sooner than that. i don't think they fully thought this through. the band members are already reminiscing the past and using hashtags like #mcrforever and they haven't even broken up for a week
They've been off for a good while now, I'm guessing the decision was made a while back, they just took time to fully think things through and now that they're done they're looking back before moving on. I think if they'll be back it'll be a long while.
