Killjoys, Make Some Noise!


March 22nd, 2013- a date that will live in infamy. It was the day that alternative rock fans mourned the loss of one of their most famous bands: My Chemical Romance. The five-member group, led by the iconic Gerard Way, split apart but maintained good relations, supporting each other’s individual careers and not causing drama. Way states that the break up was “nobody’s fault,” and that it was simply time for the group to break apart. He goes on to explain that My Chemical Romance will never really be over, with his famous quote, “It isn’t a band. It’s an idea.” This has proven to be true; MCR’s touching lyrics and nostalgic music have impacted fans world wide, and they remain largely in the limelight with over 7,000,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.

But now, in 2019, a popular fan theory has been proven true; the band is reuniting and going back on tour. Thousands worldwide celebrated the return of one of the world’s most legendary emo-rock groups, and tour dates have been released for the US and Australia. The theory that MCR would make a return in 2019 came about due to hints from their album, ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.’ A specific image has circulated the internet for a long time- a map with writing that reads ‘California 2019.’ MCR’s first comeback show will be on December 20th, 2019, in California which has led many people to question: Was all of this planned from the beginning, or is it purely coincidental? With Way’s tendency to make deep connections and lasting stories, most have assumed that this was the intention from the beginning- to give his band a blast of a comeback, when they were ready to return.
