MENUMENU

Solo

Any new music news will appear here!

Hey everyone! I know we’ve gotten a little behind on weekly recap. I’ve been working on a lot of projects that are coming up for GWayFUN and I just haven’t had enough time in the day to get to everything. To make it up to you this weeks edition will be the last two weeks to catch up! Enjoy!

Meanwhile it would seem Number five was hard at work.

Tuesday, January 22nd 2019

Hazel showed off his sweet tooth.

While Gerard appeared to be having fun with water balloons. Facing some fears perhaps?

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Umbrella Academy announced that a new trailer would be coming on Thursday!

Meanwhile Gerard was busy freaking out.

and so were we.

Thursday, January 24th 2019

Lola came on to be excited with us while we waited for the new trailer to arrive.

Luckily we didn’t have to wait long and the trailer was initially dropped via Entertainment Weekly.

Their write up also filled us all in that Gerard was in fact singing in the trailer!

After their post Umbrella Academy also made sure the trailer was easily accessible to us!

(and we can speak from personal experience that they give the best hugs!)

Lindsey Way also was around to show her excitement.

And to keep the party going Lola made sure to let us know that they would be around to binge Umbrella Academy with us on Feb 15th!

And as if there wasn’t enough to be excited about, Lola quickly dropped another bomb on us by releasing Gerard’s new song from the show- Hazy Shade of Winter!

And could we really have a day like this without hearing from the man himself?

Once it was available, Lola made sure to give us the link to be able to purchase or stream Hazy Shade of Winter! (If you haven’t gotten it yet, get on it!)

Friday, January 25th 2019

Lola came back around to ponder snacks and make it clear they’d be around to binge with us.

They also indirectly called us odd in the process. We’re ok with that. haha

And since snacks were on our mind. We also had a delicious conversation with Umbrella Acad as well.

We also, through the help of some friends looking out, learned that there was new merch in the G store!

And we got a picture we had never seen before from the actress that plays Young Vanya.

And thanks to another friend we learned that the new Umbrella Academy merch at TFAW.com was also on sale (and it still is!)!

Saturday, January 26th 2019

Nick Derington is eagerly awaiting the Doom Patrol show that is being streamed on the DCU starting Feb 15th as well.

Sunday, January 27th 2019

Mikey Way posted a sweet post in support of his brother. To which Gerard replied to with 3 hearts.

We also got this laugh imagining Gerard write a song about weed for Kevin Smith.

Monday, January 28th 2019

Umbrella Academy put a spotlight on Pogo and we couldn’t be more excited to see him in action!

Tuesday, January 29th 2019

Lola let us know of a new promotion at the G store.

And left us with this hilarious thought to ponder.

The excitement was so big for the promotion that supplies ran out within SIX hours!

In other news Gerard seemed to have a “Great night” doing something Umbrella Academy related with UCP but we’re not quite sure what we’re just glad he had a great time.

Meanwhile Umbrella Academy showed us the cutest bunnies we’ve ever seen on the internet.

Wednesday, January 30th 2019

We woke up to some new posts from UCP promoting Umbrella Academy on instagram!

You should give them a follow if you haven’t already!

We also got to learn a little bit about Mother.

…or at least we think we did. 😉

With the promotion at the G store selling out so fast Lola worked quickly to make sure we got a new promotion as a thank you! We personally couldn’t be more thrilled with the Lola doll we just bought! You should grab one too!

Thursday, January 31st 2019

We’re not sure who is more excited about Umbrella Academy being released, Gabriel Ba or us!

Lola also came around to hang out for a little bit and also seems to be pretty excited.

 

Friday, February 1st 2019

We woke up to a plethora of early reviews for Umbrella Academy and all of them were raving about UA being the next big thing and a must see!

And after a courageous speech by Ellen Page, who called out our hateful leadership and took a stand for the LGBTQ community, Umbrella Academy had this wonderful reaction to give.

It was nice to see Gerard and the show supporting her.

We also started a new giveaway to celebrate Valentine’s day and the Umbrella Academy release to Netflix (It doesn’t end until 2/23 so you can still get in on it)! We also thought it was pretty neat that Lola came on to retweet and like a few of your replies!

And we got news that Shade the Changing Woman was released in Italy for our friends who speak Italian!

We also got a new interview from Ellen Page, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallaghar.

Saturday, February 2nd 2019

And we ended the week with a funeral. We didn’t like him all that much so it’s ok though.

And there you have it. A two week recap! Hope you enjoyed and we’ll be back to being on time next week!

