Look By Look: My Chemical Romance's 'Sing' Music Video  
My Chemical Romance just premiered their latest video "SING" on MTV, the second song off the group's upcoming Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album. The video picks up where their previous video, "Na Na Na," left off — in the future, year 2019, as Killjoy characters invading Battery City. And the boys are looking good! For the video, lead singer Gerard Way and the band are wearing slim-fit jackets, while the bad guys are in white masks, all of which were custom-made by renowned costume designer Colleen Atwood (she's the acclaimed designer behind movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Alice In Wonderland, and Nine; and she's won Academy Awards for costume design for Chicago and Memoirs of a Geisha). We caught up with Atwood to find out how she created My Chemical Romance's all-custom "SING" look. Find out all of the details on the band's wardrobe, look by look, with commentary from wardrobe designer Colleen Atwood below.

+ Don't miss “Live In L.A.: My Chemical Romance" to see My Chemical Romance live at the House Of Blues Sunset Strip on Monday, Nov. 22, at 8pm PT/11pm ET (note: the stream will begin at 7pm PT/10pm ET) on MTV.com. And submit your fan questions for My Chemical Romance!

Grant Morrison gets evil for My Chemical Romance video  
It was a gray Sunday morning in Los Angeles — almost Scottish with its gloom factor, in fact – when I headed to downtown to watch My Chemical Romance film a music video for “Sing,” a single off of its new album, “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.” The album and tie-in videos are based on a dystopian vision of the future that was hatched in the mind of lead singer Gerard Way, who is also well-known to comics fans for his work on the award-winning Dark Horse series The Umbrella Academy. As I watched from a corner, Way and his band mates — portraying an armed band of mysterious misfits called the Killjoys – staged a nasty gun battle with the minions of a sinister-looking fellow with a shaved head and ruffled shirt. When the bad guy saw me, he called out, “You again, it’s nice to see you.” It was Grant Morrison, one of the most celebrated names in all of contemporary comics. Morrison is a close friend to Way and, more than that, a trusted advisor on the rock star’s unexpected creative path. He’s now also the man who shoots Way in the head for the sake of music fantasy. “Working with Grant is like working with the king of gonzo art,” MCR guitarist and backup vocalist Frank Iero told me. A week or two later, Morrison and I caught up via e-mail to chat about the video shoot and his good pal, rock star Way.
