Now, I wrote this post a little while ago when MCR announced a reunion (and a visit to Aus for Download Festival 2020) and it was posted as a page on my “Things I’d Swipe Right On” section. That section is a thing of the past. It’ll no longer be in page format but future TISRO posts be posted as actual posts. Anyway, that’s neither here nor there, but I couldn’t go past re-posting this so my fellow emos can wallow in the fact that MCR never did manage to get themselves out to Aus and it’s still not o-fucking-kay.
Ok. Friends. I don’t mean to alarm you, but MCR are coming to Aus for Download Festival next year and I’m not O-Fucking-Kay.
It’s time to grow out your emo fringes, stock up on black eyeliner and fork out an excessive amount of money to witness this god damn miracle in all its G-Note glory.
I remember taking one look at the album insert art for The Black Parade and promptly jizzing in my pants. Look at it. LOOK AT IT.
Many a night was spent trying to replicate that album artwork in the back of my high school art book with The Black Parade & Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge looping in the background. I wish I still had that book – never again have I managed to recreate a piece of art to such an amazing finish. Sad/10.
Anyway guys, you all need to – and I can’t stress this enough – you all need to listen to at least one MCR song this week. This is my gift to you. Though they’re all solid, solid tunes, I recommend one of the following:
Just choose one and listen, out of respect for this long-awaited reunion.
And yes, I’m still salty that my father never took me into the city to see a marching band when I was a young boy.
