Update: A source has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that My Chemical Romance is releasing a reissue of The Black Parade, along with previously unreleased demos, on September 23. 

Original Story: Is My Chemical Romance at long last ending its hiatus? The beloved rock group posted a teaser video on its official Twitter page on Wednesday that hints at a big September announcement.

The 34-second video features a flag with a cross blowing in the wind and the opening notes to "Welcome To The Black Parade," and ends with the date, “9/23/16.” MCR’s Twitter avatar features the same type of cross with the letters “MCRX” configured around it.

Worth noting: Oct. 23 is the 10-year anniversary of the band's epic third album, The Black Parade. If a full-blown reunion isn't in the offing, perhaps some anniversary shows will be?

My Chemical Romance broke up in March 2013 after releasing four albums together, most recently 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Frontman Gerard Way released his solo debut, Hesitant Alien, in 2014.
