Does everyone remember that My Chemical Romance video from a few years ago to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of The Black Parade? The one that sent fans straight into a frenzy?
Well, Frank Iero has explained just what that was all about. Speaking with Dan Patrick for his ‘Off the Seton Path’ show, Iero has said:
“So what happened was, we wanted to do a 10-year anniversary release of it, and we had some demos left over and some songs that didn’t make the record and we were like, ‘Oh, cool. We’ll put it all together.’ Every year, we meet and have a barbeque kind of thing. We’ll have the barbeque, kids will hang out and we’ll discuss business for the next year. And we were like, ‘Oh, that would be really cool. We should do a little teaser trailer for it. Alright, that’s what we’ll do.’ So, we told the lady what we wanted, and they made this trailer, and we released it. And all of a sudden we were like, ‘Oh, wait. Everyone’s real confused’.”
“We were always a theatrical band. So we wanted to continue in that fashion, but when you’re not a band any longer, it’s probably harder to do that. We didn’t realize.”
