My Chemical Romance have revealed that they are writing new music everyday.

In an exclusive interview with Gigwise, the band's frontman Gerard Way said they will return to the studio later this year to work on the follow-up to 2010's 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys'.

Asked whether he felt it would take a while to record, Way replied: “No I don’t think it will. The thing is that the band was in a really unhealthy place when ‘Black Parade’ ended and now the band is in such a healthy place that there’s no more ‘I want to run away’ or ‘It’s about me’.

“Now it’s like this is what I do and I want to do this for the rest of my life. Everybody’s so happy.”

He added: “We’re writing music every day at the moment, which was something that wasn’t happening on ‘Black Parade’.”

Way's brother Mikey agreed that the band were in a good place at the moment.

“If anyone in the band has an issue or if somebody has an idea for a song it can now become a song in five or ten minutes,” he said.

“Stuff like that is happening at the moment which is really exciting to see what It turns into for the next album.”

My Chemical Romance played their last UK shows this year when they headlined Reading and Leeds festivals at the weekend.
