The always-intrepid Frank Iero released a music video for the second single from The Cellebration’s debut album, Stomachaches.  “Joyriding” follows in the bloody footsteps of Frank’s other work that has come before this (see: LeATHERMOUTH, 2009).

In the newest issue of Rock Sound Magazine, due in stores on September 10, Gerard is featured on the cover.  The article covers what has come before and what is to come.  What is nice about this particular publication is that they also catch up with the rest of the band and what they’re currently up to.

Rock Sound also published a short interview they posted on YouTube:

Where do we even start?  So much has changed in the world and in our personal worlds since My Chemical Romance last took the stage on that day in Asbury Park in May of 2012.  Brett here, and I can only speak from personal experience that I, myself, know my life has changed a lot.  Clearly the members of MCR are not special in that regard as they have all seen a lot of change, too. Fortunately we’re being allowed to see that nearly year-and-a-half of change in a tangible way (no, that was not a pun).

Brandi and I have decided to dust off mychemicalfreak.com, but instead of spending the next 3 weeks writing posts that bring people who aren’t in the Twitter world up to date, we’ve decided to simply start moving…forward.  I think that’s what Gerard, Mikey, Ray, and Frank would want.  We don’t need a rehash of the past 18 months.  Let’s just get this juggernaut rolling again as it seems like it is a really great time to start coverage again.  So, without further ado, we carry on.

The biggest piece of news right now is that Gerard’s solo album, HESITANT ALIEN, is to be released on Warner Bros. records on September 30.  At gerardway.com, all the digital ordering information is available.  Those who pre-order will instantly receive a free download of the single, “No Shows.”

Speaking of “No Shows,” the official video for the song was released on August 19.  The bizarre video, which looks like it came out of an episode of the 1970’s and early 1980’s television show, Midnight Special, sees Gerard channeling a New Wave look.  Naturally, the vision comes together beautifully.

Last night Gerard performed to a 400-only crowd in Portsmouth, England.  He is in the UK to perform solo at the Reading and Leeds festivals.  Click HERE for 10 photos from the Portsmouth gig.  Stay tuned for Reading and Leeds coverage.

Ray Toro has launched his own website!  According to a blog posted by the man, himself, he is going to be entering the studio NEXT WEEK with Doug McKean “to track the first clutch of songs for my next project.”  He promises audio teasers, behind the scenes video, etc.  Really excited to see what the genius comes up with.

So, that is the first update of many yet to come.  I’m sorry if it’s been brief, but moving forward, keep checking back and My Chemical Freak will keep you updated.  Love you all and let’s start running.
