My Chemical Romance have said that they may well pursue new side-projects as they come to the end of the touring cycle for their fourth album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys'.

Speaking to Kerrang!, guitarist Frank Iero, who fronts his own project Leathermouth already, has said that he believes the other members of the New Jersey rockers could follow a similar path.

Asked about the prospect of the other members of My Chemical Romance pursuing side-projects, Iero said: "I can see the other guys branching off and doing other things. Gerard [Way] has his writing, and he has plans for that, but he wants to direct too. And Ray [Toro] is such an incredible talent. I'd love to see him get the credit he's due. I can see us branching off, but always coming back to this."

The guitarist also indicated that My Chemical Romance would be recording again soon, adding:

"We're being very creative right now. There are some really bright and creative things going on. At every soundcheck, we're coming up with new pieces of music that could turn into something incredible. So we're hoping to get into the studio soon and really harness that.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - For close to a decade, the New Jersey contingent staked their own claim in America's post-emo landscape, resonating with fans and flummoxing their detractors. Last year, they lost focus, a drummer and their sense of self. This year, they're getting it all back—and more.

The issue will be on sale February 1st and will also include a fold-out poster.

From "Safe And Sound" interview in rockin'on magazine, I picked up some quotes and info that might interest you :D

-(Who is currently moving you musically at the moment?) Gerard:"Recently I like the new Glasvegas album very much, I think they're a great band, so I'm excited about them, and I'm looking forward to MEW's new album, Rich Costy is producing it and he produced Glasvegas's album too.....And also I'm listening to lots of older stuff like the Stooges, the old Damned albums, like really punky stuff, I like artists with very raw performance, and that's the direction we are trying for the new album."

-(What kind of emotion is pouring out of you now?) "A lot of excitement, really, I don't have beefs with anybody I don't have any problems I'm basically very happy but there's this reckless kind of excitement with what we can do with music and that's what we are all excited about"

- They started to work on new songs in October 08, after they did the second recordings of "Desolation Row" in NY.
(What happened to the "new song"we can hear on the Black Parade Is Dead! DVD?) "That's a very good question. I don't know!(laughs) ...We have to see. We haven't even touched it, what we've been working on are completely new songs. so we haven't really delved into it"

- He never wants to be a solo artist but he wants to keep writing songs for other people because he thinks it's a healthy thing to do and some of his favorite songs are the ones that his favorite artists wrote for other people, like "All the Young Dude"written by David Bowie for Mott the Hoople.

- At the time of the interview, the producer was not confirmed yet, but he said they were talking with Brendan O'Brien and if they could actually work with him the new album would be finished quickly because Brendan is known for working quickly, and that's what they want this time around, especially after the long and hard work for the Black Parade.

-He couldn't say if they'd play new songs at Summer Sonic for sure but he said he knew that the next time they'd play a show, that'd be when they'd play new songs.
