A My Chemical Romance and The Used Tour Will Happen
Speaking to Colombian radio station Radioacktiva, the Used's bassist said “[I’m] really glad these guys [MCR] are back together and touring again. And definitely, at some point, you are going to see us on tour together.”
Check out a clip from the interview here.
Pretty exciting, right?!
Bert McCracken, vocalist for the Used, has been teasing a tour between the two bands for months.
During a performance in January, McCracken told the crowd that "you might catch us on tour with My Chemical Romance in the fall."
He expanded on his comments in a recent interview with Loudwire, clarifying that all is well between the two bands and detailing how they share "a storied history." Furthermore, McCracken told the Green Room podcast that "I’ve also just been announcing that we are on it [the MCR tour], just because, yeah, we should be."
The more that comes out about a potential My Chem/Used tour, the more it seems like there must be something in it.
The Used released their new album, Heartwork, today (Apr. 24). The record features collaborations with blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, Beartooth's Caleb Shomo and Fever 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler.
News has been quieter from the My Chemical Romance camp in recent weeks, but earlier in the month they did announce the cancellation of their first U.K. comeback show at the Eden Project in Cornwall. The organizers have stated their desire to rebook the emo legends for 2021.
In the absence of new My Chem music, frontman Gerard Way has been busy dropping old demos from his solo project, as well as releasing details about an abandoned post-MCR band called Baby Animal Hospital. The vocalist has uploaded a variety of tracks that didn't make the cut for 2014 solo LP Hesitant Alien to his Soundcloud page, including two recent additions, "PS Earth" and "Crate Amp_1."
As things stand, My Chemical Romance are set to play a number of shows across Europe and the U.S. throughout 2020. No support bands have been officially confirmed.
