'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' - My Chemical Romance OUT NOW! [A look back at the Journey]

Looking for a review?
My Danger Days... album review from the California listening party on November 9.

It's been more than 4 years since The Black Parade, and we made it! I am absolutely, heart-stranglingly proud to support My Chemical Romance and to have been able to write about the creation of this masterpiece through every step, misstep, stumble and take-off leading to today's beautiful apex! Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys is out now!

Danger Days: The Creation as told through my blog...

I guess the lead-up to today's release kind of started in early 2009 with the release of "Desolation Row" for Watchmen. After the men of MCR had been on a break since Spring of 2008, fans were able to get a brief glimpse of them immersed in the comic world the band has always so loved.

Within a month, reports were coming out that MCR were officially writing the new album, then suddenly they were doing interviews with MTV about their stripped-back new material, then - BAM - all of the sudden MCR was going to be playing Summer Sonic by August of 2009?! Whoa!

By May, the band had announced that they were recording with producer Brendan O'Brien, which would all change by the end of the journey, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Then suddenly this was happening:


By July, MCR seemed to be back in full-force with two small shows announced at The Roxy leading up to Summer Sonic. It was at those Roxy shows that fans first heard what the new My Chemical Romance could sound like on their upcoming album with then "Death Before Disco," "The Drugs" and "Hail to the King." Oh, and Gerard also announced his upcoming True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys comic in July.

Fast forward to October 2009, when the band first announced they had finished tracking.

By November, the press was hot on this new MCR for which we had all been biting our nails in anticipation. Ray Toro was teasing us to death with track descriptions. The band even appeared on the cover of Alternative Press' Most Anticipated issue, spilling about their album of "self-protest." With all the buzz surrounding the album and talk about Trans-Ams and Blade Runner, fans assumed a seemingly sci-fi straight-up Rock 'N Roll album would be coming their way... and soon.

In early 2010, the band spoke of the album's being a "breath of fresh air" for fans and talked about the urges to "fucking rock" and "escape" in the context of their new tunes.

Around March, fans received two pretty sharp blows. First with the cancellation of the band's Sound Wave Festival appearance, then with the news of long-time drummer Bob Bryar's departure from the band. However, the bad news didn't last long; as, the guys soon announced that they were working on what they called "the new shit god-dammit" and had written, over the past year, 2-and-a-half album's worth of material (I even began documenting all of the known titles of songs. There are plenty). Before we knew it, they were in the "exciting final phase" of recording.

In the midst of this of this finalization of recording, Gerard appeared on the cover of Nylon Guys, and the article revealed that the band had switched to producer Rob Cavallo for the final take of their new album, and Frank Iero's limited edition prints of MCR's recording process started coming out.

In July, everything finally started to become a reality when Warner Music Group tweeted that MCR's album was set for a Fall 2010 released and when Gerard announced the album's completion at Comic-Con!

Then came the mindfuckery! Suddenly, there were shirts with rayguns and space squids popping up everywhere one looked. Gerard tweeted "Look Alive, sunshine...", and - WHAT?! - Why on earth does MCR need a little girl and a man who looks like a lady?

I think all fans are pretty well familiar with what September 2010 brought: Transmissions came first, mind-boggling all of us with its static, beeping and "A Horse With No Name" on KLSK. Soon, Twitter was crawling with many crazy beings like Dr. Death Defying, NewsAGoGo and Agent Cherri Cola who were, somehow, related to MCR. We were baffled, but it would all soon be become much clearer with...



Fans soon came to find that MCR had scrapped the entire first take of the album and that Gerard, after having retreated to the desert, came back to his bandmates with the idea for the Killjoys world and a new direction. The new material is a protest of what they had become by setting boundaries for their art on the first attempt at the album. At last, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was solid and fans could grasp exactly what was going on.

Between September and now is such recent history that I'm sure all of the fans are pretty well familiar with it, but if you would like to look back at how I've documented the 2010 MCR explosion, feel free to:

September | October | November

With the European leg of their "World Contamination Tour" behind them and a North American one set for the Fall, My Chemical Romance are getting busy, Dangerously so, and I promise to keep you updated through it all!

---

Danger Days, it seems like it's been a lifetime, but the wait is over today! Buy yourself a copy, buy a copy for your friend, Make your mom buy you a copy, play it for your Mom! Blow this album sky high; because, MCR absolutely deserves it.

Today, we are attempting to trend #DangerDays on Twitter. If you have an account, contribute by tagging your posts, please?!

My Chemical Romance launch Better Living Industries Website

UPDATE (November 24 @ 11:42 p.m. EST):

I see that there's not much information about BLI out there and a lot of you are finding what you can here. I am pasting the following here from a more extensive informational post I have made about the Killjoys world. I hope this will help:

What is Better Living Industries?

Better Living Industries (Also known as BLI, BL/ind, or BL industries) is the corporation that controls Battery City. The corporation strives to bring about structure in a post-apocalyptic world. It is known for producing emotion-eliminating medications as well as every other manufactured product one can acquire in 2019.

