It's been six years since My Chemical Romance hung up their boots and called it a day. But what exactly have each of them been up to in the mean time? Let us take you on a journey. 

GERARD WAY
WELL, Gerard has been very busy indeed. In 2014 he made blue suits even more iconic than they already are when he launched his debut solo album 'Hesitant Alien'. 

A mash-up of brit-pop, post-punk and indie, tunes like 'No Shows' still get stuck in our head on the daily. 



Away from music Gerard has also continued to build his Umbrella Academy based empire alongside writing a new comic for DC called Doom Patrol. 

Speaking of The Umbrella Academy - last month the Netflix adaptation of Gerard's comic book series hit the streaming service to rave reviews. Check out the official trailer below:

And now he's back into making music, following the release of his Halloween single 'Baby You're A Haunted House' last October.

His plan was to release one new song each month, but progress has slowed since the release of The Umbrella Academy. Gerard's a busy, busy guy.


FRANK IERO
Frank has been SO busy that it feels like he has never really been away. 

2014 saw the inception of frnkiero andthe cellabration. They released a cracking album called '.STOMACHACHES.'



Then the name of the band changed to Frank Iero And The Patience and they released 'Parachutes' in 2016.



2016 also saw Death Spells, a project that Frank set up with The Get Up Kids' keyboardist James Dewees, FINALLY released their debut album 'Nothing Above, Nothing Below' through Hassle Records

FFO: Glitches, Lasers, Dancing using just your arms.

Which brings us up to earlier this week when Frank launched the latest iteration of his band Frank Iero And The Future Violents, announced he's signed to Australian independent label UNFD and dropped the first video from the band's upcoming album 'Barriers'. It's been a big week for Frank Iero.

Oh and he continues to be an absolute savage over on Twitter Dot Com. 

 


MIKEY WAY 
Mikey fucking Way started his own band called Electric Century back in 2014. 

They released their debut album 'For The Night To Control' in 2016. 



Mikey also played bass on Waterparks' EP 'Cluster'.

Yeah, really!


RAY TORO
Ray has been popping up all over the place with his guitar. 

He joined Reggie And The Full Effect, with Frank on bass, for their '13 album 'No Country For Old Musicians'.



He also lending his skills to Aurolio Voltaire's 'Raised By Bats' in 2014. 



It wasn't until 2016 that he released his own solo album called 'Remember The Laughter':

And earlier this year he collaborated with Gerard Way on a cover of Simon and Garfunkle's 'Hazy Shade Of Winter', especially for the soundtrack of The Umbrella Academy. It's brilliant stuff.
