After all the hype over his recent engagement announcement, Gerard Way has shared with Kerrang! magazine that his band, My Chemical Romance plan to start working on a new album, the follow-up to The Black Parade. “It feels like it’s about the right time to be making a new record,” says Way. “Maybe that’s because ‘The Black Parade’ was talked about for so long before it was released, but it feels like that album’s been out for a long time now. It’s only been eight months but we’re already on our fourth single and we’ve played a lot of shows. ‘The Black Parade’ was the kind of record that you make but don’t necessarily have a burning desire to perform because its creation was almost the point,” he adds. “It was such an intense experience to make it, that there was almost a feeling of wanting to move on as soon as we released it. It was so artistically ambitious that it made us want to keep on creating.”

As details are released will keep you posted with the latest.

    wicked, i hope its as good as the others.. well its mcr so of course it’ll be good!! contrary to the other comment, i hope its not like bullets and revenge or Black Parade, i hope its completely different!! like still mcr sounding, but you know, different! because thats what i like about my chem is how all their songs are really individual and dont sound the same!
    Bobs brilliant

    YAAAY!!! THis makes me happier than I was when I heard about the Black Parade tour coming to my town! I Hope that a lot of the songs are like Revenge and bullets but some are like completly different because to tell you the truth, I didn’t like th black parade as much as their old stuff. It was good but not AS good. I did like Gerards vocals a lot more in songs like “I never told you what I do for a living” and “dead” was good too. But in a lot of their hits I thought that thier bass line was way to “Uncreative.

    umm…….where did this come from?
    I don’t mean to be a bitch…I mean…I’d absolutely love for another album from My Chem…but…
    A)Why would they do it so soon?
    B)They love performing “The Black Parade” album……….
    idk….call me skeptical…but I don’t believe it

    fucking brilliant guys

    i agree with lisa. every my chem allbum has their unique sound. i hope this one does too. i still find three cheers my favourite but that doesnt mean i want another album like it.

    maybe something along the lines of the b-tracks to black parade. like the ones found on the singles, “heaven help us”, “kill all your friends”, and also “my way home is through you”. i love those songs cept they sound different to the songs on black parade, yet have some my chem feel.

    all in all its great news, at least theyre doing wat they love and doing it well without giving into the poisonous world of crap music

    Wow! i didn’t believe it at first, but i guess they’re gonna. I can’t wait! I really hope it’s sumthing completely different from bullets, revenge and tbp. But all in all, you know it’s gonna be good (it’s MCR, duh?) Maybe they will put the tracks on the b-side on thisn album. It would also be awesoem if they put the desert song on it too

    My goodness, these guys need a break! They’ve basically been working for six straight years!!! They’re going to shorten their life expectancies if they keep going at this rate!!!!!!!!!

  17. Erin said on July 3rd, 2007 at 9:14 am:

    That rocks so hard I can’t even breathe! I love MCR, and it’s cool that they are making another album.It should be unique and different then all of the others, but still have that mcr sound and creativity. But, why wouldn’t it?I’m so happy for Gerard also, if he’s happy, i’m happy! haha. Good luck to Gerard,Mikey,Frank,Ray and Bob. I am sure that they will do great. I am looking forward to the new album!

    P.S. Um… Erin? Do you know that Gerards engagement was canceled as of July 1st? The poor guy… He must be more depressed than his music right now.

  24. Sammmm said on July 27th, 2007 at 4:33 pm:

    Well done to mcr, you have made 3 amazing albumns and loads more amazing songs,
    your songs have helped me through tough times so i thank you for that,

    i appreciate your music so much so cant wait for the new albumn!!


  25. Marlon said on August 1st, 2007 at 1:14 pm:

    OMG That’s great. Hmmm. I think the reason why they got kinda bored of the Black Parade is because it was so… specific. It dictated a certain imagery and a certain story that’s hardly open to interpretation (save for whether the Patient dies or not). Like, you can hardly change things up within the Black Parade.

    Well, I’m really excited for this new album. It’ll be sure to be great. =]

  26. Lauzie said on August 11th, 2007 at 8:53 am:

    At last! It will be amazing. I was wondering whether they’d make a new album. I’m sure it’ll be brilliant! Keep up the good work My Chem, and don’t give up on your hopes for the future of the new album, or the future of your band!!

  27. Pency Prep said on September 11th, 2007 at 3:36 pm:

    Does any one have any more recent news on the new albumn?
    Ive been trying to look but cant find anything,
