My Chemical Romance have finally announced their full comeback tour. It kicks off in Detorit in September. The band made the announcement in a video directed by Kris Mercado, featuring music composed by guitarist Ray Toro and keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac. The visual begins with a young man lacing his shoes and brewing a cup of coffee before playing with a ouija board. He then gets summoned into a real filled with allusions and imagery from MCR’s history and discography. Check out the dates in the video below.
In October 2019, Gerard Way and co. announced their first live performance since disbanding in 2013. (It took place in December.) Since then, they’ve unveiled several more appearances and teased a snippet of new music in a mysterious video clip titled “An Offering.” Their last album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, arrived in 2010.
