Umbrella Academy star Aidan Gallagher, AKA our beloved Five, has announced a release date for his single “Blue Neon – Club Version” and WE. CAN’T. WAIT!

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.


Aidan was quick to address the MCR debate, but only left fans asking even more questions.

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.

Additionally, Iero working diligently on music with his new band, Frank Iero And The Future Violents. Yesterday, he may have revealed one of the band’s members.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
