An interview has come out today that Gerard Way has begun making a very unexpected solo album. This album will have a Brit-Pop feel to it, rather than the semi expected sound that My Chemical Romance kept for most of their career. Gerard has said its going to be a fight here in the US, and a fight in the UK for difference reasons. He appears to be very excited to express the influences he has never been able to express in other projects.
He said he did not know what he was going for, but he did know he was going for all new things. This included a whole new way of recording for himself. Feel free to watch the interview below that was done with Enemy.com
He has already released one song, after playing live in Leeds, UK. The reactions did throw many fans off, and the influences he talks about in the interview do seem to match up with this new sound.
Surely, Gerard is correct about this being a fight. Most 'Killjoys' in the world want nothing more than My Chem to reunite, or simply for one of them to continue on with that sound. If that is ever going to happen, it is certain that it will not be any time soon. All the members are branching out into new things, and seem to be very excited on the matter.
Do you share their excitement, or are you dreading the changes? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
