My Chemical Romance Announce Canada-Friendly World Contamination Tour

My Chemical Romance Announce Canada-Friendly World Contamination Tour
It sure seems as if touring gets bleaker every year for New Jersey punks My Chemical Romance. While a couple of years ago the group traipsed around the world on their Black Parade, their upcoming tour title is even glummer. Named the "World Contamination Tour," the trip will see the act criss-crossing the continent to promote their latest album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. If it weren't for My Chemical Romance's snotty, pumped-up arena anthems, we would figure everyone in the band is in need of a new Zoloft prescription.

The tour, which hits up Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal, doesn't start until next April, save a couple shows in December, but a post on My Chemical Romance's website explains that pre-sales for the gigs can be purchased on Wednesday (November 17). That's basically a week before Danger Days' November 22 release date.

While there are a number of ways to celebrate snagging some sweet seats for the upcoming concerts, you will unfortunately have to hold off on shooting your band-issued ray guns in the air for the moment. Those bad boys won't be shipped to you until next week.
