Taking a page from fellow Jersey punks The Bouncing Souls, MCR is spacing out this album. You'll be able to buy or steal 2 songs per month before they are all collected together as their fifth full-length, Conventional Weapons. Most of these songs were written and/or recorded before Danger Days, I do believe.

Stoked, this is one MTV-ready band that really does whatever the fuck they want.

Yeah it almost seems pointless making it into an album at all by the end of it.

I like the idea of making a digestible product in the short-term and a well-preserved one in the long term. This also allows them to pepper the new songs into their live show sparingly. It's easier to make multiple near-microtransactions of $.99 or $1.99, too, than a $9.99 drop.

What do you find "pretty stupid" about it?

I'm not a fan of the idea, I think it'd ruin the flow of the album and it'll sound like a collection of singles as opposed to an album.

That said, I'm a fan of the band, so I'm sure I'll listen.

Not a fan of this way of releasing tracks but I'll give it a listen assuming it's better than Danger Days.

How is this stupid at all? This is exciting, intriguing, and cool for fans of MCR.

Though I wouldn't put (2013) in the thread title, and I definitely would NOT call it "their fifth full length" at all

Yeah, doesn't Kanye basically do the same thing? Haha.

Not a fan of MCR but they have fans and the fans will be happy. Move along.
