It’s been a week since My Chemical Romance posted their cryptic clip, launching their fans into a frenzy of speculations. The day after the clip was posted, the band took to social media to break the hearts of their fans by denying that there were any plans of a reunion tour and instead that the clip was to announce a reissue for 2006’s The Black Parade. On Thursday (July 28), the band further elaborated about the upcoming re-release.
The Black Parade’s tenth anniversary reissue will be titled The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts. The impending release will include the original version of The Black Parade as well as 11 early version/rough mixes of some of the songs that made it onto the actual album.
“To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Black Parade, we will be releasing a special edition of the album on September 23 that includes the album plus 11 previously unreleased demos, rarities, and songs from The Black Parade recording sessions,” a statement from the band reads.
Pre-orders for The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts are currently available on the band’s website. At the moment, there are two different bundles being offered: a 3-LP vinyl bundle and a CD bundle. Those who pre-order either of the bundles will receive an instant download of “The Five of Us Are Dying,” an early version of what would become “Welcome to the Black Parade.” Listen to the never-before-heard demo of the track here.
