ABOUT BLINK 182:
It's been nearly two decades since blink-182 first burst upon the scene, emerging from a garage in the San Diego suburbs to take over the world with their signature sound. A strange thing also happened over those years: while singing along to hit after hit and laughing out loud, a generation of fans grew up right along with the band. Every step of the way, they followed Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker's epic journey—both musical and personal.
With 30,000,000-plus records sold worldwide, the trip's been a global one. The trio is recognizable nearly everywhere. They've reaped awards, played the top television programs and graced the covers of publications in the U.S. and numerous countries. Crowds have lined up at arenas around the world to see them play live. Each member has since become a brand-building star, exploring the worlds of fashion/clothing, TV, various musical projects and—most important—fatherhood. Yes, the very same guys who once stunned parents with wildly raunchy jokes are dads themselves.
Now, self-producing their first album and recording together for the first time since 2003, the band is actively pushing their musical boundaries, all while keeping firm hold of the classic blink-182 sound that took them to the top in the first place. And, with the added benefits of age and life experiences to draw upon, the results of these sessions will surely set the tone for the next blink decade.
This is growing up.
ABOUT MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE:
Sometimes, in order to grow, you need to tear down everything that came before. And, if you're My Chemical Romance, sometimes you have to do it twice.
The Jersey band had conquered the globe with their bombastic and bleak, platinum-selling third album, The Black Parade, and after the tour, it became apparent that it was time to make music again. When the band returned to Los Angeles in January of last year, they regrouped at the home studio of Black Parade producer Rob Cavallo. The concept of the new album would be an utterly outrageous explosion of every quirk, kick and punch the band had been holding in for years. Gone was the dark poetry. In its place was unadulterated exuberance.
Out of the album's chaotic creation, a concept came together, one loosely inspired by a comic-book project that dated back to the band's earliest days criss-crossing the country in a beat-up van. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is the album My Chemical Romance have been building towards their entire career. From soaring sentiment ("The Only Hope for Me is You") to bare-knuckled brawling in the streets ("DESTROYA") it defies lazy labels and demolishes expectations. Beholden to no scene, credo or code, it's a rock 'n' roll album from the future aimed directly at the dead-hearted present.
