Listen to My Chemical Romance’s Swan Song


My Chemical Romance really know how to keep their memories alive after announcing their demise last March. While the word of mouth has been mostly around their last official music endeavors together in the form of a greatest hits album, it still tugs at fans’ heartstrings to know that this is in fact, the end.

Last week, someone at the band’s record label, Warner Brothers, took their social media accounts into their own hands and revealed that they would be releasing the band’s last new song, “Fake Your Death,” this week. At first, and probably until this afternoon, some thought that it was a mean joke like when a hacker got into their Twitter account last year.

The tweet and Facebook post are not fake and today we got their last song for, we’re hoping, now.

My Chemical Romance’s greatest hits, May Death Never Stop You is set to be released on March 24; a year or so after calling it quits.

But keep in mind kids, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge turns ten in June; there’s still hope.

My Chemical Romance’s “Fake Your Death” to Debut Next Week


Considering that My Chemical Romance haven’t done anything in a year since it was announced they would be disbanding, today has become quite a MCR news filled day. First it was the talks of a musical being based on The Black Parade and now someone at Warner Bros. Records has taken over the band’s official Twitter to reveal that the only unreleased song from their greatest hits album, “Fake Your Death” will debut next week on iTunes.

But for those that are little apprehensive about the news, like us here, someone also got a hold of the official Facebook page to also announce that the song will be released digitally on iTunes on Monday, February 17 in the evening. Those who pre-ordered the compilation last month should also keep an eye out because the posts say that those will be getting the track as well that evening.

As for the MCRmy, Killjoys or whatever they are calling themselves these days (we maintain MCRmy here) deep down we want these posts to be the real deal because it’s the last piece of the band that we have aside from memories and all the albums, DVDs and live performances.

May Death Never Stop You is set to be released on March 25th

My Chemical Romance Announce Details About Greatest Hits


When it was confirmed that My Chemical Romance would be coming out with a new album, let’s just say some of us were over the moon. When we were told that it was nothing more than a greatest hits album, the excitement somewhat diminished, but still there was hope that maybe some of the tracks from the ill-fated fifth album would make its way onto the upcoming compilation.

Well, it looks like some of the hoping has come in our favor because during the weekend, the band released a joint statement about the greatest hits album confirming that some never-before-released tracks would be featured on the album.

Also confirmed in the statement was the release date for May Death Never Stop You. Giving fans somewhat of a closure, the release dated has been confirmed for March 25; a year after the band decided to call it a day.

Read the full statement below and yes, Mikey Way did sign the end “Mike.” It’s definitely the end of an era.

“Hello all,

On March 25, we will be releasing a greatest hits album entitled “May Death Never Stop You.” The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us.

The album also includes some previously unreleased material, including the infamous “Attic Demos,” and one of the last songs we worked on in the studio together.

On January 21, we will be opening pre-orders for the album right here on our site. We hope you take the journey with us into MCR’s past, and enjoy the small taste of what might have been.


Ray, Gerard, Frank, Mike”

Stream The Killers’ ‘Just Another Girl’


With just a week until their greatest hots compilation, Direct Hits! makes it to stores, The Killers have released the music video for their second new song to be featured on the record.

The song, “Just Another Girl” is the second of two new songs that they had added to the greatest hits album, which like it says consists of selected hit songs from throughout their career. “Just Another Girl” plays up what happens in the aftermath of a break up with lines such as “All of my friends say/I should move on/All of my friends say/She’s just another girl/Then why can’t I sleep at night?/And why don’t the moon look right?”

Deep. Very deep.

The new track was produced by Stuart Price who has been associated with the band for a long time. Price remixed early singles like “Mr. Brightside” and went on to produced their third album, 2008′s Day & Age.

The band announced a few months ago that they would be releasing the compilation record in celebration of the tenth anniversary of them being a band. Last month, they debuted, “Shot at the Night” which was produced by M83 mastermind, Anthony Gonzalez; this song marked the second time that The Killers and the music man collaborated on a track.

