|Da Capo Press will be publishing a My Chemical Romance biography titled, Not the Life It Seems: The True Lives of My Chemical Romance, in September. The book was penned by Tom Bryant.|
The definitive biography of post–hardcore rock band My Chemical Romance, based on exclusive, unpublished interviews by the journalist who knew the band best. My Chemical Romance is the Nirvana of the post–hardcore generation. As the most significant band in alternative rock on both sides of the Atlantic for the past decade, My Chemical Romance has sold five million albums and played to packed arenas worldwide. In March 2013, their sudden break–up shocked the industry and made headline news in top music media around the world.
Not the Life It Seems is the true story of My Chemical Romance, a saga of the persistence, dreams, and dark forces that drive a band. Illuminated by more than twenty–four hours of firsthand interviews with the band members and those closest to them, it tells the story of an intensely private band in intimate detail.
