they might look intimidating but they’re actually adorable
on one hand i have a really sadface dead muse telling me shit. and then on the other i have my current muse telling me shit about her past and past romances. sadface dead muse is like screaming because he doesn’t wanna hear current muses past romances, because he is one of those.
you fucks shut up because i don’t wanna write all this down right now. i wanna go slep.
And when I ran out of rungs, I grew a mustache for MAXIMUM JAUNT
there’s no pain worse than the pain of try to draw nsfw and just… not being able to make it work
i just wanna draw the frick frack
but my ability isn’t having it
i walked into work today and the grill folks were fighting straight away, so immediately i put on gloves, look at them, and say “listen, today we’re all on team WAFFLE-O. ‘We are Friends, Friends Love Each Other.’” thank you ray for that lovely acronym
Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way will release his debut solo album, entitled Hesitant Alien, on September 30th via Warner Bros. Records. The new album will be available for pre-order at all digital retailers beginning Tuesday, August 19th. Exclusive album bundles will also be available for pre-order on GerardWay.com on the same date. Fans who pre-order the album will receive the track “No Shows” instantly as a free download. The music video for “No Shows” will also be released on August 19th. Please see below for the full track-listing.
Working with producer Doug McKean, Way knew immediately what he wanted Hesitant Alien to sound like. “I wanted to make the small things sound big,” he says. “My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar. I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments. I knew I would look at who my guitar heroes were in art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein, and I drew a lot of influence from shoe-gaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people.” Hesitant Alien was mixed by Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys).
Lyrically, Way wrote about what he knew at the time, “which was struggle, beginnings, finding a newness in the mundane and the abstract,” he says. “I looked to the Britpop poets like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn, drawing upon every day life. I also experimented with the abstract, and looked at Frank Black’s work both with the Pixies, and as a solo artist. There was no concept and no call-to-arms.
Fans will get their first listen to some of the songs on Hesitant Alien when Way performs his first solo shows at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in England. He will perform at Reading on August 22nd and at Leeds on August 23rd.
