Joe Jonas Might Have Just Leaked The My Chemical Romance Reunion
As recently as this February, frontman Gerard Way said that My Chemical Romance wouldn’t reunite. And yet, in a recent interview, Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers revealed that the band might actually be getting back together after all.
During an interview with KISS FM in the UK, Jonas revealed that while he was in the studio in New York, MCR were practicing next door to them.
“I’ve got some dirt,” he says at the 6:19 mark on the video below. “My Chemical Romance were apparently rehearsing next to us in New York recently, which — I thought they broke up, so…that’s the gossip!”

Maybe Joe was confused, but if not, this is obviously huge news for My Chemical Romance fans.
In his February interview with The Guardian, Gerard Way said, “When things start to succeed and go really well, that’s when a lot of people start to have an opinion and that’s when you run into struggle. Everybody had a fucking opinion about what MCR should be. So it made it difficult to figure out what direction to take next. You get caught up in this trap of, ‘Is it ever gonna be good enough?’”
“It wasn’t fun to make stuff any more,” he continued. “I think breaking up the band broke us out of that machine.”
When asked about the possibility of a reunion, however, Gerard suggested that it wasn’t something he wanted to pursue, saying, “It’s flattering, it’s really nice of people…I miss playing with the guys, but I don’t think so…”
If the band were going to get back together, this would be the year to do it. 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of the My Chemical Romance’s breakthrough album Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, and if there was a record many fans would like to see My Chem play live in its entirety, this would be it.
