My Chemical Romance fans will want to brace themselves, because the release date for Gallagher’s single is the infamous, heartbreaking date of March 22.
Coincidence? Maybe not.
The Umbrella Academy actor was an MCR fan before the Netflix series based on Gerard Way’s comic premiered.
Aidan Gallagher, the 15-year-old actor who plays Number Five in the series, posted a video of himself covering “Cancer” by MCR back in 2017.
Not only has “Five” stolen our hearts as an actor, but his incredible abilities as both a singer and a songwriter are truly something everyone can enjoy.
Earlier today, Gallagher took to Instagram to announce his single “Blue Neon – Club Version” would be available March 22—the date that emo icons My Chemical Romance announced their breakup.
We’re onto you Number Five… and so is the rest of the MCR fandom.
You’re an MCR fan, I think you’re FULLY aware of that date, yet you chose it anyway… what an absolute unit you are, Aidan.

Aidan was quick to address the MCR debate, but only left fans asking even more questions.
If you listen to the lyrics you'll understand WHY that date. https://t.co/LIhKZjylc1

Same. So much same.
Frank Iero forms adorable Twitter friendship with Five
After Gallagher started geeking out over being noticed by the My Chemical Romance dad, Iero made a video about Gallagher with his child, Cherry.
The video depicts Iero talking to Cherry about one of her favorite shows, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. Additionally, the clip details how one of the show’s stars (Gallagher) is “psyched” that her dad knows who he is.
“So the kid from that show, his name is Aidan Gallagher,” Iero says. “He’s in daddy’s friend’s Gerard’s show. He’s a character named Five. And he’s psyched that I know who he is.”
However, Cherry doesn’t quite make the connection straight away, as she replies, “Why?”
“Because I’m COOL,” Iero quickly says.
