While every member of My Chemical Romance has gone off and done their own thing since the band’s split in 2013, there’s one project that’s release keeps getting pushed back. On Monday (Jan. 4), former MCR bassist, Mikey Way, and his project, Electric Century, revealed that 2016 is going to be a good year for them. Taking to Twitter, the act posted “2016 is THE year.” The social media post comes after what feels like years of Way pushing the project back due to several issues, most importantly his rehab stint.
In November of 2014, the musician posted an open letter to fans in which he revealed that he had encountered and intervention and was directed to enter rehab earlier that year. Due to his rehabilitation, anything having to do with Electric Century, including their much-anticipated full-length debut, was pushed back, for good reason. After some quiet, the group revealed plans to release an exclusive Record Store Day 2015 EP which featured three new tracks and one of the first songs they released early on.
Even though Electric Century has been quiet, it doesn’t mean Way has been. Back in July of 2015, the bassist joined forces with Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley when his side project, Deryck Whibley and the Happiness Machines, hit the California road for a three-date tour.
