Touted by the cover of January 2010’s Alternative Press magazine as the most anticipated release of the year, My Chemical Romance’s new album encountered a series of snags. While it was initially planned for a spring release, things kept coming up. Frontman Gerard Way had throat problems that prompted gig cancellations in February. Drummer Bob Bryar left the band in March.  Announcements on the band’s website began talking about whole new batches of songs being written even while a slew were already in the can. At July’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Way announced that recording was finished. Cut to September, and the record was still MIA.


Until now. The band released this video teaser September 17th announcing the title of the album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Producer Rob Cavallo, who did the honors for the 2006’s The Black Parade, is back at the helm, and there is currently no word on what happened to the tracks produced with Brendan O’Brien (Springsteen, Pearl Jam) in late 2009.


For fans who were getting a bit blue around the gills from holding their breath, it was a welcome sigh of relief that the much-anticipated project is indeed on its way.
