Product Description

Product Description

A comprehensive and insightful biography of My Chemical Romance, based on original interview material.

My Chemical Romance are the most significant band in alternative rock for the last decade, selling 5 million albums and selling out arenas worldwide until their split after twelve years together. Author Tom Bryant has been given unparalleled access to the band over the course of their extraordinary career and has a unique archive of interviews with Gerard Way and his brother Mikey, Ray Toro and Frank Iero, as well as their friends and those closest to them, allowing him to go behind the scenes and bring their stories to life. In this unauthorised biography he takes us from their New Jersey beginnings to international superstardom, from the demons they have battled to the power of their lyrics and their extraordinary connection with their fans. This is a definitive account of the most adored rock band this century, a story of self-belief and the pursuit of dreams.

From the Back Cover

My Chemical Romance were the most significant band in alternative rock for the last decade. Inspirational, original, stunningly creative, they forged an extraordinary connection with their fans.

Author Tom Bryant was given unparalleled access to the band over the years and now he draws on interviews with Gerard Way and his brother Mikey, Ray Toro and Frank Iero, as well as friends and associates, to bring their stories to life. He takes us behind the scenes from their very first gig in front of thirty kids in New Jersey - the Ways downing beer to calm their nerves - to international arena-storming superstardom. He sheds light on the personal demons the bandmates battled and the haunted recording session that resulted in the brilliance of The Black Parade. He also explores the genesis of their music, the constant reinvention that culminated in the visual splendour of Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, and the strains that led to their split in 2013.

Insightful and revealing, The True Lives of My Chemical Romance is the definitive biography of the most adored rock band this century, a story of self-belief and the pursuit of dreams.
