For the first time in over a decade, My Chemical Romance‘s 2004 sophomore full-length and major label breakthrough ‘Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge’ has re-entered the album charts.
As it approaches its 15th anniversary, the album (which spawned the singles ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’, ‘Helena’, and ‘The Ghost Of You’) has placed itself at the #191 spot on the Billboard 200 Chart – its first time on there since 2005.
According to Billboard‘s stats, the full-length’s peak position following its release in 2004 was number #28, and it has spent a total of 78 weeks in the charts.
It’s uncertain what has exactly caused this notable surge of interest in ‘Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge’ to result in this, but it’s worth noting that tomorrow (March 22nd 2019) marks the sixth anniversary since the band announced their immediate break-up.
Along with this, Gerard Way has been active with releasing new singles over the past few months and more recently the premiere of Netflix‘s adaptation of his comic book series, The Umbrella Academy.
Guitarist Frank Iero has also been active with his solo project, now going under the monkier of Frank Iero And The Future Violents, having recently announced that a new full-length titled ‘Barriers’ will be dropping on May 31st 2019 via UNFD.
