INTERVIEW: My Chemical Romance: The album you didn’t get to hear

— My Chemical Romance returned last year in fine form with “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys,” a CD that offered a significant turn from the band’s darkly hued 2006 rock opera, “The Black Parade.”
What fans didn’t hear was a CD the group recorded with acclaimed producer Brendan O’Brien that was scrapped before the group went on to record “Danger Days.” But bassist Mikey Way doesn’t see the CD as a failure.
“I really love that album,” Way said. “But there was nothing, there was no high arc to it. There was no like left turns where you saw a right turn ahead. There were no sudden drops or sudden spikes. It was very much a middle of the road rock album, which isn’t like us. That’s not something that we would normally do. But when we went in to make the album with Brendan, we had all these rules. We set up all of these obstacles for ourselves, like it can’t be this, it can’t be that.
“What happened was when we came to the finish line, there was something missing. I think we succeeded in doing what we intended to do. We wanted to make a stripped back rock and roll album, which is what we did. But yeah, when we all went into mix, we were all like something doesn’t feel right. Something’s wrong. And we learned very much on this session to go with your gut. If you’re feeling something, you’re probably 80 percent there and you’re probably right.”
