My Chemical Romance Biography Coming in September

Posted by - 02:06 PM on 08/04/14
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The definitive biography of post–hardcore rock band My Chemical Romance, based on exclusive, unpublished interviews by the journalist who knew the band best.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.

"Nirvana of the post-hardcore generation" and "most significant band in alternative rock on both sides of the Atlantic for the past decade," is that commonly accepted? Or am I just that out of it?

Yeah, I've never really heard anyone say that; sounds like an incredibly grandiose statement.

I like My Chem well enough, but the hyperbole in that blurb is unreal.

I get we're trying to sell books, but let's be realistic.

Frank and Gerard have already read and approved the book. Frank was interviewed for the book post band mortum so, it should be legit. Really looking forward to reading it.

I agree with the Nirvana statement. That band have dominated alternative culture over the past ten years just like Nirvana did in the decade before. Slipknot would be the heavy flip-side to that.

Was curious about that. Had a galley sent to me but haven't had time to read it yet.
