My Chemical Romance have hinted that 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' may be a watershed for the band after stating it could be their "last big adventure".

Speaking to the Sunday Times, frontman Gerard Way admitted that band scrapped a first attempt at the record after deciding to be "extremely brutal" about which material to include.

"There are songs that, if we'd been talking a year ago, would have been the first and second singles, but now no longer exist. We rewrote the record," Way declared.

The band, who parted with drummer Bob Bryar during the sessions, are due to release the album on November 22.

"This record could be our last big adventure - that's why we had to make it again, that's why we spent the money, that's why we're going to spend more on how it looks than we ever have," Way explained.

The singer also expressed dissatisfaction with the campaign for their last album, 2006's 'The Black Parade', suggesting it turned into a "misery tour".

"I didn't raise enough questions on 'The Black Parade', I just set up a load of bleakness and misinterpretation," he commented.
