I could scream forever
We are the poisoned youth

"[Hesitant Alien] has everything from shoegaze to Britpop, and it's a very British album. Everything from fuzz rock to noise rock, to experimentation, to Berlin-era Bowie and Iggy stuff. I've distilled it into some other thing and there's a thread of that throughout the record, but I went deep into my influences" Gerard Way on the influences of his album.
When he talks about making Hesitant Alien, it often sounds like he was pissing about like a musical Willy Wonka, fiddling with things until they scratched an almost childlike itch to create. He was able to revisit the music that shaped him, and chase the inspirations he wanted—David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Blur, Joy Division. It’s one thing having earned the right to do whatever the hell he likes (and he has), but Gerard is also reveling in a far simpler fact: this is brand new, and there are no boundaries and no preordained expectations.
Becoming a successful and moderately famous musician is easily the strangest thing to ever happen to me.
And we’ve overcome that.
