Rick Rubin Encourages MCR Singer Gerard Way To Get In The Studio With Former Band Members Of Thursday
In early of March last year, My Chemical Romance announced their break up after several musical accolades and the recording of 4 very successful studio albums. Not too long before then, another band called Thursday, a huge player in the early Post-Hardcore scene, had announced their indefinite hiatus in 2011. Now, it seems as though famed producer Rick Rubin (Jay-Z, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers) is determined to get Gerard Way in the studio with the remaining members of Thursday.
"It was odd", recalled the former MCR singer, "At the time he called I was actually going through some old demos on my Soundcloud under the name DannyTheStreet. The guy seems to know his music well, and I was surprised at how much he knew about one of my favorite bands 'Rites Of Spring'. I was like 'get the fuck out', you have their old EPs on vinyl. It wasn't too long from there that he had this interesting idea of me hooking up with Thursday's bunch. It's definitely something I'll have to think about."
Rubin, while not commenting, has posted about recent communications with Thursday's band members on his official forum and while nothing is official, the possibility of an elite singer getting together with this former Post-Hardcore act doesn't look too impossible.
Of course, if both parties do agree to go through with this, we have to think about what that might sound like. After all, can an Alternative Rock band really blend in well with Thursday's more hardcore elements. Rubin of course isn't an amateur at pairing random artists together, having resurrected no shortage of many artist's careers. If this does come to fruition, this very well could be one of the best super-groups to come together in quite some time and would bring something new and exciting to music in general.
