3. No Shows
6. Zero Zero
8. Drugstore Perfume
9. Get the Gang Together
10. How It’s Going To Be
11. Maya the Psychic
Speaking about the album, Gerard said that:
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 shoegaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people.
The artist also added:
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.
Having all of these in mind I have to say that I am no longer “afraid” of how Hesitant Alien is going to sound like.Hopefully the My Chemical Romance fans got used to the whole break-up idea and they will further support Gerard with his solo career.
