So says Gerard Way at least anyway!

It's been widely reported that My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way confirmed that his band will be headlining a UK festival this Summer.

The singer made the announcement when onstage at Wembley Arena this past Saturday (February 12).

In reality this means a two horse race between Download and Reading & Leeds with most people presuming that the band will be playing the latter and not the former. Good news is we won't need to wait long to find out where MCR will be topping the bill. Download are expected to announce more acts later this month and Reading & Leeds should be confirming the initial line-up at some point in March.
