This puts to rest any publicity stunt theories imo. I think they really are done, at least for a while. (hopefully on the shorter side)
I definitely agree that this should have been the original message, because it gave me a huge sense of closure. Gerard is a fantastic writer, and made me perfectly understand why the band broke up even without explicitly telling us the reason.
I wish the MCR guys good luck in their future endeavors, and I hope we get new music someday.
