MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE:

THE LEGEND OF THE BLACK PARADE


MCR’s groundbreaking, game-changing, scene-shattering third album turns 10 this year with a deluxe reissue featuring unreleased tracks and demo versions. We went through the AP archives to revisit some of the moments around the album, from its early beginnings to the last show the band played in support of it. From the exclusive art from Gerard Way to your favorite bands weighing in on MCR’s enduring legacy, this is truly an event to celebrate.

SPECIAL

THIRD IS THE WORD: THE 2016 APMAS WRAP-UP

Couldn’t make it to the Alternative Press Music Awards this year? Here’s a smattering of what you missed when Columbus, Ohio, opened their door to us and we ate all their food, drank everything in their fridge and broke a lot of furniture. (Not really—but it was still awesome.) Plus, 2016 Artist Philanthropic Award winner JAKE LUHRS of AUGUST BURNS RED explains the work of HeartSupport.

THE AMITY AFFLICTION

Written by Dan Slessor

The furious metalcore masters from Down Under are no strangers to danger. But when their frontman got too far into the dark, he fought his demons with his art.

TOO CLOSE TO TOUCH

Written by Maria Sherman

The Lexington, Kentucky, quintet (and APMAs Skully winners) weren’t afraid to explore the dark side, even after their frontman’s great personal loss.
