A MESSAGE FROM MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
news
We have recently learned of the suicide and tragic loss of Hannah Bond. We'd like to send our condolences to her family during this time of mourning. Our hearts and thoughts are with them.

My Chemical Romance are and always have been vocally anti-violence and anti-suicide. As a band, we have always made it one of our missions through our actions to provide comfort, support, and solace to our fans. The message and theme of our album "The Black Parade" is hope and courage. Our lyrics are about finding the strength to keep living through pain and hard times. The last song on our album states: "I am not afraid to keep on living" - a sentiment that embodies the band's position on hardships we all face as human beings. If you or anyone that you know have feelings of depression or suicide, we urge you to find your way and your voice to deal with these feelings positively.

5 May 2008 - 12:22pm

My Chemical Romance NEW TOUR DATE (unconfirmed but promising)

When: October 11th
Where: The Event Center Arena, San Jose, CA

Apparently this is going to be a My Chemical Romance concert with Panic at the Disco!

The only confirmation that there has been is through a worker from The Event Center Arena. This will remain unconfirmed until Ticketmaster, MCR or PATD confirms it.

Ex-Blink 182 member Tom Delonge speaks about the MCR controversy around emo and the Hannah Bond suicide


Tom DeLonge says he can relate to band controversy

Jun 12, 2008


Former Blink 182 guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge has spoken out about the recent controversy surrounding My Chemical Romance and their suggested links with 'emo' suicides.

DeLonge told Buzznet that he had experienced similar controversy while in his former band. He defended My Chemical Romance, saying there was nothing abnormal about the content of their lyrics.

"The same sort of thing [being blamed for fans' behaviour] happened to me with Blink," he said, "so I can understand what it's like to be a part of something like that."

Gerard Way Reveals Update on New Album & Other Projects for My Chemical Romance


While fans have waited impatiently through My Chemical Romance's self-imposed hiatus, the boys in the band haven't exactly stopped working. While they haven't been concentrating on My Chem, Gerard Way revealed to MTV that the members have been keeping busy with other projects while they gear up to write and record their third major label studio album.



Gerard shared his further thoughts on the hiatus situation. "People need to kind of miss us because there was a point in the last two-and-a-half years where you could have seen us at least once a month if you wanted."


So what have the guys been doing while they've been "living?" Gerard has been working on his Eisner Award winning comic The Umbrella Academy. He's also apparently working on something "super secret" for DC comics as well. Could we be seeing Gerard Way writing one of DC's multitude of classic characters in the near future? And if so, who?

Gerard's brother Mikey has also apparently been working on a comic of his own. Since the Brothers Way grew up reading comics together it seems fitting. But if there's no unicorns I'm going to feel more than a little cheated.

Frank Iero has been hard at work with his new band Leathermouth, which is set to tour this fall with Reggie and the Full Effect. Peep Frank as Frankenstein in Reggie and the Full Effect's new music video.


Ray Toro has been busy crushing my dreams getting married to his long time girlfriend, as well as fronting a Weezer cover band. Why are all the good men taken? Where have all the cowboys gone?

As for Bob Bryar, he's in Chicago. Doing...stuff. I don't know what "stuff" is, but a rough guess is that he's using his time on hiatus to begin a career as a masked avenger of the night. Logical conclusion and all that.

But not to worry, the boys will be back to work on a new album soon. After all, they're already working on their cover of "Desolation Row" by Bob Dylan, to be used as the first single from the upcoming film Watchmen. That soundtrack will hit shelves in December for all of you, like me, who are chomping at the bit for some new MCR material.

As for their new original material, Gerard Way has said it won't necessarily be punk, but will be "stripped-down." "It's hard to say at this point, but musically, how Black Parade tapped into the glam, classic rock of Queen and Ziggy Stardust, this taps into something different — not punk, but maybe in its proto sense. The aesthetic — it is extremely different, and it is more stripped-down too. When we get a chance, we're going to get together and do some demos and start rolling. But we're going to take it slow."

But what about the theme of the album? Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge tapped into the idea of vengeance, The Black Parade was a celebration of death which got MCR dubbed an "emo death cult" by the always reputable Daily Mail. So, what sort of gloomy, depressing ideas will they be tackling next?

Gerard says, "It will be more direct, more about life, and have more social commentary in there...That's where it's kind of heading now. It won't be a 'boohoo' record about 'Oh, we got famous,' but a commentary on how the world is now."

A LETTER FROM GERARD WAY

Hey guys,

Gerard here... I'm hanging out with Mikey in New Jersey, relaxing, drinking coffee, talking comics, and getting ready to take a drive down south tomorrow. I don't know what states I'm passing through but I know where I'm heading. Don't worry I've got a the Clockwork Orange audiobook, a Dr. Pepper air-freshener, and a GPS so I don't get lost. We figured b now everyone that's a fan of the band might be wondering what we're up to, what we're planning, so I thought I'd write this letter and fill you all in.

We're living, decompressing- The Black Parade took over two years to tour and six months to make so that's a lot of existing in a fictional world, and we're just extremely happy to live in a real one for a while. One thing I can let you know is that we're excited. Genuinely more excited then we have ever been to be in this band, make some new music. And we have ALL been writing new material in our own separate worlds... I started a week after I got home, buying a good rig, an old Jag, and a bunch of pedals- just searching for the next sound.

Bob is recovering well from his recent wrist surgery- exceedingly well considering how risky the procedure can be. We're all really happy that when he picks up the sticks again he won't be in the intense pain he was in during the last year of touring. It's going to take him a while to rehabilitate but know him, he will most likely be playing the drums before the doctor says it's a good idea. He just loves playing, we all do. Franks on the road with Leathermouth and Reggie and The Full Effect so you should go see them and get spit on[/b]. I know Leathermouth doesn't have a record out yet, but Frank gave it to me in Mexico and I can easily say it's my favorite post-hardcore record of the year, so I know you will at least enjoy the songs if you don't know the words.

One of the best parts of the last five months was getting to see Ray get married and all of us be a part of the wedding. It was beautiful. I'm not sure where the happy couple is right now but I am sure wherever they are, they are really enjoying it. I have never seen him happier in my life. So we made plans to get together soon and make some demos, see where our heads are at, take it slow. If explosions happen in our heads right away who knows how soon we could have a record out, we aren't in any rush but we get just as anxious as you to find out what the next "thing is going to be.

So that about wraps it up... I'm glad I could stop by for a chat, I think I will do it more often. I'm writing more comics, writing more music, and missing my wife right now. Oh, and I heard a rumor that I died in a car accident.
I didn't.

xo.
