Burbank, CA – The wait for new original music from platinum-selling rock band My Chemical Romance is over. MCR have announced that Reprise Records will release their highly anticipated fourth studio album, entitled Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, on November 22nd, 2010. New Warner Bros. Records Chairman Rob Cavallo, who produced MCR’s platinum-selling album The Black Parade as well as albums by Dave Matthews Band, Jawbreaker, and The Goo Goo Dolls, among many others, produced the album.
Danger Days’ first official single, “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na),” will be available from all digital retailers on Tuesday, September 28th. It is the first new original music to be released by My Chemical Romance since October 2006 when the band unleashed their third album, The Black Parade, which shot to No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart, selling more than 240,000 copies its first week of release, and spawning four Modern Rock smash singles. Dubbed “Album of the Year” by Blender Magazine, The Black Parade earned raves from critics (Rolling Stone called it “a rabid, ingenious paraphrasing of echoes and kitsch from rock’s golden age of bombast,” while SPIN called it “savage and heartfelt”) and cemented MCR’s status as a world-class rock band. Following the album’s release, the New Jersey-bred MCR launched The Black Parade World Tour — their longest and most comprehensive trek yet that culminated in a triumphant hometown show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in May 2008.
