Listen to My Chemical Romance

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is set to take the stage on his own for the first time this summer.  He's booked solo appearances at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festivals on August 22nd and 23rd, respectively. 

Earlier this month Way announced on his new website that he's now signed as a solo artist with Warner Brothers Records, and his debut album is "near completion." 

Way and his My Chemical Romance bandmates parted ways last year, but released the greatest hits collection May Death Never Stop You back in March.
