After My Chemical Romance split in 2013, lead singer Gerard Way decided to take on the music world by himself. After many successful gigs and festivals, including Spain’s first edition of the Dcode festival, the singer is touching down once more in Barcelona this month. The former frontman will be promoting his first solo album, intriguingly named Hesitant Alien. With Nineties Britpop influences and Jarvis Cocker-esque sounds, Way’s new venture bears little resemblance to the post-hardcore, alternative rock sound of My Chemical Romance. The musician has deliberately chosen a completely different path, in a bid to re-boot Britpop in his native USA. The album contains 11 tracks, including the first two singles, ‘No Shows’ and ‘Action Cat’, which will be part of his set list in Sala Apolo.
Tickets cost €23 in advance, and doors open at 8pm. See here for more information.
