MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE DISBAND

My Chemical Romance announced today that they are disbanding. A message from the band posted on www.mychemicalromance.com states:

 "Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would.  We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible.  We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end.  Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure."

DANNY AVILA – MIAMI MUSIC WEEK & SPRING BREAK, MARCH 2013

Capping off an incredible spring season on the road, Danny Avila announces his final run of dates for March 2013, with not one but two massive Ultra Music Festival performances – including his official UMF Main Stage debut this Sunday which should prove to be an absolutely electric affair!

LISTEN TO DANNY AVILA'S ULTRA WEEKEND 1 SET HERE FOR A TASTER OF WHAT'S TO COME AT ULTRA WEEKEND 2!!! https://soundcloud.com/dannyavila/danny-avila-ultra-music

Danny heads back to the Americas barely giving himself enough time to take a breath after the whirlwind success of the recent Generation Wild Tour. The mammoth three week electronic extravaganza saw him hit the road with Deniz Koyu, dBerrie and Mikael Weermets plus celebrity bad boy photographer Kirillwashere – including a huge date that blew the doors off NYC’s iconic Webster Hall.

Kicking things off at Puerto Valleta’s Strana in Mexico for Spring Break, Danny then travelled up to Schlitterbahn Waterpark on South Padre Island in the States before hitting Miami to make the first of his two UMF sets. After stopping by the Elektro Magazine Freshmen ’13 Pool Party at the National Hotel, it was a short air ride to the Inception Festival in Cancun and then straight back to hit the Generation Wild Tour at SL Southbeach. Coming up, the No Sugar Added Festival at Nikki Beach, the Ibiza Collective Pool Party at the Delano and finally his hotly-anticipated Main Stage appearance at UMF round a truly spectacular Miami 2013 off.

Fans everywhere will be able to catch up with all the action in coming weeks when Danny launches DANNY AVILA TV on his YouTube channel www.youtube.com/dannyavilalive. Already picked as one of the top 10 artists at this year’s Ultra by dance bible Dancing Astronaut and style site Elite Daily, Danny’s star continues to climb on the back of electric live performances, his bi-weekly Ready To Jump radio show on SiriusXM and other stations worldwide and music releases including his original Big Beat production ‘Breaking Your Fall’ and the Skylar Grey ‘C’mon Let Me Ride’ remix released through Interscope.  With new music in the pipeline including a forthcoming mix compilation for Ministry of Sound, and a slew of huge dates around the world already confirmed for summer 2013, the future looks increasingly bright for Avila.
