My Chemical Romance May Release Scrapped Album

The My Chemical Romance album recorded right after Black Parade, and then scrapped, may see the light of day.

Guitarist Frank Iero spoke to RockAAA about the album that they put together before Danger Days.

The band were ready to release the follow-up to their emo smash The Black Parade, even picking singles and doing photo shoots, before they decided to ditch the album and start again.

Iero told RockAAA, “At some point it would be nice for some of them to see the light of day but there is no plan for that at the moment,” he said. “Right now they 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’.”

Their other guitarist Ray Toro added, “There are definitively songs that I miss on that record and that was probably the hardest part when we started writing Danger Days as we started to realise that some of the songs we had written didn’t necessarily fit anymore.”

They were about 30 songs in on the album before they started on the songs that eventually became last year’s Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys

Toro said, “And once we finished ‘Sing’ I think that was the defining moment and we knew we liked them better than the 20 or 30 songs we had finished so we had to ask ourselves what we were doing.”
