My Chemical Romance have revealed the first two tracks from their scrapped album 'Conventional Weapons'. Scroll down the page to hear both tracks.

The band put 'Boy Division' and 'Tomorrow's Money' online earlier today (Oct 26). The tracks were recorded in 2009 during the sessions for the band's fourth album, which they then scrapped to instead record 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys'.

'Boy Division' is a fast and furious punk anthem similar in tone to the band's hit single 'I'm Not OK (I Promise)' whilst 'Tomorrow's Money' has an almost spaghetti Western sound with distorted vocals and singer Gerard Way singing "While you keep screaming for revolution, Me and my surgeons and my streetwalking trends, We got no heroes ‘cause our heroes are dead".



As previously announced, these two songs will be followed in coming weeks by more material. On November 23, the next release will be a song by the name of 'AMBULANCE' along with a B-Side titled 'Gun'. Then, on December 18, a track called 'The World Is Ugly', with a B-Side named 'The Light Behind Your Eyes' will emerge.

In 2013, the band will put out a track titled 'Kiss The Ring' on January 8, with a new song named 'Make Room!!!!!' also coming out. Finally, on February 5, a track titled 'Surrender The Night' and a B-Side named 'Burn Bright' will come out.

Speaking about the tracks, My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has said: "Beginning in October we will be releasing two songs a month for five months. 10 songs in total from the Conventional Weapons sessions we did back in 2009. We hope you enjoy these time capsules, and that they may shed a little more light on how and where 'Danger Days' came from."

He continued: "And maybe even where the future of MCR might be heading. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... and now it is finally time to lift the veil on 'Conventional Weapons'."
