Gerard Way Welcomes Special Guest at Japanese Gig


We’ve all witnessed how the guys of My Chemical Romance were able to put the now defunct band in the past and create their own solo careers with pretty good success.

During his gig last night in Tokyo, Japan, former MCR frontman Gerard Way was joined on stage by a former band mate/special guest; his younger brother Mikey.

Mikey, whose current project Electric Century released a new song earlier this year and are in the studio recording their debut album, returned once more to the bass to play on his older brother’s new-ish song, “Don’t Try.”

Check out the footage (which is a little blurry and shaky, but hey it’s something) and many social media updates, from that show below. Turns out, even James Dewees, Reggie and the Full Effects head honcho and friend of the brothers, was stoked to see the two united on stage again.

While there has been no official word on whether more dates will be added to the tour, we’re hoping there will be, if not, maybe we can beg Way on Twitter to add more dates.

Gerard Way Makes Official Solo Debut


Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way officially made his solo debut this past weekend at Warner Bros. headquarters in Burbank, CA.

The frontman treated the people at Warner Bros. to several of his new tracks including lead single, “Action Cat” and another new track “Juarez” which will be featured on his upcoming solo debut record, Hesitant Alien.

At the time of the showcase, which took place last Friday, there were only a handful of clips and pictures from the performance since it was an intimate thing at the record label’s headquarters.

Thanks to some dude on YouTube, complete footage of both songs has now been acquired. In the video, you can also see that the group has now been dubbed, Gerard Way and the Hormones, because apparently you “can’t have rock and roll with out them,” at least according to Way.


“Action Cat”:

The showcase should not come as a surprise because for a week ro so now, there has been talk that Way would perform a secret show before his official solo debut at Reading and Leeds during the weekend of August 22-24.
