Frank Iero in hilarious Twitter exchange with a fan who bought some My Chemical Romance CDs

"Whoa... your mailman is slow as fuhk"
Frank Iero has been involved in another hilarious exchange on social media – this time with a fan who tweeted a picture of some “new” My Chemical Romance CDs at the star.
The former My Chemical Romance guitarist shared a post on Instagram yesterday (November 7) detailing some new music he received in the post. “Everyone should own a copy of these records… they should be the new “i voted” sticker,” Iago posted.
Last year, Iero spoke out in response to the latest rumours of a potential My Chemical Romance reunion after his bandmate Gerard Way appeared to spark hopes of a reunion in the future.Speaking on Twitter, Iero said: “I think sometimes interviewers ask one question out of 100 about the past, then use that one out of context answer to get you to click a link,” said Iero. Meanwhile, it was also said that Bowling For Soup told people that the band would be reuniting to headline Reading & Leeds festival next year – to which Iero replied: “Imagine if that’s how we chose to announce it? hahahahahahahahaha.”
“I feel like that took everybody aback,” former guitarist Ray Toro told NME about the rumours. “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.”
Toro continued: “It makes you feel really good, because you know so many years later your work is still appreciated and it’s finding a new audience. One of the things we hear a lot that is that people who weren’t even born when that album or when the band first started are somehow into us. I remember when I was in high school, listening to The Misfits. You’d never get to see them live back then but it ends up getting passed down and becomes almost mythical in a sense, so I think that’s pretty cool if that does happen with My Chem.”
He added: “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.”
