Is everyone participating in March On Day? I first saw it through this post: http://www.mychemicalromance.com/blog/hidden-color/look-alive-sunshines-...
There is so much I want to say, but I don't even know where to begin. I just finished reading Gerard's post, and a very bittersweet feeling overcame me. I'm devastated that they're done making music. My heart was set on another album (or two, or three, if we're being honest), and more shows to scream my heart out at. But if I'm being honest, it wasn't the fact that the band was over that crushed me the most - it was the concise and impersonal goodbye I thought we were all receiving.
However, in light of Gerard's post, I have (heck, I think we all have) received exactly what I needed to be
But has it officially been stated anywhere that they've truly disbanded? Sure there are tons of news articles floating around about it claiming so - but so far, everything I've seen from the guys themselves or people close to them state nothing factual about them going their separate ways. Everything seems to mention the end of an adventure and the beginning of a new one...which doesn't necessarily mean they've split... Unless I've missed something entirely?
Here's a bit from an interview with James Dewees, posted today on PropertyOfZack:
POZ: On Friday, a lot of fans began wondering if Reggie came back because MCR is no longer a thing...?
James: We’ve been off from MCR for a while. For me, I’m friends with everybody, but when I came back from Los Angeles, I wanted to get busy again. I hadn’t been paying attention to it. I got a bunch of emails last night when the announcement came out. When you’re ready for something to be over, it should be over. You shouldn’t force yourself to do anything you don’t want to do anymore.
I shift between moments of acceptance for what has happened and moments of sadness and anger. While I understand that their reasons for the breakup are their reasons, I do wish that after everything they would have given the fans more than a 5-line "Thanks. See ya." It feels so cold and impersonal, and it doesn't feel right. Definitely not like them, which is why I feel there must be more to this then what we have been given. They wouldn't just bail on us, and we all know that.
We have no idea what's going to happen, but we need to remind the guys that we're still here.
It's been a while since I've logged into my account here, but I certainly have something to say, and couldn't think of a better place to say it. I've been listening to My Chem since I was a sophomore in high school - for 8 years now. Eight fucking years these beautiful boys have been a part of my life. Shitty things have happened, shitty people have found their way in, people have left, and there were times when I want so badly to just give up...but through all of that I've had these guys to make it okay again.
Every single time I've needed inspiration or motivation, I've looked to My Chem.
