The My Chemical Romance members have reunited this week, to attend a show together.
The band officially announced that they were splitting up back in 2013. Now they have been pictured together for the first time at former guitarist, Frank Iero’s gig with his new band, The Patience at Los Angeles’ Troubadour. It seems that most fans just see this as the members of My Chemical Romance just hanging out together, but other fans see it as a possibly reunion in the making.

Fans went crazy last year at the idea that a reunion could happen when the band teased the 10th anniversary of ‘The Black Parade’.
Former My Chemical Romance guitarist, Ray Toro, spoke to NME at the time the rumours started and said, “I feel like that took everybody aback. I don’t think we realised how dramatic that teaser trailer was. We were just looking for a cool way to announce the 10th anniversary – and we were all just blown away by the reaction.”
Toro went on, “It makes you feel really good, because you know so many years later your work is still appreciated and it’s finding a new audience. One of the things we hear a lot that is that people who weren’t even born when that album or when the band first started are somehow into us. I remember when I was in high school, listening to The Misfits. You’d never get to see them live back then but it ends up getting passed down and becomes almost mythical in a sense, so I think that’s pretty cool if that does happen with My Chem.”
He added: “Here and there I think we all probably miss making music together – but I think at the same time we’re all very focused on our current projects
Former front man of MCR, Gerard Way, recently released two new songs for Record Store Day and also told fans that he was working on some “weird” solo material.
“I am always writing music, I am very lucky that way—there is always an idea and something that inspires me, even if it takes me a minute to figure out what I want to say, which is what really creates the space between releases. I am about to convert a structure on our property into a recording studio, which actually won’t take a lot of work as the space is already pretty perfect. Great drums sounds and church ceilings. Secret echo chambers. I look forward to making some really weird stuff here, and mine for the really hard to get diamonds.”
He added: “Moving into the new year, my focus will become split into music and comics, now that Young Animal is running well (thanks to Molly and Jamie’s hard work, and Dan and Jim’s support) it gives me more breathing room to make sounds, some of which may even be connected to the comics.”
