My Chemical Romance to Release Greatest Hits Album 'May Death Never Stop You' Next Month

Collection includes unreleased track "Fake Your Death."

Ultimate Guitar

My Chemical Romance will release a greatest hits collection titled "May Death Never Stop You" in March, NME notes.

The band, who called time on their career one year ago in March 2013, will put out the compilation on March 24. It will span their decade-plus back catalogue and will also include the previously unreleased track "Fake Your Death" as well as an extra three songs from their "Attic Demos" sessions.

"May Death Never Stop You" will be released both as a standard CD and in a Deluxe version which will also include DVD content. There will also be a Physical Deluxe edition including the CD, and a 180-gram vinyl two-LP set. You can watch a trailer for the album at the bottom of the page.

Discussing the band's split last year, guitarist Frank Iero said: "It was a long time coming. But I didn't foresee it happening at that moment. The announcement and what happened. It was done for the right reasons. I just wish the timing was a bit different."

He went on to add: "It was sad. But at the same time, it felt like I could breathe a little bit. It was a very strange feeling. To see a large chapter of your life close, it's a strange feeling. I don't think we ever had the chance to take a step back and appreciate everything we were doing as we were doing it, though. Now we've all had the time to do that. And that's been really cool."

    Sad that these guys are gone, but at least they went out (almost) on top.
    Glad I grew up, stopped letting outside influence affect my taste in music & got over the whole 'FUCK THESE EMO'S' thing, 'cos I really started to enjoy this band in my late teens. This is a good collection of songs and I wish them luck with their future endeavours
    now you have really won the ****ing upvote lottery, just like i did with the downvote
    Hahaha nah wasn't goin' for votes, not even sure why I bothered writing it (being half asleep after work probably had something to do with it). Suppose I just wanted to advise people to actually check them out and never mind the general opinion, 'cos if you're into impassioned melodic rock they're up there with the best of 'em!
    I kind of grew out of listening to them much, but they were the first band I really got into, and my first show, so they're always gonna have a special place in my heart. It'll be nice to hear some new songs for old times' sake.
    Not a fan of MCR, but wanted to highly recommend the Mikey Way Mustang Bass, that is an AWESOME short-scale bass guitar for people who like mustangs, jaguars, duo-sonics, etc.
    I thought these dudes stopped making music? Well if they go back to their roots I think they'll get popular again with the children. But something tells me they did not keep it OG
    Title says next month. Release is late March (the 25th, not the 24th). Totally pre-ordered the Online Exclusive edition with the OG TYFTV t-shirt. Really happy to be able to hear the last piece they worked on, these guys made some great tunes - especially the Conventional Weapons session.
