The MCR singer dropped the news songs over the weekend.
While we all wait for the My Chemical Romance reunion tour that has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, MCR singer Gerard Way is making things a little easier with a four-song solo EP he dropped over the weekend called Distraction or Disrepair.
"Hey all, with all this uncertainty I just wanted to start uploading some unreleased stuff," he wrote on Sunday (April 5). "Just so people can check it out and have something to listen to. Just felt like sharing. I think I have a bunch of this stuff, as Doug and I have been recording little bits here and there over the years. Some of these, like 'Phoning It In,' were things that I planned on releasing as singles, and I may still do that at some point when I finish them, but I figured why not. It feels good to share. Who knows if some of this stuff would have ever come out?"
The songs range from the 14-second vocal sound collage "Success!" and the blown-out 40-second sound assault "Welcome to the Hotel" to the blown-out, distorted guitar jam "Crate Amp_2" ("messing around with this Crate amp I got off of Reverb for cheap") and what "Phoning," the most complete song in the bunch.
