Gerard Way: “Making Music Is More Fun These Days…”

PLUS! Andy Black, While She Sleeps, Alexisonfire, Don Broco, A Day To Remember, Avenged Sevenfold, Rammstein and LOADS more!

Since he was a kid, Gerard Way has sought solitude in the world of graphic novels – first as a reader, and later, with the weight of the rock world on his shoulders, as a creator. But now, he explains exclusively to Kerrang!, working on the Netflix adaptation of his The Umbrella Academy series helped him reconnect with his love for making music, too…

Plus, because it’s been a rather long while since Gerard graced the cover of Kerrang!, we’ve teamed up with his former collaborator Brian Ewing for two killer art prints of the man himself!

Elsewhere in the mag this week… Andy Black talks us exclusively through his new solo album The Ghost Of Ohio, track by track, while Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden explains the songs that have taken him from youth through to adulthood, and Geoff Rickly gets put through our career-spanning Kerrang! Interview.

In the reviews section… While She Sleeps spread their wings and rewrite their own rules on their expansive fourth album, and pop-rock kings Weezer get it all wrong on their long-awaited Black Album. On the live front, Brit rock’s most flamboyant, Don Broco, celebrate a decade with a massive arena blowout, Bristol punks IDLES channel mayhem and fun at intimate charity gig, and Weybridge titans You Me At Six embrace their inner dancefloor for War Child.

There are six killer posters, too, featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium, Gojira, Rammstein, Bury Tomorrow and A Day To Remember!

All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, February 20 from all good newsagents.
