Let’s face it: Summer is easily the least emo of all the seasons. It’s bright, everyone’s too happy and wearing black is way too hot. However, summer is here whether you like it or not, so you might as well make the best of it. 

The question is: What soundtrack sums up your emo summer?

While fans are still hoping the fabled My Chemical Romance reunion is still in the works, Frank Iero is making the record clear following Joe Jonas‘ recent comments.

In case you missed it, Joe claimed in an interview last month that MCR were rehearsing right next to the brothers in New York.

The realistic side of the fanbase chalked it up to a possible Future Violets practice session, along with other theories. However, many were convinced this was finally word of the reunion we’ve all been waiting for.

Sadly, though, Iero became the latest former MCR member to squash rumors in an interview with the Asbury Park Press ahead of Atlantic City Warped Tour.

When asked about My Chemical Romance, Iero denied Joe’s report of the shared practice space.

While Iero denied that anything was currently in the works, he left the door cracked for a victory lap someday.

“I survived a bus accident, so anything is possible,” Iero says.

While some think the band are keeping plans under the radar, every shred of hope is met with denial from the band’s former members.

Joe Jonas’ comments seem to be setting off a renewed interest in an MCR revival.

Late last month, former MCR member and current member of Reggie And The Full Effect James Dewees reportedly teased some inside news on the band.

While on tour with Frank Iero And The Future Violents, Dewees allegedly brought up the band at various shows and told fans “they might be working on something.”

It may have seemed like a strong bet for an actual leak, but a representative of Dewees’ team reached out soon after to clarify his onstage comments were concerning work with a project not related to My Chemical Romance.
