The info in my original post (below) was posted a BIT early; so, I had removed it...until now.
My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has posted an official blog entry explaining the band's upcoming Conventional Weapons project and the story behind the band's Pre-Danger Days "scrapped" album.
The project will include a series of releases, I'm assuming at least in part on 7" vinyl by the store listing from yesterday (below), of never-before-heard MCR songs from the band's 2008-2009 "scrapped album." There will be 5 releases, starting in October, each with 2 never-before-heard songs.
Iero said of the project:
"Recently we had a band meeting, we ended up talking about the past, and together we listened to those songs we created almost 4 years ago. We discussed the the way those songs made us feel, how they led us to where we are now and what the fate of those songs should be. How can we fully move on if we continue to hide the past? Together we decided that this chapter in My Chemical Romance's history no longer needed to be locked away.
So beginning in October we will be releasing 2 songs a month for 5 months. 10 songs in total from the Conventional Weapons sessions we did back in 2009. We hope you enjoy these time capsules, and that they may shed a little more light on how and where Danger Days came from, and maybe even where the future of MCR might be heading. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...and now it is finally time to lift the veil on Conventional Weapons."
More information about Conventional Weapons, including pre-order details and a tracklisting, will be released next week
For an idea of which tracks may be released through this project, check out my old post compiling titles from the scrapped album era!

Conventional Weapons Number Four has been added to the My Chemical Romance online store.
The vinyl is set for release January 8, 2013, and you can pre-order it now
As some of you will remember, in April, 2010, the tentative album title Gerard gave Nylon Guys for what would become the scrapped album was: Conventional Weapons: We're No Match For Them
Perhaps a couple scrapped songs? What do you guys think?
I will update this as more information comes.
