Gerard Way Says He “Wouldn’t Count Out” A My Chemical Romance Reunion

Gerard Way was recently interviewed by Billboard about his work in the comic world, and was asked about the possibility of a My Chemical Romance Reunion. He responded with the following:

“I wouldn’t count [a reunion] out. At the same time, everybody’s doing stuff in their lives now that they’re really enjoying. In some ways I don’t really miss it. It had gotten so big it was very unwieldy. It took a toll on my mental life and personal life. The thing I’m happiest about right now is everybody’s relationships with each other are really strong. That’s more important than anything else to me.”

Way went on to say he did work with with My Chemical Romance guitarist Ray Toro on two songs called “Into the Cave We Wander” and “Pogi’s Cavern” for his “Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye” book. He also said he is thinking about making music for other releases on his Young Animal imprint:

“I was really inspired. I had tried the comics/music thing before The Killjoys. That didn’t quite work in terms of how I feel how artistically connected and successful they were, and a lot of that was because the music part with MCR overshadowed the book. This feels more natural; I just do it when I’m inspired. I like doing things that are accurate to the world of the comics. That’s really fun. And we talk about doing a whole Young Animal record, so we’re working on that right now.”

Lastly, he also talked about putting together another solo album:

“I’m just about to seriously figure out my schedule in terms of how many weeks. I’m writing comics and how many weeks I’m writing music. There’s a plan to put something out; I don’t know when that’ll come, but the process is starting.”
