Dear Everyone,

Now that the dust has settled and we are healing and moving forward, we felt it best to explain to everyone to some degree what has happened to MCR in the past week. There are tons of rumors and allegations floating around and we want to clear it all up for you. We also want to express our gratitude for the concern, care, and understanding all of our fans and friends have shown us in the past week. Here are the facts for you all and please know that none of the injuries sustained were permanent nor intentional and it really proves that sometimes these things happen and every person should truly value what they have. Last week, while shooting a new video for our new record, 2 of us sustained some damage more than we normally would have. Gerard tore multiple ligaments in his ankle and Bob received a bad burn to the back of his leg. These injuries were sustained on Thursday evening. On Friday morning we drove to San Diego to prepare for our performance at Street Scene that we were very excited about. After seeing doctors, we decided to give it our all and rehearse on Friday night. This proved impossible. The pain was overwhelming and we could not pull through without further injuring ourselves. We hate canceling shows, especially now that we are done recording and just want to play. So there you have it, there were no car wrecks, monster attacks or alien abductions, but there were serious injuries that required this to be the way. We apologize for it coming down so last minute and never wished it to end up that way. We promise to be back in San Diego this year. We miss you all and will see you soon,


Street Scene Cancellation

As you all may already be aware of MCR backed out of the Street Scene performance yesterday, but there is a reasonable explanation. According to multiple sources who were at Street Scene, MCR was there, but they were unable to perform due to Gerard and Bob both injuring themselves on set of their new music video. Gerard is reported to have broken his ankle, while Bob suffered possible third degree burns to the back of his legs, neck and hands. So please keep the guys (all of them) in your thoughts and wish them a speeding recovery. Get better soon guys! (much love from Diligence, but mostly from Lee <3 <3 <3 <3 ) [sources:, AOL Music]
