Inactive-since-2013 rockers My Chemical Romance are up to… something. 

On Wednesday (July 20), the band updated its official website and social media accounts to show off some sort of a teaser video. The 35-second clip ends with “9/23/16” -- which happens to be the exact 10-year anniversary of their highly successful third album Welcome to the Black Parade.


Are Gerard Way and company getting back together to play live and/or make new music? Are they just re-releasing the album? If so, they’re doing an A-plus job of promoting it. Whatever the case, we’ll have to wait and see for now. Billboard has reached out to a representative for the band for more information.

My Chemical Romance played what would become its final show at Bamboozle festival in May 2012 and announced its breakup in March 2013. The last MCR studio album was 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Frontman Gerard Way released a solo album in 2014 and last month, Billboard caught guitarist Frank Iero’s performance at Shadow of the City Festival
