My Chemical Romance fans have been speculating about the possibility of an upcoming album from the band, following a cryptic Instagram post.

Fans think they may have spotted a teaser for a new project in a now-deleted post by an associate of the band who goes by the handle @bigwormser.

The post shows a photograph of an acoustic guitar alongside a framed print bearing the slogan ‘I’m Not OK’. Attached is a post-it note, and on the note is written: “5OON”.


A new My Chemical Romance album would mark the band’s fifth studio record, and the cryptic post has left some fans speculating that the message signals a new LP is on the horizon.

The band’s most recent material was 2022’s ‘The Foundations of Decay’ – a surprise single that was their first new release in eight years and first since they announced their reunion in 2019. The band’s last full-length album was 2010’s ‘Danger Days’.

On Reddit, fans have been sharing thoughts on the mysterious post, with one user writing: “Yeah this is probably the clearest piece of evidence we’ve gotten tbh, i mean how else could you interpret this?”. Another added, “(5)oon, or 5 soon. aight i’m a believer now.”

My Chemical Romance wrapped up their lengthy reunion tour in March this year. The band’s first show back together was in December 2019, and their COVID-delayed world tour began with two shows at The Eden Project in Cornwall last summer.

In a four-star review of ‘The Foundations of Decay’, NME wrote: “With a back catalogue of songs about isolation, despair and loneliness with a defiant optimism, My Chemical Romance have always been an important, influential band.”

“During their hiatus,” it added, “that reverence has only grown as a new generation of fans discover them and their message. New music was always going to be a risk, but ‘Foundations Of Decay’ never sounds bogged down with legacy. Across the track, there’s fire, urgency and plenty of joy as My Chemical Romance return in fine, fearless form.”
