My Chemical Romance released ‘Sting earlier this year. The slow-burning, inspirational ‘Sing’ was cultivated at the home studio of producer and Warner Bros.

Brown (Prince, Alicia Keys, Smashing Pumpkins), can be seen at www.mychemicalromance.com.
‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ is the album My Chemical Romance have been building towards their entire, nearly decade long career. From soaring sentiment (‘The Only Hope for Me is You’) to bare-knuckled brawling in the streets (‘DESTROYA’) it defies lazy labels and demolishes expectations. Beholden to no scene, credo or code it’s a rock ’n’ roll album from the future aimed directly at the dead-hearted present. “Next year it’ll be ten years since we’ve been together,” says guitarist Frank Iero. “That’s a long time to stay in one shade. And I think if you’ve been a fan of our band for a long time then you need these different feelings in your life, these different emotions to come through. And I know that because it’s what we need right now.”
