Looks like Thursday’s reunion run will be coming to a close shortly.
A couple weeks back we talked about Tape, the new synth-driven electro project of Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley and producer Joshua Hurley. The pair joined forces with Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo and former Men, Women & Children vocalist TJ Penzone (not to be confused with his brother Rick who’s in Color Film with Daryl) to produce their debut material that’s coming out soon.
My Chemical Romance announced tonight that they have broken up.
Soundgarden, My Chemical Romance, Battles, Mariachi el Bronx, and Parkway Drive have been confirmed for Australia/New Zealand’s Big Day Out festival in January/February. Note: Parkway Drive will only appear on Australian dates.
Big Day Out dates include:
Former My Chemical Romance drummer Michael Pedicone, who was fired over the weekend for allegedly stealing from the band, commented on his departure, insisting that his intention was not to profit from the theft, but to frame a crew member.
Pedicone told Kerrang!, “Almost as soon as I began touring with MCR I ran into problems with a member of the band’s crew who I’ll not name. The problems were many, big and small, but some of them were large enough that they began to greatly impact me and, by extension, my family. I’d reached my wits’ end, and I made what was certainly the poorest decision of my life. Rather than address the issues that I had with the crew member in an open and honest manner, I tried to make them look irresponsible. My intention was to make this person look incompetent.”
