My Chemical Romance isn’t the Only Band Making a Comeback

We can all breathe easy now, My Chemical Romance has officially confirmed their reunion with the announcement of a concert scheduled for Dec. 20, 2019 and a new line of merch.

The New Jersey band had been on a hiatus since Mar. 22, 2013, with no sign of a reunion until Halloween Day 2019. 

Other than one show and some new apparel, not much information been verified as to what is in store for the MCRmy.

What we do know is that tickets for this show sold out within the first 15 minutes of going live and that their new logo seems very cryptic. 

While we wait for further updates, here are four other bands from the 00’s rock/pop-punk scene that have confirmed some form of a comeback. 

Motion City Soundtrack

Motion City Soundtrack technically formed in 1997 but really gained traction in 2005 with the release of their album “Commit This to Memory.”

Altogether this Minnesota band published six studio albums, five EPs and one live album before calling it quits in 2016.

After three years of each member of Motion City Soundtrack pursuing other interests, they announced a new U.S. tour starting this January called the “Don’t Call It a Comeback 2020” Tour. The band has yet to announce any other news regarding their reunion.
