Howard says something quite noteworthy.
“[I’m] really glad these guys [MCR] are back together and touring again,” Howard says. “And definitely, at some point, you are going to see us on tour together.”
