Interview: MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE is "for f***ing life".
Written by Shahlin Graves | Friday, 24 February 2012 23:24



MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE guitarist FRANK IERO is standing side-of-stage watching Best Coast's set at the Auckland Big Day Out. He applauds at the end of every single song, squinting thoughtfully in appreciation of the band, with frontman GERARD WAY joining him for a few minutes before it's time for the pair to prepare for their own set on the festival's main stage. Likewise, their band-mate RAY TORO has also been taking advantage of the day's sights and sounds, being quick to tweet his appreciation of a fellow band on the tour: "Vaccines on at BDO. Sound great!"

Dear friends, what follows is a few weeks of our lives in digital form. These photos were taken between the days of January 17th 2012 and February 6th 2012, as we toured the great lands of New Zealand and Australia respectively. As brothers we roamed these grand terrains. Friends were made, enemies slain, pie faces devoured with a quickness and fury. We are better men because of these (mis)adventures, but i must warn you... some of these images cannot nor will not be unseen.
enjoi at your own risk.
no worries. xofrnk

New Video Interview From Big Day Out  
My Chemical Romance Answer YOUR Questions!

A few weeks ago we were given the opportunity to interview My Chemical Romance and, knowing how passionate you guys are (especially the MCRmy!), we wanted YOU to ask the questions.

So we put the call out over our Facebook and Twitter and, of course, we were absolutely inundated! After narrowing the questions down (with some help) we sent them to My Chemical Romance and eagerly awaited their reply.

What we were not expecting was this great video from Mikey, Ray and Frank!

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions! We read them all and appreciate you taking the time to send them in.

Mikey Interview with Coup De Main  
Interview: MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE's MIKEY WAY talks Big Day Out 2012.
Written by Shahlin Graves

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE commemorated their ten-year anniversary on September 11th last year, which was followed up by the announcement a couple of weeks later, that the band would finally be returning to New Zealand - for the first time in five years - as headliners on the 2012 BIG DAY OUT.

Bassist MIKEY WAY gave Coup De Main a call while doing some last-minute Christmas shopping in Los Angeles at the close of last year…
