My Chemical Romance plan ''smarter'' tour
My Chemical Romance will be "smarter" about touring, as they're worried about burning out on the road.
The 'Na Na Na' rockers said they will be taking more time off between legs of their tour in support of their album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' because they want to be in peak form for their fans.
Guitarist Ray Toro said: "Last time we literally went from tour to tour to tour, and it was all kind of connected into this really, really long stretch.
"Nowadays physically we can't do that, but also mentally too. People need a break and need to recharge the batteries.
"I think ultimately that's better for the fans, better for us, better for our families. So we are going to approach touring a little differently, a little smarter."
Despite spacing their touring out, Ray assured that the band will not be cutting back the number of dates they play.
He added: "That doesn't mean we won't play as many shows as we used to or hit as many countries, we just have to do it a little smarter."
Ray also explained how the band - which also includes Gerard Way, Mikey Way and Frank Iero - helped get into the mindset to record their last album by looking toward the future.
He added: "As a band we put ourselves into the mindset, of what might the radio be playing in 2019? And What might My Chemical Romance sound like in 2019? That helped us find some of the sounds that we were looking for and influenced the song structure and the arrangements.
"I find we're a band like that. We do need a little bit of inspiration on that side, and that's something that we talked about and kind of formed and made bigger as the record went on."Posted on 16 Feb 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
