I was gonna write a quick blog post about My Chem, but instead this is gonna be a much longer post about the band, everything we know about their upcoming fifth album, and their future in general. Please click below if you’re interested.

thnks fr th mmrs MCR. 
wow this was a pointless blog to write out haha.> .<


  • My Chem have 6 tracks recorded for their 5th album.
  • The members of MCR were NOT allowed release a track recently or be credited as “My Chemical Romance” for “legal reasons”.
  • This is also probably why Gerard used a pseudonym for the solo track he posted. 
  • Warner took over 4 months on a deal for A band (may or may not have been them) to play a festival.
  • Definitely no My Chem tour this year.

Okay I have no idea how to start this off…..The band built a practice space/studio in LA. This is a good thing as it means they don’t have to pay for studio when they do want to record something. After coming back from Australia last year they started writing demos or pre-production or whatever it’s called. Ray posted a lot of photos from the studio, of whiteboards showing a song structure, gear, etc. (check his twitter for them!) They saved the day at Bamboozle 2012 when they decided to play last minute as a replacement, as blink dropped out…..flew in just to play that show and then flew back. Frank was quoted as saying “i think we’re maybe a month from the record button lighting up…”

Personell: Doug McKean is their audio engineer, as he’s been credited, for their past couple of albums. (Speculation) He might (probably?) also be acting as producer for this album, with the band possibly co-producing. Jarrod Alexander will be tracking drums (he’s their touring drummer that started in 2011) while James Dewees is most likely doing keyboard for this one, for the first time. 

The band recorded from June-August 2012, before taking a “short break”. 
In this time they recorded:

  • 6 songs for the fifth album, tentatively referred to as “MCR5” for now.
  • The song “This Song Is A Curse” was recorded by Frank (Jarrod on drums, James on keys, Doug producing/Ray co-producing)
  • “Small Petunia of the Galaxy” which probably isn’t an “MCR” song + should be filed under Gerard Way “solo”.
  • A track for the movie “The Man With The Iron Fists”

Studio time (June-August 2012):
maybe its not a guitar… maybe its like some sort of ghostbox or something” - Frank Iero. They also seemed to be watching a lot of horror movies…River’s Edge vs Dr. Phibes Rises Again ….FIGHT!! Vincent Price was the fucking best, hands down.
Working on a new song July 3rd: @raytoro & i are working on a song in the studio today, apparently inspired by movies about a young girl on a journey of sexual exploration. 
Frank took a break from studio and was in New York on July 11/23rd, so he doesn’t mind flying to/from. (constantly?) Aug 12 as well…
July 17th Doug asked for a sample of the announcement chime from Narita airport. 
From July 28-31st he posted a bunch of photos from studio:

Doug asked for audio samples on August 20th, to be used on a record he’s working on….
I don’t want to be more specific on what type of sounds. Be creative Aug 20, 2012 
I’ll reveal what record and where it’s used to whomever sends usable clips. Aug 19, 2012 
I need sound for a record I’m working on. I’m looking for original sound no music to be used on the record. Send to sound4doug @yahoo.com Aug 19, 2012  

MCR took a “short break” after August to work on other stuff (Gerard had promo with deadmau5 to do, stuff at Morriscon/etc), they HAD planned to get back in December to the studio but this never materialised.

Frank’s track was released September 25th. He stated: This Song Is A Curse was the first thing we finished at the studio we built to record the next My Chem record, so that’s kinda cool.
Frank recorded (probably two) tracks in late September in New Jersey. We’ve got one of those, on his website, his cover of “be my baby”. SHOULD be another one, probably original…that he hasn’t unleashed yet…

The band had wrote/recorded a track “Hell Hath No Fury” that was supposed to be on the soundtrack for the film “The Man With The Iron Fists”. Due to legal issues, this didn’t happen…they also weren’t credited as “My Chemical Romance” in the film credits for the piece, but credited separately - probably because they weren’t allowed use the name “My Chemical Romance”……The full version of the track hasn’t been made available. 

