Following this weekend’s news that My Chemical Romance fired their drummer, Mike Pedicone, after he was caught stealing from them, the band have announced his replacement.

Playing with them yesterday (3rd September) at Salt Lake City - according to altpress.com - was Dead Country’s Jarrod Alexander, who has previously played with both Death By Stereo and the Suicide File.
