My Chemical Romance target Reading

My Chemical Romance have revealed they want to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2008.

Bassist Mikey Way said the band already have the August bank holiday rock weekender firmly in their sights.

They headlined Download earlier this year and are now keen to play a third Carling Weekend in four years.

Way told Gigwise: "I don't know if we're actually playing it or not or if we're going to be on tour but I'd love to do Reading and Leeds. If the opportunity arose I'd be more than happy, that's a legendary festival." 

Other early rumours for next year's Carling Weekend include Rage Against The Machine, Babyshambles and Tapes'N'Tapes.
