My Chemical Romance are capturing some iconic eras with new vinyl
For those of you that have an extensive My Chemical Romance collection, you better get your wallets ready.
MCR have released new era-defining colored vinyl of three iconic albums and they're only available in one place.
My Chemical Romance are giving you a new excuse to spin three of their classic albums this fall. The band have unveiled new colored vinyl for Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, Black Parade and Danger Days.
Each vinyl features a color that truly defines a specific My Chemical Romance era. For example, the Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge vinyl ($24.98) comes in a red/maroon, a color that is found throughout the album's era. From Helena's makeup in the iconic video to Gerard Way's unforgettable red tie and black suit combo, the color truly throws it back to the Three Cheers era.
The new Black Parade vinyl ($25.98) is perhaps one of MCR's most unique yet. Despite the black and white colors found throughout the album era, the Black Parade vinyl comes in a smokey clear grey color. The vinyl greatly matches the artwork and is also reminiscent of the album's eerie, and tragic, storyline of "The Patient."
Finally, the Danger Days vinyl ($24.98) may not be what you're expecting. One of the Danger Days era's most defining colors is Way's signature red hair. However, for the new colored vinyl, MCR went with a velvet electric purple. Purple has been used on previous Danger Days vinyl, but now it is more vibrant than ever before.
In other My Chemical Romance news, Way recently opened up about the first MCR song he remembers writing. He also revealed why writing "radio hits" was never at the forefront of the band's minds.
Mikey Way is set to host Hot Topic's upcoming Mental Notes benefit show. With performances by Black Veil Brides, Bishop Briggs and more, the virtual event is benefitting Mental Health America. The community-based nonprofit dedicates itself to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness while also promoting the overall mental health of everyone.
