To that end, what are your hopes for the new album?
All I want is a great first showing, and then I want to follow it up right away. I’ve started to write again, I can cut a song tomorrow. And I think there’s a similar spirit going on with what [guitarist] Frank [Iero]’s starting to do now that we’re not in My Chem anymore. He’s just going and cutting songs at Third Man, and I know he’s always wanted to do that, so to see him do that makes me really happy. So, for me, the goal now is to always be making. I don’t want to be in a situation where it’s this heavily scrutinized piece of art that takes three years to come out, because of the market testing and the focus grouping. I’m not interested in any of that. The goal is to start a new machine, just get it going, play a lot of shows, meet a lot of interesting people, pull the mask off a little.

the worst part about a broken up band being your favorite is that, no matter what, you’ll never ever be able to see them live. you’ll never get to see what each member’s stage presences are like, you’ll never get to hear your favorite song live, you’ll never get to get your merch signed by each member of the band or tell them how much you love their music.
This is why the my chem fan base is so sad.
gerard wAy more like gerard wHy the fuck did mcr break up so soon
So, it was time. Can the same be said about ending My Chemical Romance?
It was the right time for My Chemical Romance to end. In my mind, it was becoming really dark, because I started to feel that’s what people wanted from the band, based off the experience of Danger Days. I think it was a little bit like, “Let’s fall into a comfortable zone,” where it’s just a uniform now, a brand. You know, “Let’s tweak the brand.” That’s where it was kind of going. And the amount of art I planned for the last My Chem record, it was like Danger Days was getting a little out of hand. It was getting to the point where I felt like I was starting to make giant art projects because I wasn’t enjoying making music as much. Danger Days was the first record where it started to feel like that.
When we eventually released Conventional Weapons, it was interesting because, when we made that, it represented our attempt at trying to be a proud American band, and pushing that with the music. It ended up not working for me, and what didn’t work about it was that our influences were largely British. So, it was almost like celebrating becoming a large band, a large machine that played sheds and stuff like that. It wasn’t so much celebrating it, it was embracing it. To me, Conventional Weapons is the audible sound of people embracing their American largeness. And, like I said, that didn’t work for me.
