The Mesa, Arizona quartet’s commercial breakthrough came with the release of Bleed American, with single “The Middle” hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart and peaking at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 33 weeks total on the chart.

Futures, their follow-up album to Bleed American, featured single “Pain,” which also hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Alternative Airplay chart, made Billboard’s Hot 100 (No. 93), and is RIAA-certified Gold. In October 2019, the band released their tenth album, the critically acclaimed, Surviving.

June 2022 saw Jimmy Eat World return with their first independent release, single “Something Loud”.

My Chemical Romance’s March tour, will be their first return to Australia since their appearance at Big Day Out festival in 2012.

MCR first made their debut in 2002 with the independently released album “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love”. The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made its major-label debut with 2004’s “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge”, now 3x certified Platinum. The album contained the Platinum hit ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise),’ the Gold-certified ‘Helena,’ and ‘The Ghost of You.’

Rolling Stone hailed the 3x Platinum “The Black Parade” as one of the top albums of 2006. The lead single ‘Welcome to the Black Parade’ topped both Billboard’s Alternative Songs tally and the UK Official Singles chart and is now 3x Platinum.

The band toured extensively behind the album – appearing as characters from “The Black Parade” – and released the live album “The Black Parade is Dead!” in 2008. “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys” was released in 2010 and topped Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as “Conventional Weapons” in 2013.

Better start limbering up to hit the mosh pit stat.
