Gerard Way, former frontman of My Chemical Romance, has posted a lengthy update on Twitter regarding his thoughts on interacting with his former band's fanbase. For a little more background, you can read his tweets yesterday.
As far as yesterday is concerned, the last thing I'd want anyone to feel is that I have a general perception of you all as overwhelmingly negative. That is not the case. In an effort to try and help people understand certain things, as a communicator, sometimes it is easier to deal with something when it is directly brought to you, maybe by someone that is confused.

I was going through it. It was sad, like the passing of a family member. But over time I got great joy and pleasure from reflecting. I was able to truly put on some songs and be like, ‘Wow, we really did something. We cracked the heavens.’ With MCR we were so busy.

On March 25, we will be releasing a greatest hits album entitled "May Death Never Stop You." The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us. The album also includes some previously unreleased material, including the infamous "Attic Demos," and one of the last songs we worked on in the studio together. On January 21, we will be opening pre-orders for the album right here on our site. We hope...
Hits Daily Double is listing a new My Chemical Romance release – an album name is not specified – on their upcoming releases chart. The listing date is January 21, 2014.
