My Chemical Romance’s Black Parade Is Coming to Los Angeles
Ladies get your chains out, fellas, get your mascara out, MCR is coming to town. Led by Gerard Way, the rock band of oft-disputed genre, announced a reunion show called “Return” on December 20 at the Shrine Expo Hall.
Meanwhile, Rage Against the Machine is showing they’re not just relics of the past. Their official Instagram account materialized out of thin air last night.
With just one cryptic post of a photo of the Chilean protests and some dates underneath, the band has the internet losing its mind. In just 13 hours, the post already has 40,000 likes. Two of the dates in Indio, CA, line up with Coachella dates in 2020.
After breaking up in 2000, Rage released the cover album “Renegades” in 2000 and the recording of their final show “Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium” in 2003.
Since the breakup, lead singer Zack De La Rocha has collaborated with artists from Blackalicious to Run the Jewels to DJ Shadow. He also formed his own band with Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. Meanwhile, lead guitarist Tom Morello has remained busy with his own folk project and his partnership with the late Chris Cornell for Audioslave.
