Gerard Way talks 'Hesitant Alien': 'I do believe it's rock and roll'

Gerard Way is an outsider of sorts — and he’s okay with that. “I learned to accept my place in music as, I’m extremely different but that’s how I’m needed and that’s why I belong,” Way tells EW. Hence the title of his debut solo album: Hesitant Alien.

After fronting My Chemical Romance for 12 years, Way announced the band’s breakup in 2013 with an essay that hinted at music to come. Now, just about a year and a half later, Way is back on the music scene with Hesitant Alien, an album heavily inspired by Britpop and missing the dramatic darkness of My Chemical Romance albums like their first, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love or their cancer-centered concept album, The Black Parade. “I think I’m trying to push stuff on the radio in a newer direction,” Way says. “Stuff that hasn’t really been on modern rock radio is what I’m going for.” READ FULL STORY

My Chemical Romance announce breakup

It’s a sad day for the Black Parade. After a dozen years and nearly five million albums sold, My Chemical Romance have officially called it quits.

The apparently amicable breakup was announced via a simple statement on the band’s official website:

Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.

On his personal Twitter, frontman Gerard Way said, “Beyond any sadness, what I feel the most is pride,” accompanied by this photo.

Watch My Chemical Romance perform 'Every Snowflake Is Different (Just Like You)' on 'Yo Gabba Gabba': An EW video exclusive!

If you’re anything like us, you’ve been sick of Christmas music for weeks now. Sure, ’tis the season and all, but you can only take so many renditions of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” before you have to crank up some Mastodon to wash it all away.

But as My Chemical Romance has proven, there is still room for some new seasonal tunes. The New Jersey band will be appearing on a special episode of psychedelic kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba!, titled “A Very Awesome Christmas.”

They’ll be performing a tune called “Every Snowflake Is Different (Just Like You),” a bouncy, bombastic little rock tune that wouldn’t have been all that out of place on the band’s woefully underrated 2010 album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

With the band dressed in colorful ski gear, “Every Snowflake Is Different” celebrates uniqueness while also turning up the volume and building a healthy post-emo stomp. You can check out the exclusive video premiere of the band’s performance on the show below. READ FULL STORY
