My Chemical Romance - My Chemical Romance Working On New Album

My Chemical Romance are writing new songs "every day".

The 'Sing' group expect there to be a much shorter period between albums than the four year gap between third album 'The Black Parade' and last year's 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys', as they are planning to return to the studio later this year.

Frontman Gerard Way told Gigwise.com: "We're writing music every day at the moment, which was something that wasn't happening on 'Black Parade'.

"The thing is that the band was in a really unhealthy place when 'Black Parade' ended and now the band is in such a healthy place that there's no more 'I want to run away' or 'It's about me'.

"Now it's like this is what I do and I want to do this for the rest of my life. Everybody's so happy."

The band admitted internal troubles after achieving mainstream success with 'The Black Parade', suffering from burnout and losing drummer Bob Bryar, then scrapping some 28 songs before setting to work on the album which became 'Danger Days'.

Explaining what happened, Gerard said: "Something didn't feel right. It was a record that went against everything about the band that was great.

"Which was like having ambition, being ambitious, being visual, being artists, being excited, being free, reckless and rock 'n' roll.

"That stuff was gone and what was in its place was really boring."
