Punk pop band My Chemical Romance has not been active for the past six years, but last month Joe Jonas started a rumour.
Frank Iero, guitarist for MCR has dispelled the reunion gossip and he wondered why a JoBro started the rumour.
“I’ve got some dirt.” MCR was “apparently rehearsing” next to the pop band in New York recently, “which I thought they broke up, so I don’t know,” said Joe Jonas in an interview with UK’s KISS FM Breakfast show.
Maybe he misheard.
MCR guitarist Frank Iero had an interview with the Asbury Park Press saying that a reunion is not happening and he also doubled down in an interview for the Zach Sang Show.
“I don’t understand why you would do an interview about your band and talk about someone else’s band,” Iero said in the interview, which aired Wednesday.
“I think they’re trying to rebrand their band as a real rock band and they’re trying to mention as many rock bands and trying to get, like, synonymous with other things. And people aren’t gonna forget that you’re a Disney band, bro. Sorry, it’s not gonna happen.”
So that’s that.
Kevin, Joe and Nick of Jonas Brothers have been flying high since reforming.
“Sucker” their comeback song hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking their first leader on the list.
The album it’s lifted from Happiness Begins bowed at No.1 on the Billboard 200 last month.
MCR disbanded in March 2013, announcing at the time it was simply “time for it to end” after 12 years and four albums as a unit.
