My Chemical Romance reunite, headlining Download Festival Australia next year

Update: My Chemical Romance will no longer be playing Download Australia due to COVID-19 threat. Consequently, Download Festival has been cancelled because of insufficient time in looking for alternative headliner and the inability to meet the lineup standard that fans both expect and deserve. Full statement here.

After their breakup in 2013, American post-hardcore band My Chemical Romance are bouncing back to life, coming all together to fill stages once again with their heart-melting emo sound. Along with the great news was the announcement of the band's headlining slot at the Australian leg of Download Festival next year March.

They will be performing at the Melbourne Showgrounds and Sydney's Parramatta Park together with a massive lineup of stage-destroying acts like Deftones, Jimmy Eat World and Clutch to name a few. After their Aussie dates, MCR will head their way to New Zealand for an exclusive show happening at Auckland's Western Springs Stadium.

Formed in Newark, NJ, My Chemical Romance made their debut in 2002 with the independently released album 'I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love'. The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made their major label debut with 2004's 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge', now 3x certified Platinum. The album contained the Platinum hit 'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)', the Gold-certified 'Helena', and 'The Ghost of You'.

Rolling Stone hailed the 3x Platinum 'The Black Parade' as one of the top albums of 2006. Lead single 'Welcome to the Black Parade' topped both Billboard's Alternative Songs tally and the UK Official Singles chart and is now 3x Platinum. The band toured extensively behind the album—appearing as characters from The Black Parade—and released the live album 'The Black Parade is Dead!' in 2008. 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' was released in 2010 and topped Billboard's Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as 'Conventional Weapons' in 2013.

Don your eyeliner, black nails and skinny jeans because you're all 'Welcome To The Black Parade' with My Chemical Romance, next year!
