From this day, onwards, October 31 is not just Halloween. It is also the day that former emos, children of the early naughts and fans of alternative music alike, will now and forever celebrate this as the day one of the most iconic bands of the 2000s announced their long-awaited and never-believed reunion. My Chemical Romance broke the internet today by posting new images on their social media, creating an Instagram account and announcing a concert in Los Angeles on December 20, 2019.

The group disbanded in 2013, and Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Ray Toro went their separate ways to pursue their own careers and other projects. Not many fans believed a reunion would ever happen. But the band has been active on their social media accounts, sparking a frenzy every time, only this time it was real.
Although there hasn’t been an announcement for new music, there have been posts with several newly designed logos and possible album covers — so fans might be in for a treat.
