Their long-awaited U.S. comeback tour is just over a week away now, and My Chemical Romance are still adding new dates to the run.

The reunited legends – who hit the UK and Europe in spectacular fashion earlier in the year – have just added a new show, with support from hyperpop duo 100 gecs.

The two groups will be playing the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharatta, Georgia on Sunday, September 18.

Elsewhere on the tour, My Chem will be supported at various dates by: (in alphabetical order) Badflower, Devil Master, Dilly Dally, GHÖSH, Kimya Dawson, Meg Myers, Midtown, Nothing, Shannon and the Clams, Soul Glo, Surfbort, Taking Back Sunday, The Bouncing Souls, The Homeless Gospel Choir, The Lemon Twigs, Thursday, Turnstile, Waterparks and Youth Code.

Last month, guitarist Ray Toro shared some genuinely incredible audio from the band’s UK and European tour.

The 50-second clip – which Ray captioned with a shocked face, which is the exact expression we pulled when hearing it – played out a glorious breakdown of Our Lady Of Sorrows, which is originally taken from 2002’s I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. Fans seem to think that it meant Ray was teasing some sort of My Chem live album, or possibly something to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut…
