Sorry once again for a month-long gap, bats and ghouls, everything continues to happen so much. Let's break down some of what's new, yeah?

A new music video for Medicine Square Garden by Frank Iero and the Future Violents was put out. Content warning for flashing lights and gore.

Hey all, here are a couple more unreleased demos. Link in bio and description below. Hope that you are doing well. ⠀ ⠀ PS Earth This one was recorded at the tail end of the Hesitant Alien demo sessions, just Doug and I. I liked it well enough at the time, felt kind of 90’s, didn’t end up putting any vocals on it though. I like the bridge a lot. Looking back at the whole thing, I like it, but not sure if I’m going to finish it. Guitar, bass by me. Programmed drums by Doug. Crate Amp_01 This is the start of the Crate amp jam. Like I mentioned in the other post about the Crate amp jams, I wasn’t sure when Doug was in record-mode, because I was in the live room with the amp, so I just started playing. I feel like doing more of these Crate amp jams. I think we can get it to sound even more messed up. At one point, I think in a later track, Doug tried to do this thing where he put a glass bottle over one of the mics, to make it sound more messed up and kind of underwater. Oh and when I bought this amp, I also bought an old Peavy, which is another kind of amp that is cheap and you saw a lot of metal bands using in the 80’s. That one sounds pretty messed up too, and I think it also has built in distortion. The amps sound pretty different from each other though. I can’t remember which guitar I was playing for certain, but I am pretty sure it was the BC Rich Mockingbird Lindsey got me for Christmas, which I love. BC Rich is another one of these companies gear heads get snobby about, and the 80’s saw a lot of metal bands, all kinds of metal bands, use them. Thrash, hair metal, just all kinds of metal. The Warlock was everywhere. Years ago I heard about this successful musician buying up a ton of a certain kind of guitar, to corner the market on them, so I thought I would do what he was doing, but in the complete opposite direction, and buy up a ton of guitars no one really wanted and that wouldn’t really increase in value. Just to be a clown. I ended up not doing that, as that would have been a gross misuse of funds simply to make a joke, but I did eventually get one. I like the shape a lot. It sounds metal af.
The Quarantine Coloring Book
Gerard Way and Sara Taylor have been organizing a project called The Quarantine Coloring Book, a page-a-day digital coloring book featuring lineart from all sorts of creatives. Gerard, Mikey, Ray, and Frank all have pieces in the first volume, which you can download on the official website.
New Electric Century
Mikey Way and Dave Debiak have a new Electric Century project coming out this fall.
I say project because it's not only a new record: it's got an accompanying graphic novel through Z2 Comics as well.
The comic is co-written by Way and Shaun Simon, and illustrated by Toby Cypress.
MCR Face Masks
The merch listing for these says that they "had these masks made to keep you dust-free in the desert, a show that never happened, never will." Which kind of makes me want to cry for a few reasons.
Just to let you know a bit about what's happening on this end: we've got a MCRXX tour updates page now for information on pandemic-related cancellations and postponements. I'll put a sticky link up at the top of this section for ease of access.
I've also put together an article archive page to clean up the index a bit (it'll end up a mile long otherwise, haha). From here on out, all articles will have their own static links now! You could link your friends to a specific post of ours now, maybe, if you want. It's something I've been meaning to implement from day 1, and it's here now! Yay!
Aaaand that's it for now! Catch ya later, folks. Thanks for reading.
