Fresh off [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]My Chemical Romance[/lastfm]’s “Best International Band” and “Best Video” wins at the Shockwaves NME Awards, guitarist Frank Iero hints that a ‘lost’ album could be released after the band breaks up.
Iero told RockAAA.com that the band scrapped between 20 and 30 songs after recording “Na Na,” “Vampire Money,” “Planetary,” and “Sing,” the first hit single from Danger Days.
“If we had come to that realisation before finishing those four songs I think it would have been very scary but we were so happy with the path that we were on at that point that it just made sense,” said Iero.
Guitarist Ray Toro added, “There are definitively songs that I miss on that record and that was probably the hardest part when we started writing Danger Days as we started to realise that some of the songs we had written didn’t necessarily fit anymore.”
So what will happen to the unreleased material?
“Right now they are just for us but I actually did have this idea when we were making the record. I said ‘I have this great idea that we should record two records and release one and put the other away in the vault so when the band breaks up so it would be the last MCR record ever,'” Iero explains.