BLI crosses over from the Killjoys world and into real life. The made-up corporation has its own  web site with products that you can actually purchase, a mission statement and a "Zone Report" in both Japanese and English.  Also, MCR takes it a step further by having changed the name under which their music is published to "Better Living Industries Music," which you can see in the liner notes of Danger Days.... BLI also overtakes the edited version of Danger Days..., whiting out the internal album art, taking away the lyrics and putting its smiling face logo (above right) all over it. The Danger Days: California 2019 Edition box set is packaged in a BLI box and the 3-song The Mad Gear & Missile Kid E.P. that comes with it is printed on a disc made to look like a BLI brand CD-R.

Check out some BL/ind commercials and "Fact News" reports.

____

ORIGINAL POST (November 18 at 1:48 A.M. EST):

The plot thickens, motorbabies.

As if mysterious transmissions and strange Twitter characters blasting at us from every angle were not enough to immerse My Chemical Romance fans in the world of The Fabulous Killjoys, there is now a website for Better Living Industries. The BL/ind site features a mission statement, a report from the Zones and even a merchandise store where you can buy your own BL/ind gear that is sure to make you fit right in with the monochromatic scenery of Battery City.

The launch of the site follows the premier of the band's video for "SING," which - if you're still lost on what BL/ind is - can explain it pretty well:

Track-By-Track Album Review: 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' - My Chemical Romance

First of all, I want to preface this review with a huge thank you to Warner Brothers Records for being so kind as to fly me and Brandi from My Chemical Freak to California for the listening party. I can't thank you enough for inviting me to be a part of this event!

That having been said... Do you have your rayguns ready, motherfuckers? Get in the car. Quick.




My Chemical Romance
Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys
Warner Brothers/Reprise
November 22, 2010










Track-by-track

1. “Look Alive, Sunshine”
The introduction to the album and the first time the listener hears narrator Dr. Death Defying's smooth Zone jargon. “Look Alive…” is exactly what you hear at the beginning of the “Na Na Na…” video, and – as you know if you have seen it – the two tracks blend perfectly.

2. “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)”
The first single from the album and a song that many of you have probably already heard. I, having heard it in the context of the rest of the album, can safely say that the song is, along with “Look Alive, Sunshine,” a perfect introduction to the Killjoys and their world.



3. “Bulletproof Heart”
Starting slow and simple with vocal harmonies to die for, “Bulletproof…” sounds almost like a song that could be in a production of “My Chemical Romance: The Musical” as the triumphant theme-song for united runaways.

The verses have a youthful bounce that sounds almost sweet or precocious, which induced smiles and head-nodding among the listening party crowd. The chorus, like a gust of furious, passionate wind hits, and I mean literally hits the listener. Through the chorus and until the safe landing on side of the next verse, the listener is soaring, windswept by its powerful melody and lyrics:

“Gravity/ Don’t mean too much to me/ I’m who I’ve got to be/ These pigs are after me, after you...”

The lyrics speak of the newspaper pleas for the missing Jenny and Johnny, characters Gerard had mentioned in interviews when the song was still titled “Trans-Am,” to come back home.

The mood of the song is that of carefree escape and a fight to survive for those who “do [their] talking with [their] laser beams.”

4. "SING"
The album's second single that delivers, with a quiet intensity through the verses and a bright illumination of a chorus, a message for the listener to express his or her self.

The video for "SING" will debut on MTV circa 7:50 EST on November 18.

5. “Planetary (GO!)”
The song starts with sirens, a clear-cut sign that shit’s about to go down in the Zones. Gerard Way’s opening vocals are hushed and intense, perhaps indicating quiet planning to run from the law force those sirens are summoning. With plans in line and rayguns at the ready, the song bursts out and the running begins with heavy synth and a dance beat.

The lyrics of the song are framed almost as an advertisement for things like “truth” at the beginning before they turn to defiance and running, a thing it seems the Killjoys must always do.

It’s as if My Chemical Romance is reclaiming the notion of the party and making it dangerous, dancing into it with violence, turning up the volume and saying something along the lines of: “Hey, you think I’m a drag? Deal with it, motherfucker!” The same notion can also be heard on "Party Poison."

"Planetary (GO!)" is mind-numbingly FUN, which may seem like a scary thing, but if you know you can never go home and you know someone will always be chasing after you, why not celebrate for the time you have, right?

6. “The Only Hope For Me Is You”
The second taste fans got of Danger Days.... "The Only Hope for me Is You" leads the listener through destruction and toward hope.

7. “Jet-Star and The Kobra Kid/Traffic Report”
Here’s Dr. Death Defying again, but this time his purpose is not to get us pumped for an adventure. He’s returning with “bad news from the zones, Tumbleweeds.”

8. “Party Poison”
The renamed, jazzed-up version of the song fans knew from The Roxy shows as “Death Before Disco.” It is hard to tell how it changed from the shows because, as I have come to find, the live versions of these songs – though awesome – do not justify how multi-dimensional and jaw-droppingly impressive they all actually are.

The song starts with the frantic and excited-sounding voice of a woman speaking Japanese. The sound of heavy, dirty guitars seem to sweep the voice of the woman away into MCR’s loud-and-proud “anti-party” party song.

