My Chemical Romance confirm new album

via NME, September 18, 2010

My Chemical Romance have revealed details of their long-awaited fourth album.

As has been speculated, the album will be titled ‘Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys’ and released later this autumn.

The band have posted a teaser trailer at Mychemicalromance.com. The Tarantino-style clip sees the band listening to a pirate radio broadcast and dressed in biker gear, with Gerard Way sporting bright red hair.

The clip then goes on to flash slogans “Art is the weapon / against life as a symptom / defend yourself / the aftermath is secondary”.

The album was planned for release earlier in the year, with tracks previewed including ‘Bullet Proof Heart’ and ‘Black Dragon Fighting Society’. Way had promised a “stripped down” new direction, but the band went back to work on the record again following the departure of Bob Bryar.

Dearest Friends,

Before we rip the curtain off of this new album, let’s have a little bit of fun. One thing we can’t help but notice, is just how unbelievably artistically talented you all are. People send us video clips and CD’s all the time of them performing our songs in every imaginable way. Be it solo, full band, acoustic, electric, electro, interpretive dance…we’ve seen just about everything, and it never ceases to amaze and inspire us.

We thought it would be awesome to finally showcase the best of the best of these videos, and reward you handsomely. From now until June 14th, we will be accepting entries for the very first My Chemical Romance YouTube cover contest. All you need to do is video tape yourself covering your favorite MCR song in whichever style you feel and follow the instructions below to enter the contest. We will review the entries and announce the champion and future owner of a signed guitar while showcasing some of our favorite entries.

Warm up those fingers and vocal chords! The sky’s the limit really, think outside the box and show em how it’s done.

Love you guys, we will catch up soon!

Mikey
