Biography


Setting out to release their two DVD/one CD set entitled “Life on the Murder Scene” in November 2005 and a fourth album by 2006, My Chemical Romance kept continuing their dominance in North America as they successfully made a sold-out concert at San Antonio, Texas on September 24, 2005. What is more, they amazingly secured two nominations at the 2005 MTVu "Woodie" Awards, including the major category, Woodie of the Year, shortly after their great attainment to collect five MTV Video Music Awards nominations. Selected to participate in the soundtrack of two video games namely “Tony Hawk's American Wasteland” and "True Crime: New York City," this punk/emotional hardcore band surely has scored higher than what other New Jersey-based music groups have accomplished.

Formed in 2001, the concept of the band was developed by Gerard Arthur Way (born on April 9, 1977 in Newark, New Jersey) during his gloomy time in New York City after graduated from the School of Visual Arts. Dispirited due to his failure to be a comic book artist and deeply affected by the 9/11 incident, he was motivated to head for a new direction in his life. “ … after Sept. 11, I felt like I wanted to make a bigger impact," he explained. "I wanted to connect with people up close and personal." Feeling music was the perfect vehicle to fulfill his desire, Gerard contacted his high school friend, Matt Pelissier, to help him create a composition which later was called “Skylines and Turnstiles.” As these two talented guys decided to make a demo tape, Gerard satisfyingly convinced another fellow, Raymond “Ray” Toto (born on July 15, 1977 in Newark, New Jersey), to be the lead guitarist.
