Published Nov 23, 2010Four years have passed since My Chemical Romance released their last full-length album, The Black Parade, to wide critical acclaim and resounding commercial success. Rest assured, the wait is over for those who love the hard-rocking New Jersey quartet.
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys dropped yesterday (November 22) via Reprise Records, and what's more, you can listen to it here, where it will be streaming all week on Exclaim.ca in Canada.
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is a futuristic, dystopian concept album: the year is 2019 and the musicians have banded together to form a brigade of outlaws who call themselves "the Fabulous Killjoys," a group dedicated to creating a raging rock'n'roll cacophony, as well as fighting against futuristic super corporation Better Living Industries on the side.
The first official single off Danger Days, entitled "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)," is a spunky track and enhances the goth punks' musical style of lyrical chants and catchy guitar hooks. The track was featured in the racing videogame Gran Turismo 5 (released earlier this year) and has been followed by the anthemic "Sing."
In support of the album, My Chemical Romance will embark on their "World Contamination Tour," which includes a long string of Canadian dates. What's more, My Chemical Romance will be releasing the Danger Days: "California 2019 Edition" box set, which will include the full album, a collectable ray gun, an exclusive EP with three unreleased tracks, superhero mask, wooden bracelet and a 48-page photo booklet. Just in time for Christmas, mind you.
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys will be streaming on Exclaim.ca until November 29.
