My Chemical Romance definitely got everyone’s attention Wednesday when the band dropped the shocking news that their first tour in nine years in North America was actually going to happen.

It all started with a post on Tuesday on the band’s Instagram that included a clip of a fuzzy screen with some kind of logo. The caption included no other information, except a crystal ball. Then a few hours later, a second clip was posted with a message that read simply, “Please join us on YouTube and www.mychemicalromance.com at 8:35am PST/11:35am EST #MCRXX.” (RELATED: The Jonas Brothers Are Getting Back Together)

Some fans even noticed that in the clip the guy walked through a series of 5 doors, with clear references to four of their earlier albums, leaving fans to wonder if the big announcement wasn’t just for the tour, but that a new album is coming out as well.

The tour will kick off September 9th at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit and run through to October 11th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a total of 18 tour dates. Tickets go on sale at noon on Friday January 31.
