Former My Chemical Romance fronter Gerard Way has released the music video for "No Shows," a cut from his upcoming solo debut, Hesitant Alien. The vid, shot with a throwback 1980s vibe, features Way and his band performing on a brightly lit stage.
"My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar," says Way of the new LP.
"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."
Hesitant Alien hits September 30. Way is set to make his solo debut at Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend.
