My Chemical Romance kicked off the North American leg of their 2011 “World Contamination” Tour at the beginning of April.  Now, over a month in, the band shows no sign of stopping.  Their U.S. dates wrap up at the end of May in Vegas and from there they’ll be heading to Europe to contaminate!  Check out the full list of dates here.

Their set is a sweet mix of songs from their latest release Danger Days: True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoy and all of the old classics. We recently caught their show in Boston at the House of Blues, check out our gallery from the show below.

Note:  My camera imploded shortly into the second song so I didn’t get a chance to get a ton of photos of each band member, my apologies.

My Chemical Romance & Bob Bryar Part Ways

March 3, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

My Chemical Romance has announced that Bob Bryar is no longer in the band.  Here’s the message on their website:

Hello Friends,

Recently it seems as though every time we write to you guys we have bad news, and we apologize for that, but we’ve learned in life you can’t have the sweet without the sour. As a band we have been very fortunate over the years that our sweet times have greatly outweighed the sour ones, and a great deal of that is owed to you, the fans. Which is why we wanted this news to come from us and not some bullshit gossip site.

As of 4 weeks ago, My Chemical Romance and Bob Bryar parted ways. This was a painful decision for all of us to make and was not taken lightly. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and expect you all to do the same.

We also wanted to give you all a quick heads up on how the record is progressing. We have been writing some very powerful new songs so this week the four of us entered the studio once again, and what has been ending up on tape each night is some of the most exciting and honest work we have ever created.

We hope this letter finds you well, we miss you…
talk to you soon,
xo MCR

My Chemical Romance Check In From The Studio

August 3, 2009 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

My Chemical Romance is currently in the studio in Los Angeles working on their  fourth studio album with  producer Brendan O’Brien. O’Brien is known for his work with Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, and many others.

The band began writing the songs in May 2008 — a week after they finished up more than a year of touring in support of their 2006 platinum-selling concept album The Black Parade, but frontman Gerard Way says things didn’t really come together until about six months later. He adds that the new album is the first one the band has recorded that is not centered on any one concept.

“At this point, the best way to describe the new album is My Chemical Romance being the purest, most distilled version of itself,” Way says. “No bells and whistles, as the focus has been on melody and songwriting. If it doesn’t work in a room with just the five of us, we aren’t trying to make it work in the studio with effects and string sections. Making The Black Parade allowed us the departure we needed to see what worked and what didn’t, experiment, and add a lot of elements we never would have. Sometimes you need to leave to come back home. To me, it feels like the culmination of everything we have learned as songwriters and players.”

Adds guitarist Ray Toro: “I think the direction of the new album is a perfect mix of what we did on Black Parade and what we did on Revenge. After Black Parade, we were ready for a more aggressive sound, similar to Revenge, but even harder. Because we had toured behind Black Parade for so long, we wanted to do the complete opposite of that this time out, almost kind of de-construct ourselves.”

To shepherd them in the studio, MCR has turned to O’Brien, whom Way describes as “fantastic and fun to work with. He also has the ability to take a band and get the best possible version of that band at that moment, which is what we really wanted.”

“What we’re bringing from Black Parade to the new album is that sense of creative spark, where anything can feel possible, except distilled into a three minute, 30-second song,” Toro says. “I can say, hands down, this is our best record yet. We’ve gotten even better as songwriters and musicians, and we cannot wait for people to hear what we came up with. It’s all of the best characteristics of the band finally on one record.”
