MTV will use its massive on-air and online reach to bring fans unparalleled access to the band ranging from live performances, music videos, interviews, and exclusive footage.
Danger Days is is the first new original music to be released by My Chemical Romance since October 2006 when the band unleashed their third album, The Black Parade, which shot to No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart, selling more than 240,000 copies in the States in its first week of release, and spawning four hit singles.
Dubbed “Album of the Year” by Blender Magazine, The Black Parade earned raves from critics (Rolling Stone called it “a rabid, ingenious paraphrasing of echoes and kitsch from rock’s golden age of bombast,” while Spin called it “savage and heartfelt”) and cemented My Chemical Romance’s status as a world-class rock band. Following the album’s release, the New Jersey-bred band launched The Black Parade World Tour — their longest and most comprehensive trek yet that culminated in a triumphant hometown show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in May 2008.
** Shake online caught the band live in Manchester recently and suffice to say ‘They Were Amazing. It Was A Gathering Of Souls, Not Just A Gig, An Event That Was Akin To Ziggy Stardust in 73′; A Moment In Time That Will Not be Replicated… Ever. The New Songs Sound Like David Bowie Fronting INXS With U2 Soundscapes. The Best Of The 70s, 80s, 90s In The 21st Century. This New Album Will Make Them Stadium Fillers…
The anticipation for the new record is incredible with both fans and the general public waiting to hear where this great band will take us next. It’s been way too many years since bands connected with their audience like MCR do - this isn’t simply music… It’s a Religion!
