Popular American rock band My Chemical Romance disbanded in 2013, announcing to their fans that it was time to end things after 12 years and 4 records together. The ‘Famous Last Words’ musicians have decided to release their greatest hits compilation – titled ‘May Death Never Stop You’ – on March 25, 2014 and in order to commemorate it, the band premiered ‘Fake Your Death’, the final song they recorded together on BBC Radio 1, as well as on their official YouTube page.
My Chemical Romance’s lead singer Gerard Way considers ‘Fake Your Death’ to be the band’s eulogy and the song starts as a piano ballad, but is followed by a stomping drum beat. During a screeching guitar solo, Way sings, “Just look at all that pain”.
On the ‘I Don’t Love You’ musicians’ official YouTube page, the song is accompanied by a trailer which features footage of their numerous music videos – from their first hit ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’, to material from their album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’, released in 2010.
The band’s upcoming compilation will be featuring 18 tracks and will include the newly released ‘Fake Your Death’, as well as three demos.
