One of my most recent MCR-related answers:
Does it worry or excite you the My Chem is saying they going a different direction then their old music? I mean yeah, most of their records are very distinct, but in an AP interview I believe it was Gerard who said 'our old fans will not like it.'
It's very easy, since My Chemical Romance's previous work is so phenomenal, to get caught up in wishing they would make the same album over and over, but they never have and it has always been fine in the past. They've always done everything beautifully, but I don't necessarily think that's purely musical.
No matter what they do, they do it with heart. They put every ounce of what they have into every album they put out and they absolutely believe in their band and the many directions they have taken as a band.
When MCR do put out the new album, I guarantee that they put everything they had into it and that it is them and not them masquerading for a new audience or for wider airplay.
They're not changing to be anything they're not. They're growing. If the next step in MCR's growth as a band is something that is unlike their previous material, you can be assured that it is 100% honest.
They don't bullshit. They are what they are and do what they feel is right. I think that's very important.
I believe in them, and I believe whatever comes out of them will be great.
I just have a feeling... I feel it when I read interviews and see what they have to say about the album. It feels like they believe in this album so much, and like they think we (their fans) will too. I think it's a very united sort of thinking that's going on.
It's like it's My Chem and My Chem fans VS the world, and we will not dare accept losing as an option.
"You can leave this world/Leave it all behind/We can steal this car if your folks don't mind/We can live forever if you've got the time..."
- from 'Save Yourself, I'll Hold them Back,' a song from MCR's upcoming album.
