Gerard Way Of My Chemical Romance Shares Four Previously Unheard Solo Recordings

Monday, 06 April 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Gerard Way has shared four previously unheard solo recordings.

Introducing Phone It In, Crate Amp, Success! and Welcome To The Hotel via Instagram, the My Chemical Romance vocalist said:

"Hey all, with all this uncertainty I just wanted to start uploading some unreleased stuff. Just so people can check it out and have something to listen to. Just felt like sharing. I think I have a bunch of this stuff, as Doug and I have been recording little bits here and there over the years. Some of these, like Phoning It In, were things that I planned on releasing as singles, and I may still do that at some point when I finish them, but I figured why not. It feels good to share. Who knows if some of this stuff would have ever come out?

"Oh yeah, the music is on my soundcloud, which I haven’t really used in ages. The link is in my linktree, along with a link to the Covid-19 Response Fund.

"In case you are wondering, this is a picture of my vocal cords, from when I went to see the ear/nose/throat doc before embarking on this my chem journey, to make sure everything was in order. He said, “It’s a little red, but looking good”. I’m calling all of this stuff Distraction Or Despair, since that seems to be the two things I keep shifting between. Probably a lot of other people too. But I think only some of the tracks are tied to an “album” of that name. I’m just winging it, keeping it casual. May add some notes to the tracks.

"Hope everyone is safe and healthy. Rock on."

Accompanying each cut is an in-depth description of how it came together, with Way explaining it was largely thanks to the help of Doug McKean, who produced and engineered his 2014 solo debut 'Hesitent Alien' and engineered the last two My Chemical Romance albums, 2006's 'The Black Parade' and 2010's 'Danger Days'. 

My Chemical Romance reunited late last year for a show in Los Angeles and earlier this year confirmed reunion concerts across the world, including UK and Ireland dates for this summer. However, their performances in Australia, New Zealand and Asia had to be pulled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