Gerard recorded in December. He released a track he did there “ZeroZeroZero” under the handle “DannyTheStreet” as he’s probably not allowed release anything under his own name, similar reasons to the above….
The track info for this was listed as “Track 3 of 4” so it’s unknown whether the other tracks were just different mixes of the same song, or possibly different songs altogether, from the same session… 

Frank posted his track under his own name as he’s not the lead singer + so wouldn’t have the same clause preventing him from doing so, i think….
When asked by Kevin Smith about the new album, he said it was “dark. very dark” so far, and spoke of wishes to get Colleen Atwood (Tim Burton, The Black Parade, etc) to design costumes for the new album’s theme. 

Ray had a kid.

James Dewees did a bunch of shows in early 2013 with Matt Pryor of the get up kids. Him/Frank announced a new band “Death Spells” who’ll be supporting MSI in April at some of the east coast shows, and who’ll be appearing at Skate+Surf fest in NJ May 18th. Leathermouth will be performing May 19th. So both him/frank are pretty much accounted for, through to May. 
On Jan 11th, MCR’s producer/audio engineer Doug, tweeted that he was “recording bass with @lprock”  As of March 18th, she tweeted that they were still “in the studio recording”. 2 days later, Billboard previewed her album, apparently being produced by Rob Cavallo. [link] “L.P. and Cavallo only began recording her new full-length in early February; as of March 1, 10 tracks were in various states of completion. Cavallo says they need five or six more to finish, hopefully by late spring.
This is relevant as it shows that the recordings that artists make with Doug, may JUST be rough recordings + not planned to be the final copy. Matches up to what Frank said in the Altpress article [here] There are a lot of songs written. Some of them are recorded decently, but its not near completion by any means. 
But then again, MAYBE by “decently” he means “more than demo quality, good enough to be released” as This Song Is A Curse DID come from the same environment + he believed that to be good enough for release… 

Gerard spent time in their studio over christmas with Doug also there, messing around and apparently writing lyrics. 

 Back to the 6 songs they “recorded”, may be full tracks or just demo versions..Kerrang called them demo versions in their recent article though: 
Gerard recently played four of these songs for Mat Devine (of Kill Hannah fame) who he recently visited. When asked about it, Mat said: “It’s incredible. It’s slightly new territory. It’s an evolution. I’ve heard four new songs. It’s exactly in line with what My Chem fans want to hear, but at the same time it really marks what I think is a new phase. Its super-refreshing, but at the same time familar in the way you want it to be.“ 

While visiting Mat Devine, he recorded vocals for a track on Mat’s upcoming solo album “Goldblooded” due out this August. Mat revealed: “The track we worked on is a real daring song. It’s a ballad, a very tender love-song duet intended for a guy and a girl, called Falling In Love Will Kill You. When Gerard and I sing it together, something really crazy happens. The song is also a real statement,” he continues. “I say it’s daring because, as far as I know, I’ve never heard two male singers in a love-song duet. It was one of those things where the minute Gerard got into the [studio’s vocal] booth, everyone startyed high-fiving. It was wonderful, one of those moments that you know you’ll always remember.

James launched a Kickstarter for a new Reggie + The Full Effect album, which is aiming for an October release, so he’s probably planning on recording it over the summer. He also states he’s gonna be on tour for it, until December 2013, so looks like he’s got no plans to hit the road with MCR this year…..

Gerard changed his twitter pic recently to a photo of a guitar pedal. which is weird, and not major news…
Gerard’s also got the Killjoy comic and stuff coming out REALLY soon which he’ll want to promote so this downtime is completely expected. We won’t get an MCR tour,and probably won’t get any new music, this year…but it’ll DEFINITELY be worth the wait when it’s finished!

we WILL get a fifth album, just gonna take longer than most of us would like. 
just look forward to next year, and get saving for the eventual tour! keep.the.faith.
