Jarrod Alexander has been announced as the man to take over the My Chemical Romance drum gig after the sacking of Mike Pedicone.

Alexander, whose CV lists the likes of Death By Stereo and Dead County, will be at the kit for MCR's upcoming shows, although no official announcement has yet been made about a permanent replacement.

Pedicone was booted out of the band late last week amid reports of stealing from the band.
