35 Pieces Of Wisdom From My Chemical Romance

A year on from their split, My Chemical Romance issue their greatest hits album, entitled May Death Never Stop You, reminding us all how many great tunes they managed to produce during their 12 years together.

May Death Never Stop You: The Greatest Hits 2001-2013 is released on March 24th. Preorder the album now from www.mychemicalromance
