An article was posted at RollingStone.com earlier this week. In it, Gerard reveals how The Stooges and MC5 influenced the new album.

“We wanted to harness everything that’s great about this band into shorter songs, almost protopunk, like The Stooges or the MC5.”

Gerard also admits that the band nearly split up after touring The Black Parade in May last year.

“I thought the band was going to break up.”

The rest of the article briefly discusses their new musical direction and a few song names. You can read it all at RollingStone.com. NME.com also posted an article earlier today summing up the interview, nothing new, just a round up.
