I randomly saw He's My Brother, She's My Sister with Edward Sharpe last year and was so impressed by them that I managed to sneak at Tycho's show to see the band at again at the 400 Bar.

The news broke yesterday that My Chemical Romance is no longer a band.
The brief message from their website:
The band officially didn't release anything since 2010, however there was supposed to be a new fifth MCR album which was being worked on as of February 2013.
My Jerusalem is from Austin, by the way of New Orleans, not Israel. They formed fairly recently, as of 2009, but got great buzz from SXSW (naturally) and CMJ.
Their new record called Preachers is the follow-up to their debut 2010 album, Gone For Good. Singer/songwriter Jeff Klein commented that the new record is "dark": "So much had changed since Gone For Good. We’d all kind of been through hell and back again in different ways, and this was the natural artistic result of all of that. But I think it’s a beautiful, comforting darkness. It’s real, but not selfish."
Check out their new single, "Mono", at Soundcloud.com and on YouTube.
MY FIRST TOOTH
Today (March 23rd) is the last date on the My First Tooth and Frontier Ruckus tour.
I wasn't given a biography on the band, it would seem like they're from England somewhere. From my understanding, and according to Amazon, that My First Tooth's two albums came out February and March of this year. Quite fast releases for both Territories and Love Makes Monsters.
Pronounced like "the minors"? That's the idea I got from looking at their cover artwork to their album, Black Lung.
The Connecticut hip-hop duo, The My.N.O.R.S recently released a debut single, "What They Don't Know", taken from Black Lung.