Just a few weeks back, Calvin Harris contribution to the record, a remixed version of “When You Were Young” from Sam’s Town, the band’s sophomore album.

For now, you can head on over to VH1 (yes apparently they still play music) and listen to the new track there.

Warner Bros. to Release My Chemical Romance Greatest Hits


Earlier today, Property of Zack had reported that My Chemical Romance might be releasing a new album in January. The rumor of the band putting out an album all began when Hits Daily Double listed the band the band in the upcoming releases section of the site; the site took down the information, but a snap-shot of it can be seen below.

The release date was January 24, 2014 through their longtime record label, Warner Brothers, while the name of the album was still TBD. Originally, it was confirmed that no, the band that had disbanded earlier this year, had not come back together to put out a new album, much to the chagrin of their MCRmy, including some people here.


Instead of it being a new album, frontman Gerard Way confirmed on Twitter that the album listed on the site will be the band’s greatest hits that Warner Brothers had put together.


Sadly, it might just be collection of singles and B-sides that some fans might have had for quite sometime. Some are starting to wonder if some unheard B-sides might make it onto the greatest hits album including that album that was supposed to come out before the split which had been temporarily titled, MCR5 as well as songs from Conventional Weapons which they had released some from last year.

Only time will tell if that hope will come true, but at least we know that Way will have some input into the artwork of the album, so things might be good anyways.

Calvin Harris Takes on The Killers


The Killers just finished releasing the music video for their new song, “Shot at the Night” last week, after revealing a lot of new information along the way. The news included two new songs and a greatest hits compilation titled, Direct Hits!,  in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the band.

“Shot at the Night” had been produced by electro-group, M83’s frontman Anthony Gonzalez; the second collaboration that the twosome had done. But for The Killers, having one electro-dude on the album was not enough. When the news surfaced about the compilation, the band released a track list for fans to look over and on it, there was a familiar name remixing one of their hit songs.

Calvin Harris had been tapped to remix the band’s hit song, “When You Were Young” from their second album, Sam’s Town. Harris has recently made a name for himself on top 20 radio stations thanks in part to his song, “I Need Your Love” featuring British singer, Ellie Goulding.

For now, you can listen to the mixed track here.

Direct Hits is set to be released on November 12, while “Shot at the Night” will officially be released as a single on November 4. Continue reading

The Killers to Release Greatest Hits


This year marks the tenth year anniversary of one of our personal favorite bands here, The Killers.

For some fans, it was probably inevitable that the band would be releasing greatest hits this year. For a little while now, there had been some talk that the band would be releasing a greatest hits album just in time for their tenth anniversary and it looks like talks were pretty accurate because they revealed earlier today that they would be dong just that.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, the band have decided to give fans their first greatest hits compilation which will be titled, Direct Hits. 

The compilation will include two new songs one titled “Shot at the Night”and the other will be titled “Just Another Girl.” “Shot at Night” was produced by the mastermind behind the French electro-group, M83, Anthony Gonzalez. A music video for the song will be coming pretty soon according to some sources. The video will be directed by Robert Schober, who has previously worked with the guys on “I Feel It In My Bones” and “Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

The video will apparently touch on some of the most cliched things about Las Vegas such as Elvis impersonators, casinos and little white chapels like the one drummer Ronnie Vannucci used to work at in the good ol’ days.

Direct Hits will of course feature many of the band’s hit songs including “Mr. Brightside” and “Somebody Told Me” from their debut album Hot Fuss and “When You Were Young,” “Read My Mind” and “For Reasons Unknown” from 2006’s Sam’s Town.

Sadly, some of our favorite tracks like “Jenny Was a Friend of Mine” and “Human” will not be featured on the album, but that’s why we have also those albums in our possession.

Direct Hits is scheduled to drop on November 12.
