My Chemical Romance are back with a new album, new look, and new vitality, landing the New Jersey emo-punk band on the cover of SPIN’s December issue. Read an excerpt from the cover story here.
SPIN photo director Michelle Egiziano and photographer Ture Lillegraven met up with My Chemical Romance at Los Angeles’ Pink Motel, a ’50s joint often used in movies and music videos (like Cee-Lo’s latest). See exclusive photos and read commentary from Lillegraven about the cover shoot here.
We also sat down with singer Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way, guitarists Frank Iero and Ray Toro to ask them fans questions we received via Twitter and Facebook.
Watch the video below, in which the quartet talk about everything from their worst hairstyle to the softness of Gerard’s lips, along with footage of the band posing at the photo shoot.