Where the song differs from the “Death Before Disco” version can be heard in a few beginning vocal rhythms that stray enough from the expected to get one’s attention. There’s also a sweet, mini guitar solo thrown in at the beginning. “Party Poison” is a potent substance, enough to kill all parties.

9. “Save Yourself, I’ll Hold Them Back”
"Save Yourself..." is among several songs on the album that become a sort of uniting force for the "gang" in the Zones as well as for My Chemical Romance and the band's fans.

It sounds as if it could have come from the 1980's at parts, and - as a few fans pointed out - sounds almost Bon Jovi-esque, but it's updated from that sound, MCR-ified and turned brand new.
Dowload it for free! (Legally, of course)

10. “S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W”
As far as concept goes, "S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W" is probably the most “in-character” song on the album, and it also incorporates the most effects, it seems, with a sort of piercing, watery fog covering it.

The song, at its start sounds deceptively like “I Don’t Love You” with more piercing guitars. It sets the mood of the Killjoys’ world with lines like “Blow a kiss at the methane skies” and mentions of having “playground eyes.” It’s like a shrieking lullaby for nightfall in The Zones, warning the Killjoys to find somewhere to retreat to hide from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W.

11. “Summertime”
A slow, soft love song for the runaways. The track's positioning next to "DESTROYA," makes it seem almost utterly ridiculously tame and slow in comparison. However, it also emphasizes exactly how tremendously the songs of Danger Days can fluctuate in style through the album.

“Summertime” is a befitting title. From the start, the music of this song seems to connote summer. It's easy to picture sunny driving weather and windows down with this song playing. The synth in it has almost a shining sound reminiscent of sun on water.

The vocal delivery of the song made it a bit hard to decipher the lyrics, but the chorus ends with: “You can run away with me/ Any time you want.”

12. DESTROYA
When Gerard mentioned to a crowd on the U.K. tour that the song had a tribal beat, he meant actual tribal drums, which are what start this shocking number.

Absolutely heavy and utterly annihilating, "DESTROYA" raises questions about faith and superstition delivered as something between sexual aggression and straight-up rage. I’ve come to call the combination a “ragephrodisiac.”

Tribal percussion paired with rough and angry guitars mix the animalistic and rowdy cocktail for explosions and, well, destruction. "DESTROYA" is a feral call from a wild world. It really makes you want to slap Guns 'N Roses in the face for giving you such a poor welcoming to the jungle so many years ago. No exaggeration or hyperbolic MCR fan speak on that, either. I mean the Hell out of it.

13. “The Kids From Yesterday”
You think you know but you have no idea. My Chemical Romance was excited to play “The Kids From Yesterday” at their U.K. comeback shows, and I’m sure it was great live, and the videos of it are wonderful, but they lack much of what the recorded song provides.

A looping clip of screaming kids opens, infiltrates through, and closes the song and there are so many effects that one may have missed from merely seeing the live version.

The song exemplifies MCR’s progress as a band and how much they put into each piece of art they release, especially with the lyric “This could be the last of all the rides we take. So, hold on tight and don’t look back."

At the end, "...Kids..." pulls a "Drowning Lessons" and reprises briefly.

14. “Goodnite, Dr. Death”
Dr. Death Defying signs off for the album, reminding us to always keep running. Even if you manage to get yourself “dusted” along your journey through the Zones, “your shadow lives on without you.” Dr. Death signs off with the Star Spangled Banner, which ends with a bang that rippled the huge speakers in the room where the listening party was held and caused some degree of exclamation from us.

15. Vampire Money
“3, 2, 1/ We came to fuck!!” Gerard introduces each band member to start the song, which rips, with absolute filth, through raw, Punk murderous-ness. And it’s not a typical modern imitation of the Punk that so many have deemed dead. It’s as if My Chemical Romance, dirty, young, careless and hellbent on destroying the world, traveled back in time to open for the Ramones and brought the future with them to the stage.

The gritty solo in "Vampire Money," the whole song in fact, sounds like someone took something simple, a formula for Punk song with hand-claps, rhythmic up-shouts and other staples, and scribbled all over it and ripped and frayed it until it was perfect.

It’s a Trans-Am peel-out of Zone 5 proportions that will kick you straight in the teeth and leave you for dead. As art should. It’s the perfect way to end an amazing adventure and come back to 2010.

---

The resounding themes of the album seem to be: living and creating to the fullest without regard for the consequences ("the aftermath is secondary"), defending yourself, uniting in pursuit of something, freedom, explosions and bad-assery. There are far more slow songs on the album than many had anticipated. However, the slow ones have as much power as the fast to grab the listener and strangle them to attention with the force of Kobra Kid’s Draculoid-dusting power glove.

Though the Killjoys concept is heavy, ‘Danger Days…’ is the most straightforward My Chemical Romance album, and could possibly be the one that will remove from the band, along with its fans, the marks misinterpretation have left on us all.

And so, my Dust Kittens, concludes my review. If you have any questions about the album that you are dying to have answered, leave them in the comments, and I will be happy to respond!

PS: Living without "DESTROYA" and "Vampire Money" for the next couple weeks may make me lose my mind.
