Are My Chemical Romance Teasing Something Related To The Black Parade?
It feels like any time we log onto Twitter at the moment, we can expect My Chemical Romance to have posted something mysterious and sent everyone into meltdown.
Well, their newest post has yet again done just that – not only because it’s just as confusing and cryptic as their previous teasers, but also because this one looks like it could have something to do with their iconic Black Parade era.

Sharing a new black-and-white photo of what appears to be a hospital room, the image not only looks like it matches the visuals of My Chem’s 2006 music video for Welcome To The Black Parade, it also could allude to the band’s epic 2007-2008 Black Parade Tour, in which frontman Gerard Way was wheeled out wearing a hospital gurney to open the show. Could that be what this is a picture of?

But what does it all mean? Hmm…
Fingers crossed they put us out of our misery soon and reveal what’s going on.
In the meantime, might as well give this a re-watch:
In other news, it was recently announced that the band’s epic December 20 reunion show last year was in fact the highest-grossing gig for LA venue The Shrine of all time; it grossed a total of $1,451,745 according to the band’s agency Paradigm, as well as also reaching high figures in merch sales.
Speaking to Variety late last year, Paradigm’s Matt Galle said of how the show came about in the first place: “They had been getting offers for [the last] seven to eight years, and had been talking for a while and trying to figure out the right time, and 2019 was a year that that made sense to them. They had some backstory with their [2010 album] Danger Days. They knew they wanted to do one show and now it’s kind of taken on a life of its own. I think they’re excited about the demand and the response and what else is coming for next year.”
