Gerard Way says he’s written a “kind of heavy” new song called ‘I Am The Hag’

It follows 'Baby You’re A Haunted House’

Gerard Way is teasing a new song called ‘I Am The Hag’, which he describes as “kind of heavy”.

The former My Chemical Romance frontman shared his collaborative track with former bandmate Ray Toro ‘Getting Down The Germs’ back in November. In October, he shared spooky single ‘Baby You’re A Haunted House’.

Now Way could be releasing new material. Writing his end-of-year thoughts on his website alongside a picture of a creepy mask, Way said: “2018 was a dark year full of black magic in my opinion, so it got me thinking about witches again.


“I was inspired to buy this mask because I had just written a song called I Am The Hag, which I haven’t finished yet. It’s kind of heavy. Maybe I’ll release it in 2019.”

Way also opened up about his music-making process. “Almost every Friday this year I got to make music again, which was great,” he said.

“Ended up with quite the collection of demos and even got to start releasing music again toward the end of the year. Glad music was playing a role in my life again, as I had been spending the last two years writing comics and working on television.”

Way also shared a sketch from his comic series and upcoming Netflix show The Umbrella Academy. “Here is a sketch I did for Gabriel to use as a guide for the first cover of Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion. This cover had been in my head for years, and I am fairly certain I sketched this out a couple other times, as it took us a long time to put this series out.

“Gabriel and I were very happy to get back to Umbrella Academy and finish our story, and the plan is to try and have maybe 3 month gaps between each new volume, of which there are 8 planned total.”


The show is set to debut on the streaming service on February 15, 2019.
