HOUSE OF BLUES CONCERTS CANADA PRESENTS MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE AND THE BLACK PARADE THURSDAY, MAY 10 · SCOTIABANK PLACE TICKETS ON SALE: FRIDAY, FEB, 23 @ 10 A.M.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 19, 2007) - Reprise Records' MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE have announced their Canadian tour dates, as part of the second leg of their North American tour in support of the breakthrough hit album The Black Parade.

Already certified platinum in Canada, with over 100,000 sold, The Black Parade, an epic theatrical concept album about mortality, has been named "Album Of The Year" by Blender Magazine, stating "MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE transcended the cliche...to craft a grandiose epic that just might make them the biggest band in the world." Rolling Stone says "The Black Parade is the best mid-Seventies record of 2006, a rabid, ingenious paraphrasing of echoes and kitsch from rock's golden age of bombast."

The first single, "Welcome To The Black Parade," was a #1 hit at Canadian rock radio, enjoyed eight weeks at the top of the Alternative / Modern Rock Radio Charts in the U.S. and topped the singles chart for two consecutive weeks in the UK. The second single "Famous Last Words" is fast on its heels, and is already a top 5 hit at rock radio in Canada.

Promising an epic stage show, with the new album being performed in its entirety along with songs from their well-loved catalogue, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE embark on their most extensive and most ambitious tour of Canada to date.
