Emo favourites My Chemical Romance have been announced as the next band to play this summer's Eden Sessions.

The American rock band, whose most famous hits include Welcome To the Black Parade and I'm Not Okay, will be performing on June 16.

It comes as the band visit the UK for three huge shows at the Stadium MK in Milton Keynes.

Tickets are now on sale to Inside Track pass holders and will go on general sale at 5pm on Wednesday, February 19, costing £65 plus a £6.50 booking fee.

The venue described it as "a massive coup" for the venue, the acclaimed USA rockers – whose most famous album is The Black Parade - will play Eden before three huge shows at Stadium MK, Milton Keynes.

Rita Broe, managing director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “It is incredibly exciting to be able to announce a band of this stature. "My Chemical Romance playing our stage this summer promises to be a night no-one lucky enough to be here will ever forget.”

Formed in Newark, New Jersey, My Chemical Romance made their debut in 2002 with the independently released album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.

The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made their major label debut with 2004's Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. The album contained the Platinum hit I'm Not Okay (I Promise), the Gold-certified Helena, and The Ghost of You.

Rolling Stone hailed the three-times Platinum The Black Parade as one of the top albums of 2006. Lead single Welcome to the Black Parade topped both Billboard's Alternative Songs tally and the UK Official Singles chart.

The band toured extensively behind the album - appearing as characters from The Black Parade - and released the live album The Black Parade is Dead! in 2008.

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was released in 2010 and topped Billboard's Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as Conventional Weapons in 2013.

My Chemical Romance is the fifth announcement so far for the Eden Sessions 2020. Also appearing this year are Lionel Richie on June 17 (all tickets sold out), Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on June 23, The Script on July 15 (standard tickets sold out), and Diana Ross on July 21.
