My Chemical Romance (MCR) was huge back in the noughties and they even kind of pioneered the sound for modern punk and, what some consider, emo music.
It has been 18 years since MCR’s first album, “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love,” launched. It was the track “The Vampires Will Never Hurt You” that helped kick-start their careers as professional musicians and ultimately make them a household name.
But a lot has happened since 2002 and Gerard Way is now about to turn 43 years old. His journey to the top hasn’t exactly been a wall in the park. Way has had to overcome many adversities including his inner demons and struggle with drug addiction and substance abuse.
When My Chemical Romance first split on 2013 Gerard tried to find his own way in the music industry and released his solo album “Hesitant Alien“ which many fans believe to be ‘some of Gerard Way’s best material’ to date.
“Hesitant Alien is a magnificently oddly-shaped album that glides and jerks between styles like a turbo-charged rubber ball,” Kerrang! Magazine wrote about Way’s solo album.
Unfortunately it was clear that Way was not in a healthy placed both physically and mentally. The once adored sex God was starting to look a bit more like a random chubby neckbeard. Some people even compared him to popular Australian Twitch streamer, Chad “Anything4views aka Cold Ones” Roberts.
“He doesn’t look the part anymore, MCR is dead,” one fan argued on YouTube. However, fans flocked to the singer’s defense saying that he looks a lot better than he did before and are thrilled to see him touring with his former band again.
Gerard Way is back for My Chemical Romance Reunion tour!
My Chemical Romance have reunited for a reunion world tour and shows everywhere are selling out fast proving that there is still huge demand for these emo titans. Heck, Aussies can catch them live at Download Festival 2020, in Sydney or Melbourne, alongside Deftones, Jimmy Eat World, and new psycho-pop sensation SKYND.
