From some incredible outfits to brilliant throwback performances and even a recent a cappella rendition of Cemetery Drive, My Chemical Romance’s reunion tour has given us some absolutely amazing moments over the past year.

But now it’s officially come to an end, with the New Jersey emo heroes wrapping up their run at Punkspring Osaka on Sunday, March 26. And as is their lovably cryptic way, they didn’t make a massive fuss over the occasion, leaving many fans wondering what’s coming next.

Guitarist Frank Iero posted before the show “Tonight’s our (final) night Osaka” along with the words “the end.” and a picture of a cockroach – a famously resilient creature, so that could certainly mean something. Interestingly, too, by the end of the Osaka show their drum kit had “Endless night” written on it, whereas at the start of the gig it was just a black mirror.

Frank will be back on tour with L.S. Dunes soon, with the post-hardcore gang playing several shows including a stint on Sad Summer Fest. The good news is that the guitarist told Kerrang! in January that they do have more new stuff in their “back pockets”, while bassist Tim Payne added: “We never really stopped writing music. We recorded and then we got ready for shows, but it’s always just been, ‘Oh hey, I’ve got this idea!’ We’re always working on things and talking about music and art. Once we can really dedicate our time and focus to that and get in the studio, we’ll do it.”

But what else is going to happen in the world of My Chem? Let’s watch this space…
