My Chemical Romance Confirm Jarrod Alexander Will Drum On Next Album

Guitarist Frank Iero revealed the news in a recent interview.

My Chemical Romance have revealed that Jarrod Alexander will be drumming on the band’s next record.

Guitarist Frank Iero revealed the news in a recent interview, in an accordingly jokey manner.

‘First thing’s first: Who’s playing drums? Will it be Jarrod for Bamboozle, and will he play on the next album?

Haha, oh my. First thing off the bat, huh? Jarrod is a rad guy and a fantastic player. It’s been really fun making music with him these past few months. He loves coffee and hitting drums super-hard… and the fact that he’s not a thieving piece of garbage is a breath of fresh air. But since we only had a week’s notice to prepare for this show and with scheduling conflicts and all we decided that instead of using a real-live human drummer we are going to use the super computer from War Games instead. However, we have nicknamed the computer Jarrod.’

My Chemical Romance are allegedly set to be in the studio recording their new album with Doug McKean in Los Angeles.

The band will also play this year’s Bamboozle Festival, after Blink 182 were forced to pull out.
