This isn’t book related but I had so many thoughts and was feeling so much emotion that I had to write it all down.
I’m a newer My Chemical Romance fan, but when I fell in love with that band, I fell hard. They are one of my top 3 favorite bands and I listen to one of their albums every single day.
Yesterday a very cryptic video was released by My Chemical Romance.
A white flag with a black cross billowing in the breeze while the Black Parade played in the background, followed by a date: 9/23/16
I watched it, didn’t blink for a second while it was playing, I screamed when I saw the date and immediately burst into tears, I cried happy tears for so long yesterday. I would think about it and start to tear up, I listened to all the albums as I thought what could this date mean?
As a hopelessly devoted fangirl who didn’t get to go to the last tour, to me this could only mean one thing: The announcement of the long awaited Reunion Tour.
Cue the happy tears.
I have been stalking the My Chemical Romance website for months and for months under the Tour tab it says “Check back soon for more details on the upcoming tour.”
Of course my mind jumps to the conclusion that this date will be the announcement of the reunion tour. Why wouldn’t it?
I have never met another My Chemical Romance fan who wouldn’t sell their soul and plead and beg for just one more tour.
That’s not what that video was about.
Cue straight up sobbing.
That video was just an announcement for an anniversary release for The Black Parade.
I felt my heart break when I read that.
Is it my fault that I got my hopes up?
Is it my fault that my heart is broken?
Do I still feel like my emotions have been played with?
I think that was overall a cruel thing for My Chemical Romance to do. I am not the only one who jumped to that conclusion, I am not the only one devastated. My Chemical Romance still has a high demand and a high fan base and releasing that cryptic video really played with the fans emotions and I don’t think that’s an acceptable thing to do. They know how strong their fan base is and they should have known that the fans would be so hopeful to immediately jump to that conclusion that the bands going on tour.
After all the hope springs eternal.
I have crying on and off all morning, and I cant listen to My Chemical Romance without crying. It kills me to say that I may need to take a break from this until my heart heals itself.
Thank you for reading this. I had to get it off my chest.
