DECEMBER 1, 2010 — Burbank, CA — My Chemical Romance’s eagerly awaited new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which was released by Reprise Records on November 22nd, has claimed the No. 1 spot on Soundscan’s Rock and Alternative Album Charts. It is also No. 3 on the Digital Albums chart and No. 7 on the Internet Albums chart. In addition, Danger Days debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, selling 112,460 units in its first week of release. 

The success of Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys has been driven by fan anticipation for My Chemical Romance’s first new album since 2006’s platinum-selling The Black Parade. USA Today called Danger Days “a polychromatic explosion of rabid riffology,” noting that “My Chemical Romance is now hooked on sonics: loud, raw, aggressive, and seething,” while Alternative Press raved that the album boasts “some of the strongest and catchiest songs of the band’s career.” Rolling Stone called Danger Days “a love letter to all the juvie-hall grads and Ritalin rats still waiting for someone to build a bomb big enough to blow all the pop bands off the airwaves.”

My Chemical Romance, which is singer Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way, and guitarists Frank Iero and Ray Toro, will hit the road in April for their 2011 “World Contamination Tour. Tickets are now on sale. Please visit www.mychemicalromance.com/tour for dates and ticket information.
