Gerard Way: I’ll never leave MCR
Gerard Way can ‘never leave or escape’ My Chemical Romance.
The musician is the lead vocalist and co-founder of the alternative rock band from New Jersey. The group are currently in the process of writing material for a new album following the success of their fourth studio record, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
Gerard says My Chemical Romance are more motivated than ever.
‘Fantastic,’ he exclaimed when asked to sum up the feeling in the group.
‘Going on ten years now we love being in the band. It’s something you can never leave or escape or get away from, and that’s a great thing.’
‘The cool thing is we’ve spent a lot of time writing new material on the road this time. We didn’t do that before Danger Days…’ he said.Gerard has enjoyed penning ideas for tracks while touring. The star has felt more creative as he’s learnt to cope with stress better.
‘I think [it’s down to] just not being burnt out. Really enjoying and reconnecting with making music again, just being inspired, whereas after [third album] Black Parade we weren’t inspired to do much at all besides disappear.
