The MCR guitarist speaks out.

My Chemical Romance's Ray Toro has opened up about the band's split and if they will ever reunite.

Speaking to NME about the reunion rumours, he stated,  “Here and there I think we all probably miss making music together – but I think at the same time we’re all very focused on our current projects."

For me it’s a big step for me to finally get my record out, then also I’m planning on doing some touring next year. Frank is very busy with his projects, Mikey just put out a record, then Gerard is working on comics right now – so I think individually we’re all very much focused on what we have going on personally.

When asked about the 10-year anniversary of 'The Black Parade' he explains how surprised they all were by the reaction, “I don’t think we realised how dramatic that teaser trailer was. We were just looking for a cool way to announce the 10th anniversary – and we were all just blown away by the reaction.”

It makes you feel really good" he continues, "because you know so many years later your work is still appreciated and it’s finding a new audience."

Ray Toro releases his debut solo album on November 18, you can watch a trailer for it below.
