Gerard Way Announces Fall Tour
Wed, 27 Aug 2014 11:12:20
Good news, My Chem fans. Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, who was revered in the '00s, will hit the road for a string of U.S. tour dates in October, performing songs from his upcoming solo debut album, Hesitant Alien, which will be released on September 30 by Warner Bros. Records.
A little insight into the album? Way wrote about things he knew, nodding to "struggle, beginnings, finding a newness in the mundane and the abstract. I looked to the Brit pop poets like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn, drawing upon everyday life. I also experimented with the abstract, and looked at Frank Black's work both with The Pixies, and as a solo artist. There was no concept and no call-to-arms."
Check out "No Shows" below. It's jangly and angular, and awesome.
