Stripped Down, Cranked Up: My Chemical Romance Return

I don’t have any answers and I stole the questions from someone else

Save Yourself, I'll Hold Them Back
Sounds Like: Down'n'dirty rock'n'roll collides with stadium rock, with big, emotive My Chemical Romance chorus that makes you want to jump up and down in a sea of thousands of other people.
Stand-out lyrics:
You can leave this world, live it all behind
We can steal this car if your folks don't mind
We can live forever if you've got the time...

Still Alive
Sounds Like: A bouncy and playful romp - complete with all-girl gang vocals - about the hazards of playing the Reading and Leeds festivals. Gerard wrote this anthem from the perspective of a teenager getting ready to throw a bottle of piss. Tasty!
Stand-out lyrics:
We came here to rough up everyone we see
Get off the stage and ask yourself "Am I still alive?"

Death For Disco
Sound Like: A thumping great ode to the pleasure of raucous rock'n'roll hedonism with an unabashedly pop chorus.
Stand-out lyrics:
'Cos all the good times, they give you cancer...

Trans Am
Sound Like: Huge melodies and epic songwriting intermingle to create a glorious runway teen riot
Stand-out lyrics:
Gravity don't mean too much to me
Is this our destiny
This world is after me

Ray reveals song titles \o/

I don’t have any answers and I stole the questions from someone else

Mixing with our good buddy Rich Costey is going great. So far, he's mixed 9 songs, and they all sound fucking stellar. He had an interesting process where he started out mixing some of the looser songs first, and then ramped up to the denser stuff. Our goal in mixing is to make it loud, and then make it louder then that. "Still Alive" was an early one, and he brought a real heaviness and aggressiveness to that song. Song is very drum and bass oriented, very different for us, but still rocks at the same time. A bit of Queen influenced guitar harmonies helps on that song.

"Save Yourself" was another early one, a mix of Judas Priest metal and 80's arena rock. That song went through a lot of different permutations, and finally we settled on this vibe that took us to new territory. We then got into a song called "The Only Hope For Me Is You," and that's where things really starting clicking with Rich. What was great was each song would just sound better and bigger than the last. As some of you had guessed from a twitter thing of mine (I refuse to call it a tweet), David Campbell did a bit of work on the record, and that's one of the songs he arranged for. Costey did this crazy effect with the strings going into the last chorus that blew me away. One of my favorite tracks.

"Trans Am" and "Death Before Disco" came next. "Disco" you may have heard at the Roxy shows or from Youtube videos of Summersonic. So happy with the way that mix turned out. I have to drive REALLY FAST when I listen to it. I think that's a hallmark of a great rock song. "Trans Am" is an epic take on "Born To Run" in 4 minutes. When we wrote this song, it was HUGE for us. Really opened our hearts and ears during the writing process. Frank, thanks for noodling and G, good ear to make a song out of it. You guys will love this song. Another favorite. Looking forward to more mixes, we got coming up "Kiss The Ring," which we also played at Roxy. I really can't wait for "Black Dragon Fighting Society," our ode to Misfits punk. Song kinda shreds!

Mixing is a great thing. The ideas continue to flow, and like they say, writing is never done.
FYI any of the song titles mentioned are still tentative, you know how we like to change things up!!!

Sorry about my recent lack-of-blogging. We have been trapped inside of an honest to goodness rock and roll vortex. These past few weeks, we have been hammering away at our fourth album in a "secret" "underground" "subterranean" studio. Part of me wants to spill all the details, song titles, subliminal messages, blazing solos etc etc but that would be no fun at all. Where's your sense of adventure? I think that if you wait just a little bit longer that you'll thank me for it in the end. Just a little bit longer..

жалко конечно, что они решили молчать, а потом сбросить на нас всё сразу, но факт, что они усердно работают, радует уже сам по себе.)

Ни с того, ни с сего сегодня сделал микс из двух песен: My Chemical Romance - Heaven Help Us и Hide - Psyche, ах-да, я заметил, что чем то они похожи, правильно.

In the next few weeks, My Chemical Romance will head into the studio to record their fourth full-length album with producer Brendan O’Brien. He has previously worked with AC/DC, Mastodon, Bruce Springsteen, and Pearl Jam, among others. He’s good.
