My Chemical Romance have no reunion planned, they’ve stated.

Speculation exploded yesterday after the band released a teaser video for an unspecified event in September this year, which ties in with the 10th anniversary of groundbreaking album The Black Parade.

But despite fans’ hopes, Gerard Way and co will not be staging a return to action.

My Chemical Romance say: “We’ve been really touched and blown away by the response to the teaser trailer.

“We are not touring and there is no reunion planned – only a release for the anniversary of The Black Parade.”

They add: “Thanks so much for continuing to keep MCR in your minds and in your hearts.”

The band split in 2013 – but frontman Way later revealed he’d wanted to break up the band years earlier, admitting: “By the end of The Black Parade I had in fact said everything I wanted to say.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
