My Chemical Romance: ‘Our ‘lost album’ will come out when we split’

Band say songs will 'see the light of day' somehow

My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has said that the band plan to release their ‘lost album’ – but only when they split up.

The band released new album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys’ last November, but only after scrapping their first attempt at making the record.

Now Iero has said that he wants the unreleased material to be their epitaph.

“I did have this idea when we were making the record,” he told Rockaaa.com. “I said, ‘I have this great idea that we should record two records and release one and put the other away in the vault so when the band breaks up so it would be the last My Chemical Romance record ever’.”

He added: “It would be nice for some of them [the lost songs] to see the light of day but there is no plan for that at the moment.”

The New Jersey band picked up two awards at the Shockwaves NME Awards 2011 last Wednesday (February 23).
