Former My Chemical Romance
frontman Gerard Way
has confirmed that a greatest hits album from the band will be released in the new year, Gigwise
Slated for a January release, Way sent out a tweet confirming the existence of the record. However it's not quite what fans might have been expecting - following a rumour that original material was on the horizon. Addressing the rumours of a reformation and the band's involvement in the project, he stated that the "release is a Greatest Hits Warner Bros is putting out."
He also said that he would be designing the artwork for the release which is scheduled for January 21, 2014.
My Chemical Romance broke up earlier this year after Way issued an extensive letter detailing why the splity had happened. It closed with the line: "My Chemical Romance is done. But it can never die. It is alive in me, in the guys, and it is alive inside all of you. I always knew that, and I think you did too. Because it is not a band - it is an idea."
