Even seven years since their hiatus sent shockwaves through their fanbase, My Chemical Romance (MCR) remains one of the most creative and beloved groups in rock music. So, in celebration of their reunion and to announce their 2020 tour, they have released a 13-minute film directed by Kristian Mercado and produced by creative collective Unicorns & Unicorns. With already 1 million views on YouTube, the just released film, titled "A Summoning…," pays homage to the band’s history by taking fans through a visual retrospective of MCR’s storied past.      

Concepted by frontman Gerard Way and Brian Schechter (Riot Squad) with input from Mercado and the Unicorn’s team, the video features a boy being chased by a masked crew of Draculoids, running through a series of scenes and scenarios that will be familiar to fans of the band’s past work. My Chemical Romance Easter eggs are subtly placed throughout as a gift to loyal followers, adding a layer of intrigue to the otherwise tense and suspenseful narrative.
