You May Still Get To Hear My Chemical Romance’s Scrapped Album…with a HUGE CATCH
So, before recording and releasing Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, MCR fans will probably remember that the band was working on ANOTHER album. The previous recording was said to be a stripped-down ode to rock and roll.
Of course, we now know that the band scrapped that in favor of the synth-rock-desert-punk-sci-fi-comic sound of Danger Days. So, um, whatever happened to that other album?
Well, according to Frank Iero, MCR’s rhythm guitarist, fans could some day hear the whole thing…but with a major catch.
It would be released when the band splits as their last-ever album.
In an interview with RockAAA, Frank said “Right now [those songs] are just for us but I actually did have this idea when we were making the record. I said ‘I have this great idea that we should record two records and release one and put the other away in the vault so when the band breaks up so it would be the last MCR record ever.'”
He went on to say that so far that’s not the CONFIRMED plan, but is an option.
Of course, for this to happen, that would mean MCR would have to break up. And since the four of them seem to be going pretty strong, it’s doubtful that’ll happen any time in the near future.
So, sorry, MCR fans who wanna hear that original album. You won’t get to hear it until after MCR records and tours on more new material. Probably for at LEAST a couple of years. And MORE strange hair colors for Gerard Way. Poor you.
Only, you know, NOT.
