My Chemical Romance have claimed the title of MTV's Greatest Video Of The Century with their iconic 'Welcome To The Black Parade'!


Originally released in 2006, 'Welcome To The Black Parade' was taken from their third studio album The Black Parade and became the band's only UK No.1 single. The video was directed by Samuel Bayer, had Oscar-winning Colleen Atwood on board for costume, and co-starred actor Lukas Haas (Mars Attacks!), who portrayed the lead 'character' of the album, The Patient, being taken by death as the band play on a float in a surreal, dystopian setting.

Frank Iero and the Patience To Play White Eagle Hall In Jersey City

Frank Iero and the Patience plays historic White Eagle Hall in Jersey City on July 22 at 8:00pm, the only New York City area appearance  of their current tour.  The Homeless Gospel Choir will open the night.  Tickets range from $20 to $25. Iero, a Bellville, N.J. native, is eager to perform at this newly renovated concert hall that reopened in May.
“I’m really excited to be playing a home town show in Jersey City,” says Iero. “We’ve had amazing shows in J.C. before and I’m really looking forward to playing a new venue there. I’ve heard great things about White Eagle Hall and I’m excited to discover another gem in the city that holds my heart.” 

Frank Iero, who gained fame as a member of My Chemical Romance and the post-hardcore punk band,  LeATHERMØUTH, formed his punk solo punk project, Frank Iero and the Patience (originally known as frnkiero and the cellabration) in 2014. The group’s recent album, Parachutes, released in October of 2016, is considered by many critics to be a personal breakthrough for the artist. “These burnt and frayed punk songs burst forth with purpose and power, bearing the pale scars of some deep psychic wounds….. Iero has made a grand statement with Parachutes that should not be overlooked.” (Alternative Press)

"Parachutes are life saving devices,” Iero says about his newest record. “The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while.”


NEWS: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Show is Coming from Netflix

Netflix is working on an adaptation of a comic book from the frontman of the band My Chemical Romance, Gerard Way. The first issue of Way’s Dark Horse comic, The Umbrella Academy, was released in 2007. Since then, there was some talk of a movie at Universal, but the story, which is set in 1977, is now in development as a series at Netflix with Way and Jeremy Slater (Fox’s The Exorcist) involved.

Way and artist Gabriel Bá‘s story is about a family of superheroes who possess strange powers. The comic is set in 1977 and is about a millionaire inventor – who’s really an alien in disguise – who adopts seven super-powered children to form a team.  Nine years after they parted ways, they have to team up to save their world, an alternate universe in which John F. Kennedy was never assassinated. According to Slash Report, an official announcement for the series might get made by Netflix at Comic Con. This year, the streaming giant will have a presence in Hall H with Bright and Death Note. 

Here’s the official synopsis for The Umbrella Academy from Dark Horse:
 In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who’d previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, “To save the world.” Conceived and written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), Umbrella Academy features interior art by Eisner-award winner Gabriel Ba, and is a multiple Eisner-award winner itself, as well as a New York Tiimes bestseller!
 There’s some kooky stuff in the comic and hopefully Netflix and all involved will preserve that. For example, the leader of the group, Spaceboy, has his head is attached to the body of a Martian gorilla. Last year, Slater, who wrote the pilot, told Collider he did not want to “sand down some of those weird edges”:

 I was really adamant about taking the job, but the only way I was going to do it was if I could make it weird and make it true to the spirit of the book. There’s a lot of weird shit in The Umbrella Academy, and it would be very easy to sand down some of those weird edges and make it more familiar to American audiences. I’m fighting very hard to not let that happen. We’re shopping around the pilot, at the moment. We’re trying to find the right home for it and trying to find someone as excited as we are.

Apparently, Netflix is as excited as they are. The initial six-issue limited series won a 2008 Eisner Award for Best Limited Series. Since then, a few notable writers have worked on the project, including Mark Bomback (War for the Planet of the Apes) and Dodgeball director Rawn Thurber. Universal developed the movie after signing a three-year production deal with Dark Horse, which led to R.I.P.D. Way is involved in the Netflix series, which will use Slater’s script.
