My Chemical Romance Plans to Start Recording New Album in Fall
While currently headlining the 2011 Honda Civic Tour with Blink-182, My Chemical Romance announced at the August 20 show in Chicago that they plan to start recording a new album in the fall. A fan on AbsolutePunk wrote: “Last night at the Honda Civic Tour, My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way announced that they wouldn't be back in Chicago for quite a while because they're going to record a new album after this tour.”
There’s no word when the follow-up to Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys will be released. Based on the creative process and ever-changing ideas behind Danger Days, however, the follow-up could take a few years to make it to stores.
Danger Days came out at the end 2010 and took more than two years to complete. Although a follow-up to Welcome to the Black Parade, Danger Days is specifically a non-concept album, unlike the three preceding releases. In a December 2008 interview with MTV News, bassist Mikey Way said: "You know, we've made concepts for three albums now, so I think this one — at least from my standpoint — I want to go into it not thinking about a definite story. I said that during ‘Parade,’ but I still think I had something to work out. I think I had to get it out of my system, as far as writing concept records. I had to at least do one more before I stopped doing them. Obviously, they'll always be cohesive though. The songs need to fit together, that's what makes a great album."
Announced in May, My Chemical Romance would be joining Blink-182 to do 40 North American dates for the 2011 Civic Tour, which also includes Manchester Orchestra and Rancid on the bill. In addition, the band is headlining the upcoming Reading and Leeds Festivals.
