Published Jan 21, 2014Arena-filling pop-punks My Chemical Romance announced their breakup a year ago this March, and they will acknowledge the occasion by chronicling their career with a best-of compilation. May Death Never Stop You will be out through Reprise Records on March 25.
The album includes songs from all four of the group's full-lengths, plus three cuts from the band's formative attic demos, and the previously unreleased track "Fake Your Death." This is one of the last songs the band ever worked on in the studio.
There's also a two-hour-long visual component containing outtakes from My Chemical romance's music videos.
The album will be released in several formats: digitally (with or without the visual element), on CD (with or without a DVD), on double-vinyl with a DVD, and in a deluxe package with a T-shirt and a black funeral armband. The deluxe package is available to pre-order here.

The band members said in a joint statement, "The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us. We hope you take the journey with us into MCR's past, and enjoy the small taste of what might have been."
