About 4 years ago this would be huge news and covered in bold italicized font and the like. It would also be followed with how awesome Gerard Way is and how much I would love to meet these guys and so on and so forth.
But times change…and so do bands and tastes in bands. Back in the day during my emo phase I worshiped the ground these guys walked on. I had all their albums, had a shit ton of their t-shirts and stuff like that. They had saved my life from imminent suicide at one point or so.
After two really solid awesome (at the time) albums they put out what was to be the last thing we heard from them in 2006 with the Black Parade. Immediately after the release they started whoring themselves out and then subsequently announced a hiatus.
That’s cool cuz right around then I changed my taste in music to what is played on our show now. My Chemical Romance became a footnote on my taste in music. Sure if they were to come on the radio I wouldn’t just change the channel, they were part of who I was.
The first single which premiered on my beloved Radio 104.5 in Philadelphia is called Na Na Na…and it keeps repeating. It doesn’t sound like something they’ve made before. Take a listen and let me know.
