Described by Spin as 'A new breed of band. A new kind of fan', and by NME as 'the most dangerous men on the planet', My Chemical Romance emerged from New Jersey in the aftermath of the 9/11 atrocity to become the standard bearers for a new fusion of punk, glam and emo. After steadily building a committed and enthusiastic following on the back of their first two albums, 'I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love' and 'Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge', MCR achieved global prominence in 2006 with the release of their platinum selling album 'The Black Parade'. The band have toured extensively throughout the United States, Britain and Europe, adding to their widespread fan base with incendiary, sold-out live shows that established the quintet as the emerging force in alternative rock. 'This Band Will Save Your Life' tells the definitive story of this groundbreaking band. Examining their influences and ethos, and charting their rise from obscurity to the apex of the post-millennial rock pantheon, this book details the lives and backgrounds of the Way brothers and their bandmates, their personal battles with emotional insecurity and the pop-culture influences (comics, splatter movies) that have made MCR unlike any other band in the world today. Packed with unique images of this highly visual group, this book will be a must-have for the legions of Black Paraders.
