My Chemical Romance made a dramatic return last night (October 23), debuting a clutch of songs from their new album in London.

The New Jersey-born rock stars unveiled their new style at Hammersmith Apollo with singer Gerard Way debuting his new bright red hair, appearing as his new alias Party Poison. The group also unveiled their new drummer Mike Pedicone, formerly of Arizona hardcore band The Bled.

Opening the show with new single 'Na Na Na', the band went on to preview three more new songs, the driving punk jam 'Planetary (Go!)', the anthemic 'The Only Hope For Me Is You', and the epic 'The Kids From Yesterday', which closed the show.

My Chemical Romance are preparing to release their fourth album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' next month. These are their first shows since the departure of drummer Bob Bryar, although the band have yet to announce a permanent replacement.

Many of the audience, who Way had adopted as 'Killjoys', were dressed up in outfits inspired by the Mad Max style video to 'Na Na Na'.

My Chemical Romance played:

'Na Na Na'
'Thank You For The Venom'
'Desolation Row'
'Planetary (Go!)'
'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)'
'Give 'Em Hell, Kid'
'I Don’t Love You'
'You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison'
