My Chemical Romance Slam Fame-Hungry Musicians On New Album

An article was posted at Spinner Music yesterday about the upcoming album and the issues it deals with.

Way tells Spinner the as-yet-untitled album is a definite answer to ‘The Black Parade.’ “Every single record we make is a response to the last,” he says. “But sometimes it’s not only a response to the last record — it’s a response to the opinion of that record or a response to the world at the time of that record.”

What he sees and documents on the new album is a lot of rockers who are in music for the wrong reason. “There’s a definite undercurrent of fame versus working class, people having stuff handed to them with zero talent versus working class kids that start a band,” he says. “Rock ‘n’ roll is not red carpets and MySpace friends — rock ‘n’ roll is dangerous and rock ‘n’ roll should piss people off. Right now, there’s not a lot of that happening. What it is is a lot of people trying to be famous. That seems to be the goal.”

There’s plenty more where that came from over at Spinner Music.
