Hear It: My Chemical Romance’s Blistering New Song
The band unleashes the second track from their upcoming album Dangerous Days.
After releasing their debut single “Na Na Na” (from their Nov. 22 album Dangerous Days: the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and teasing behind-the-scenes footage of the video, My Chemical Romance have unleashed a second track from the record, the blistering, fist-pumping rocker “The Only Hope For Me Is You.” Hear it below.
As SPIN previously reported, My Chemical Romance have expanded their emo-punk sound on their new record, experimenting with Beatles-inspired psychedelia and Ramones-esque punk. And while “The Only Hope For Me Is You” hews closer to classic My Chem – chugging guitar riffs, arena-sized drums and Gerard Way’s lyrics about overcoming alientation – the band does branch into new sonic terrain, with cool techno-style synths and Radiohead-ish atmospherics.
