Nostalgia Boners Ahead: The "When We Were Young" Festival Has Released Its Lineup And It Seems Too Good To Be True

Loudwire - The "Scene" has a home base this fall, as My Chemical Romance and Paramore will lead an outstanding lineup for the 2022 edition of the When We Were Young festival taking place Oct. 22 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, Nev.

The newly announced lineup includes a who's who of veteran emo and scene bands and sitting atop the bill is the reunited My Chemical Romance and the reactivated Paramore who are currently working on their first album since 2017 after Hayley Williams took some time for some solo recordings.

I don't even know where to get started on this.

Is it the fact that it's 2022 and tickets are on sale for $225 for what looks to be the best music festival of this century?

The fact it's in Vegas in October (perfect weather)?

Or the fact Live Nation managed to put together the lineup they did?

LOOK AT THIS LINEUP -  AFI, The Used, Bring Me the Horizon, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Alkaline Trio, Manchester Orchestra, A Day to Remember, Pierce the Veil, I Prevail, The Story So Far, Dance Gavin Dance, The All American Rejects, Boys Like Girls, Carseat Headrest, Sleeping With Sirens, Knocked Loose, Jxdn, Avril Lavigne, Motionless in White, Black Veil Brides, Ice Nine Kills, Senses Fail, Bayside, Silverstein, Palaye Royale, Mayday Parade, The Maine, Neck Deep, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, Atreyu, Acceptance, Story of the Year, Mom Jeans, Wolf Alice, Nessa Barrett, The Starting Line, Thursday, Anberlin, Armor for Sleep, Glassjaw, PRVIS, Poppy, Saosin, TV Girl, La Dispute, We The Kings, Hawthorne Heights, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Wonder Years, Royal and the Serpents, 3OH!3, Lil Huddy, State Champs, Four Year Strong, The Ready Set, Kittie, Horrorpops, The Linda Lindas, Meet Me @ the Altar, Prentiss and The Garden make up the stacked bill.

The news blowing everyone's minds on twitter is that Paramour has reunited. 

Haley Williams actually announced last week that the band was back together and recording a new album. 

If you followed Barstool Backstage on social media you would have known this.

Rolling Stone - Hayley Williams always knew her debut solo album, Petals for Armor, would be a detour, but she still felt anxious about getting Paramore back together after several years apart. But on the first day she, Taylor York, and Zac Farro reconnected at a Nashville studio space, those nerves quickly melted into relief.

“We wrote and tracked something we loved and it actually surprised us,” Williams tells Rolling Stone in an email. “We kept joking it was all downhill from that point, but thank God we’ve been surprised a lot throughout this whole thing. I’m always waiting for the moment for us to know we’re onto something new and we’re not just rehashing the same shit. It was ‘Ain’t It Fun’ for our self-titled record, and ‘Hard Times’ or ‘Told You So’ for After Laughter. It’s not about it feeling like a hit so much as it’s a scary, exciting feeling that you’re treading uncharted waters. It keeps you curious. We got to feel that feeling early on this time.”

They've also got Jimmy Eat World on this, Avril Lavigne, All American Rejects, Dashboard Confessional, and Alkaline Trio.

What a fuckin nostalgia boner.

My Chemical Romance is also in the mix and headlining. My only concern is this festival is only one day, Saturday, October 22. So they're probably splitting the headliners into two stages which means you're gonna have to choose between Paramore and My Chemical Romance. Or splitting half and half. If that's the case, I'm starting at Paramore, and ending at Chemical Romance.

No chance I can miss "Welcome To The Black Parade"
