Background

With their name taken from a book title by author Irvine Walsh, My Chemical Romance were put together in 2002. Soon after forming, they were signed to New Jerseys idependant label Eyeball Records. They released their debut album entitled "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" through that same label. Then they went out touring with bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, and Boys Night out.

After a lengthy and rigorous tour schedule they took some time off to write some new material. Two years after their debut album was released they recorded another album. They came bearing a new record label, Reprise Records, and bearing a more mature sound. The music MCR plays is very unique and filled with every emotion possible.

With their new album "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" out in stores now, they've set out on tour again. This time taking out Boys Night Out, Nightmare of You and Driveby. Soon after this tour ends they'll be taking part in Warped Tour this year as well. After Warped Tour they'll be taking part in a tour with legendary band Face To Face. Be sure to check 'em out when they come near you!
