My Chemical Romance teased a ?reunion? on Thursday that got fans all hyped up, but a recent tweet from the band clarified that a reunion or tour is not really happening. The band is only re-releasing their hit ?The Black Parade? album to celebrate its tenth anniversary since its 2006 release.
The band first posted a teaser video on their social media accounts which showed the MCR flag waving dismally in the wind accompanied by the piano intro from their most popular song ?Welcome to the Black Parade.?
The video ends with a date, ?9/23/16.? It has been confirmed that the date signals the release of a reissued version of ?The Black Parade? album which will also include unreleased demos.
The band posted a response to the legions of fans who showed their love for the band and were hoping for a reunion or a tour. But MCR recently clarified that there is no reunion or tour planned, only a release for a tenth anniversary version of ??The Black Parade?.
The post began with a show of gratitude to fans, ?We?ve been really touched and blown away by the response to the teaser trailer.?
And then confirmed that there is no tour or reunion happening, only an album release on the September 23. The post ended with, ?Thanks so much for continuing to keep MCR in your minds and in your hearts.?

The hit 2006 album went platinum after its release and landed the number two spot on the Billboard 200.
News broke out of their disbandment when frontman Gerard Way released an essay to announce their decision.
?We were spectacular,? he wrote. ?Every show I knew this, every show I felt it with or without external confirmation. And all of the things that made us great were the very things that were going to end us.?
He concluded the essay with, ?My Chemical Romance is done. But it can never die. It is alive in me, in the guys, and it is alive inside all of you.?
