Q&A: Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance

In a recent interview with SoundSpike, MCR guitarist Frank Iero describe the album as "a high concept-pirate radio transmission from the year 2019 after this event that happens in a post-apocalyptic world," adding that, "there's no true storyline. I like to think of it as a roller coaster ride. Like one of those Disney-themed rides. There are elements of a world that we've created, but you're kind of picking up as you go along."

Iero said that MCR plans to flesh out the concept with a series of music videos from album tracks that should surface over the coming months.
