We feel this will be the proper album MCR fans deserve!
My Chemical Romance has revealed that they're working on a new album, confirming that they are writing new songs "every day."
They admit that last year's album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys wasn't the band's best work.
Frontman Gerard Way explained that after the success of their third album The Black Parade, they suffered from burnout and after losing drummer Bob Bryar, they scrapped 28 songs before finally agreeing on the work that was released on Danger Days. He says:
"Something didn't feel right. It was a record that went against everything about the band that was great. Which was like having ambition, being ambitious, being visual, being artists, being excited, being free, reckless and rock 'n' roll. That stuff was gone and what was in its place was really boring."
But he says their new album is a totally different story, adding:
"We're writing music every day at the moment, which was something that wasn't happening on Black Parade. The thing is that the band was in a really unhealthy place when Black Parade ended and now the band is in such a healthy place that there's no more 'I want to run away' or 'It's about me'.
Now it's like this is what I do and I want to do this for the rest of my life. Everybody's so happy."
Good!! The emotional state of the band totally reflects in the music. We are definitely looking forward to hearing the new album.
