My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way has said he "can never leave or escape" his band.

According to Music-News, the frontman claimed he and his bandmates were more inspired than ever and were no longer on the verge of exhaustion or suffering from burnout.

He said:

Going on 10 years now we love being in the band. It's something you can never leave or escape or get away from, and that's a great thing.

Way also said that the band were enjoying working on the follow-up to their 2010 album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys', adding: "The cool thing is we've spent a lot of time writing new material on the road this time. We didn't do that before 'Danger Days…''.

"I think [it's down to] just not being burnt out," he continued. "Really enjoying and connecting with making music again, just being inspired, whereas after [their third album] 'The Black Parade' we weren't inspired to do much at all besides disappear."

Last week (February 1), the band's guitarist Frank Iero insisted that their new LP wouldn't be "just a collection of songs" and said that they were eager to release another concept-heavy album. Previously, Iero has also hinted that My Chemical Romance's new album could be released this year
