GERARD WAY Hesitant Alien Limited Vinyl LP

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way releases his debut solo album. Working with producer Doug McKean, Way knew immediately what he wanted it to sound like. “I wanted to make the small things sound big,” he says. “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.” “Hesitant Alien” was mixed by Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys). Lyrically, Way wrote about what he knew at the time, “which was struggle, beginnings, finding a newness in the mundane and the abstract,” he says. “I looked to the Britpop poets like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn, drawing upon everyday life. I also experimented with the abstract, and looked at Frank Black's work both with the Pixies, and as a solo artist. There was no concept and no call-to-arms.” Fans got their first listen to some of the songs when Way performed his first solo shows at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in August.
