Might be my imagination but despite the article's claims to the contrary, this news is not confirmed in that interview.

Quote:
Iero was tight-lipped on the particulars of the material—as you’ll see—but managed to reveal that it’ll be drummer Jarrod Alexander playing on the album and that the band is looking forward to being back in what they (no doubt lovingly) refer to as “the NJ.”

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.

That said, my opinion remains the same: bring back Bob Bryar. Until that happens though I've been a fan of Jarrod's work in the past so this could be good.

I agree. Love Bob Bryar.

I don't think you read the quote all the way through or you didn't get their silly joke if you think they didn't announce Jarrod as the drummer.


Smart move having him record the next album. He's a beast.

wow... that was completely unnecessary.

and it's not like they can bring Bob back whenever they want. there's a reason he left, you know.

Hoping the new stuff is something I enjoy. So much love for their first 3 records, but the last one made me lose all interest. I know they're all super talented guys and have potential to put out something that blows my mind. All depends if they want to, instead of more of the same with their new sound. I guess time will tell.

I love Danger Days so I'm actually interested to hear some new jams. Jarrod is a great drummer so I'm happy for both him and the band.
