NME TV set for My Chemical Romance weekend (Nov 20-21)

Gerard Way interview to be broadcast as part of schedule

Saturday and Sunday (November 20-21) is My Chemical Romance weekend on NME TV.

Over the two days a new interview with frontman Gerard Way will be broadcast (watch a preview on the right) as well as band videos being shown in various formats, including a head-to-head with Green Day.

Speaking in the NME TV interview, Way talked about the band’s new album, ‘Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys’.

“It’s not a concept record, there’s no story,” he explained. “There’s nothing to read into like that. I find the songs to be extremely direct.”

He added: “Even though you have [character] Dr D checking in with you, he’s just painting this picture of a world, and that’s what the record does… but there’s no concept for this album. Its origins were rooted in a comic I was working on with a friend of mine. The things I wanted to say in that comic were things I wanted to say in the band.”
