Gerard Way, former frontman of My Chemical Romance, has posted a lengthy update on Twitter regarding his thoughts on interacting with his former band's fanbase. For a little more background, you can read his tweets yesterday.
As far as yesterday is concerned, the last thing I'd want anyone to feel is that I have a general perception of you all as overwhelmingly negative. That is not the case. In an effort to try and help people understand certain things, as a communicator, sometimes it is easier to deal with something when it is directly brought to you, maybe by someone that is confused. People that communicate and connect with each other have a strong desire to be understood. It was...

Mikey Way has talked a little on how the end of My Chemical Romance impacted him with NME.
I was going through it. It was sad, like the passing of a family member. But over time I got great joy and pleasure from reflecting. I was able to truly put on some songs and be like, ‘Wow, we really did something. We cracked the heavens.’ With MCR we were so busy. I was never able to stop and smell the roses, or evaluate myself completely. That’s what the past year was all about. I was able to dig deep inside myself and become the man I always wanted to be.

My Chemical Romance's greatest hits album will also include demos and rarities. The latest annoucement from the band is below.
On March 25, we will be releasing a greatest hits album entitled "May Death Never Stop You." The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us. The album also includes some previously unreleased material, including the infamous "Attic Demos," and one of the last songs we worked on in the studio together. On January 21, we will be opening pre-orders for the album right here on our site. We hope...

Hits Daily Double is listing a new My Chemical Romance release – an album name is not specified – on their upcoming releases chart. The listing date is January 21, 2014. There is no way to tell whether it's a reissue of some kind, B-sides or a greatest hits, but we'll update this news post if any more information becomes available. Feel free to speculate in the replies.

Update: Alternative Press tweeted, "Lots of rumors circulating throughout the #MCRmy today. We have received confirmation that #MCR's alleged Jan. release is NOT new material." This is not exactly fraught with information but it's definitely a tweet.

Update #2: It's a greatest hits package.

Fall Out Boy, Coheed and Cambria, Saosin, and My Chemical Romance were forever memorialized as the subject of parody in an episode of South Park tonight. Just what we need: more stereotypes of kids cutting themselves to "emo" music. Gotta be the most press Saosin's had in ages though.

Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) will co-write and co-direct an upcoming episode of The Aquabats! Super Show.
The episode, which airs June 1 at 1 p.m. ET, co-stars My Chemical Romance bassist (and Way's brother) Mikey Way as the frontman for a death-metal band called Asthma. The group seeks revenge against the Aquabats after losing a battle of the bands because Aquabat Ricky Fitness (Richard Folomir) develops a crush on a contestant named Rachael Moonbug and unjustly awards her the $750 grand prize..

Under The Gun wrote a fantastic piece about the legacy of My Chemical Romance. Read it here.
Humanism is something that lingered throughout the band’s work. I could write entire dissertations on Revenge, my favourite album, which for all its frenzied, explosive pace is at heart a response to the loss of the Ways’ grandmother. The lyrics, music and imagery on that album seared right into my soul as soon as I heard it – it’s like hearing a comic book on record, replete with all the atmospheric intensity and noir sophistication of visceral art. For me, nothing will ever top the guttural, breathtaking verse at the end of my favourite song, “It’s Not A Fashion Statement, It’s A Fucking...

Andy Greenwald over at Grantland wrote a piece on the My Chemical Romance breakup and what they, in particular Gerard, meant to the music world.
Rock critics have long fallen back on superhero mythology to describe musicians; it's a handy way to add grandeur to what tend to be fairly rote backstories, bending boring arcs of rehab and redemption into the Hero's Journey, all in a quest to avoid quoting the drummer. But My Chemical Romance was the first group I covered that actually used that mythology for themselves. Gerard called his band "an idea," labeled his fans an army. From album to album and show to show, MCR reinvented themselves across a multiverse of possibilities: They were...

Gerard Way has written a very long letter concerning the break up of My Chemical Romance.
My Chemical Romance had, built within its core, a fail-safe. A doomsday device, should certain events occur or cease occurring, would detonate. I shared knowledge of this “flaw” within weeks of its inception.
Personally, I embraced it because, again, it made us perfect. A perfect machine, beautiful, yet self aware of it’s system. Under directive to terminate before it becomes compromised. To protect the idea- at all costs. This probably sounds like something ripped from the pages of a four-color comic book, and that’s the point.
No compromise. No surrender. No fucking shit.

To me that’s rock...

James: I have this other thing going with Frank from MCR called Death Spells. We’re opening up for Mindless Self Indulgence in two or three weeks. It’s more like an electronic-hardcore project. We’ve been working with a visual graphics artist and he’s been making these insane videos for us. The music is al little more intense...

My Chemical Romance are breaking up.
Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.

Gerard Way will be releasing the first issue of The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys on June 12th.
Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one—the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI or else join the mindless ranks of Bat City!
