MCR's latest offering Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys drops this Monday for UK and this Tuesday for the US and those that were dedicated enough to order the "California 2019" edition of the album, received a ton of goodies including the mysterious EP by "The Mad Gear and Missile Kid."
In an interview with MTV MCR Frontman gives the details on who The Mad Gear and Missile Kid are:
"Well, it's us, but playing as this band 'Mad Gear and Missile Kid' from the [Danger Days] world," MCR guitarist Frank Iero explained. "There's show fliers from that band in the videos. ... It's basically what the Killjoys are listening to in the car as they're having those gun battles."
"I always pictured that's what the Killjoys listen to," frontman Gerard Way said. "To me, it's like giving a fan a piece — like we'd give them a ray-gun, or the 'Bad Luck' beads — but it's another set piece to the world. This one's just an audio one."
Way stated in an interview that the new MCR album would be headed in more of a "punk" direction, which on some songs this is true. However, after listening to the LP and the MGMK EP, i'd say the EP carries its weight in that statement. Don't believe me? Check out the track "Black Dragon Fighting Society" below.
