My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way Shares A Bunch Of Unreleased Solo Tracks

If you’re still spewing about My Chemical Romance‘s return to Australia for Download Festival being cancelled due to COVID-19, well we’ve got something to ease the pain.

Frontman Gerard Way has uploaded four rough cuts of unreleased solo tunes to SoundCloud, with the uploads following recent speculation that MCR could be set to drop new music soon.

The uploads came with a statement from Way on his Instagram, which explained that he felt the need to share music during uncertain times.

“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,” he wrote.

The tunes are titled as follows; ”Welcome To The Hotel’, ‘Success!’ ‘Crate Amp_2’ and ‘Phone It In (2) VOC’.

“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,” he continued on Instagram.

“I’m just winging it, keeping it casual.”

In addition, the post included a photo of Way’s vocal chords.

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.

Hopefully this is a sign that the band are working on music too.

MCR’s last studio single came in 2014 with ‘Fake Your Death’ on the band’s greatest hits compilation titled May Death Never Stop You.
