The band caused an online storm after deciding to split in 2013, with a vague teaser for a 10thanniversary reissue of album The Black Paradecausing many fansto believe they were gearing up for a reunion.
The 40-year-old frontman however has poked the avid nest once again, after not ruling out a potential reunion in the future.
Speaking toBillboardabout the idea, Gerard said: ‘I wouldn’t count [a reunion] out, but at the same time everybody’s doing stuff in their lives now that they’re really enjoying.
‘In some ways I don’t really miss it. It had gotten so big it was very unwieldy. It took a toll on my mental life and personal life
‘The thing I’m happiest about right now is everybody’s relationships with each other are really strong. That’s more important than anything else to me.’
While a reunion might not be on the cards for the near future, Gerard stated how we could expect a new solo album soon as he’s got ‘a bunch of stuff I’ve written over the past couple of years’.
The album would be a follow-up to 2014’s Hesitant Alien, which was pretty good to be fair so we’ll happily take another.
For now, let’s re-listen to Famous Last Words for the billionth time and pretend everything’s fine. Completely fine.
