I wish I knew what I could say that could console not just my heart but those fans who feel exactly like I do.
In March 2007, I stood outside Wembley arena, waiting patiently and excitedly for my favourite band, I’d been a fan since mid-2004 but I’d put off seeing them live every time for one excuse or another. By 2006 I had starting on an Art degree and I thought that’s where my life was headed. But life has funny way of changing and boy did it change, I made a decision that I wanted, no I NEEDED to see MCR live and hell I was going to do whatever I could to make that happen.

Now I know, that I can't make you stay but where's your heart?

For 9 years I have emotionally invested myself into this band, I've followed them through it all and have gone to under 20 shows in that time. I've travelled across the UK and I have supported their other endeavours unconditionally.
I have fought off backlash from haters and faced a lot of ridicule for liking them (but I never gave up and I never gave in). I have met some of the most amazing people who are now my closest friends because of this band.

When people say they "saved" my life, I get it but they didn't save me from a burning building or fend off an attacker but what they did do was

Music Lover

I love My Chemical Romance with every fibre of my being just like most of you that reside on mcr.com and mcrmy.com. They are my favourite band of all time and I cannot see a day that they won’t be my go to band.
However my music tastes do not end with MCR, in fact you could say because of this band my appetite for music has grown tremendously.
There are many bands I could recommend which I think I may do, we shall see.

Right now I’d like recommend a band called Max Raptor.

A System Failure For The Masses

… That is exactly what I predict will happen Friday when tickets for Edinburgh go on sale. Fingers are crossed that I will prevail and manage to get tickets. The aftermath IS secondary!
I’m looking forward to more shows being announced.
I cannot believe they’re touring here! I feel like I’ve stepped into some warped dream. It’s only been 3 years since I last saw them…but whose counting. :)

Roll on Friday, for this Killjoy will definitely be making some noise!
