Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has announced details of his upcoming debut solo album Hesitant Alien. The album will be released on the 30th September via Warner Bros. Records and will be available to pre-order from the 19th August.
When discussing the album, Way said: ‘My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar. I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments. I knew I would look at who my guitar heroes were in art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein, and I drew a lot of influence from shoe-gaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people.’
