My Chemical Romance play first show in seven years in Los Angeles

The band announced their reunion back on Halloween.

It’s official: My Chemical Romance are back and they’ve now played together live for first time since 2012.

The band - made up of brothers Gerard and Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Ray Toro - performed together for the first time since they announced their hiatus over six years ago when they hit the stage at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall on Friday (20th December) night.

The band’s set covered tracks from across their career - including an appearance from their debut album’s ’Our Lady Of Sorrows’ - with the band opening proceedings with classic cult hit ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’, before closing with two encores, featuring ‘Vampire Money’, ‘Helena’ and ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’.

In The Studio with… Goat Girl

In The Studio with… Goat Girl

The South London quartet’s self-titled opener made for one of 2018’s most adventurous debuts. Heading into their imminent second, Goat Girl are older, wiser and sticking even further to their guns.

Naked Ambition: The Nude Party

Naked Ambition: The Nude Party

The Catskills sextet might deal in good, old-fashioned rock’n’roll, but amid the late nights and giddy highs we find a band prepared to knuckle down and put in the hours to keep the dream alive.

Talking ‘Bout My Generation: Will Butler

Talking ‘Bout My Generation: Will Butler

Not content with being one sixth of one of this century’s most innovative bands, Will Butler can now add ‘Harvard graduate’ and a second solo album full of curious, questioning brilliance to his CV.
