If you’re looking for the latest buzz on the music scene, look no further than punk rock outfit My Chemical Romance. Having never graced our shores before, the band have kept their fans thirsty for a tour down under since their debut in 2003.

In September fans heard the much anticipated news that My Chemical Romance would tour Australia as part of the two massive Green Day shows in Sydney and Melbourne this December.

But now we can confirm that things have gotten even more exciting with the announcement that the band have agreed to perform sideshows in Sydney, Melbourne and…Brisbane!

Recently named by The Guardian (UK) as ‘one of pop’s brightest prospects”, the band has been busy since their second album Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge was released in 2004. They received four MTV video music award nominations for their video Helena and single I’m not OK (I promise) has been a favourite on MTV and the radio. On top of that they have extensively toured the United States and Europe developing a superb live show.

A five piece from New Jersey, the band is led by vocalist Gerard Way. Other members include bassist, Mikey Way (Gerard’s brother), guitarist Frank Iero, guitarist Ray Toro and Bob Bryar on drums.

My Chemical Romance explode with unprecedented energy on stage and have an uncanny ability to tap into the passion of their audience. The music is intense and dark but at the same time highly energetic.

Their live shows have earned the praise of critics worldwide. Rolling Stone said “New Jersey's My Chemical Romance deliver tightly-wound aggression in melodious ways” while Rock Review wrote, “full of energy and able to switch between solemn and comical at the flick of a switch, My Chemical Romance were a hard act to follow.”

NME declared “tonight they leave [the] rest of the chasing pack choking on their dust…” and the Chicago Tribune added “Way, who prances like Mick Jagger and screams like a wood-chipper, was the consummate frontman, able to work the crowd into a frenzy with a simple wave of his arm.”

Tickets go on sale Monday 21 November so make sure you don’t miss out!
