My Chemical Romance unveil album secrets

Gerard Way to talk through 'The Black Parade'

My Chemical Romance reveal the hidden secrets behind their world conquering third album ‘The Black Parade’ in this week’s NME (on newsstands nationwide from November 8).

Frontman Gerard Way gives the full inside story on the mysterious Patient, MCR‘s theatrical alter egos, the man behind their concept album, their gothic bandmaster uniform and Liza Minnelli‘s guest spot on ‘Mama’.

Speaking about their collaboration with the child of Hollywood royalty Way said: “To me, Liza‘s was the only voice that could have portrayed Mother War. Someone very strong, someone that had loved and lost, someone that had been through so much in her life and survived. There was no-one that could beat her.”