 

 

Alot happened this week! From CCXP to Press Conferences to new music! Let’s get into it!

Sunday Dec 9th, 2018

We got a new Umbrella Academy poster!

Although they didn’t have any scheduled public events together on this day, Gerard and the cast of Umbrella Academy posed for this picture. We believe they may have been doing press.

At 3pm Brazilian time Gerard did a signing with Gabriel Ba.

And stopped to pose for this pic with a fan after the signing.

Gerard posted about Umbrella Academy being out on Feb 15th (as if we needed to be amped up some more haha)

And his ever amazing little brother posted to let us all know he’s proud!

Monday Dec. 10th, 2018

Umbrella Academy posted this picture on Instagram from Friday.

We also learned that on Friday night there was a taping of a late night talk show called The Noite that aired at 12:45am Tuesday in Brazil.

We knew Gerard was doing interviews on Monday but were shocked when this picture turned up and we were unable to locate a source.

Luckily with the help of our amazing friends at GWayFUN we were able to learn this was from a Press Conference from earlier in the day.

So far the only thing we’ve been able to find from the press conference was this video, but it’s in Portuguese.

And we also got this fun little clip that shows Gerard throwing a donut at the panel on Saturday.

And on a personal note, we posted our recap of CCXP! If you want full details of the con from Friday to Monday just click the link below!

Tuesday Dec. 11th, 2018

The Noite wasted no time getting their video posted of their interview after it had aired.

Also our friends Humbug and Lisa announced their comic, Deathwish, is now available for pre-order and will start shipping on Dec 21st!

Wednesday Dec, 12th, 2018

Gerard updated his instagram story!

Umbrella Academy started releasing a new line of promo posters for the cast of the show!

Gerard had fun with his toys…

But the big news of the day was that Cave Carson has an Interstellar Eye trade paperback was released! Make sure to pick it up the next time you’re out at your local comic book shop!

Thursday Dec. 13th, 2018

We started our day off with the most amazing news! Kristin and Mikey are expecting their second child!

Gerard also got in on the celebration!

Umbrella Academy posted this cool new gif of Hazel and Cha-Cha.

And when they posted it to Instagram, Gerard gave the best reply.

And then, thanks to the pre-order date on the Dasher merch in the G store, we were able to announce first (once it became midnight for one of our staff members, Ally, in Italy) that we were in fact getting the song on Dec. 14th!

A few hours later the ever wonderful Lola came on to confirm this and give us a sneak peak of the lyric video…

…which was followed up with a similar post from Gerard.

Friday Dec. 14th, 2018

As promised at midnight we received the song and the official lyric video (unless you live in the western parts of the US then you got it a little earlier).

After we had all slept, Gerard came around on Instagram to update his Instagram story.

And so did the featured artist on Dasher, Lydia Night!

And Umbrella Academy gave us a new promo photo!

We also held a friendly debate on our twitter asking what everyone thought the lines “She’s got dashes in her stars” means. We got a lot of really thoughtful insightful responses. Totally worth checking out the thread!

We also got a post from Ian Fowles that confirmed he played guitar on Dasher.

And our favorite little brother posted in support of Gerard’s new song!

Saturday Dec. 15th, 2018

And to end the week Gerard updated his instagram story…

…and we found some neat merch at Hot Topic on our Christmas shopping travels.

We hope you all enjoyed this weeks recap and had a lovely week yourselves!

On Nov 15th we got a cryptic message from Lola telling us to be excited for something coming the next day….

We didn’t have to wait long since at the time of Lola’s post it was already hitting midnight in some countries and people were beginning to post about getting it. A quick google search was able to turn up proof that a new song called Getting Down the Germs was on it’s way!

On October 22nd Gerard broke the internet when he posted a small clip of a new song and promised it’s release on October 26th, 2018!

When the song released at midnight on Oct 26th we also received this snazzy lyric video!

And the always helpful Lola was there to make sure we had this handy link to be able to buy the track!

And they also let us know there was new merch that could be picked up in the G store! store.gerardway.com

Once the song was released Gerard took to instagram to let us know a few details about the song, including that Mikey Way played bass.

The song did great! It even reached #4 on iTunes Alternative chart!

And once the lyric video hit over one million views, Gerard celebrated by giving us a little info behind the scenes of the video!

Baby You’re A Haunted House— The lyric video. We hit over one million views so I wanted to take this chance to talk about the lyric video for the song. We wanted to do something a little more special than a standard lyric video for this, so I wrote a brief treatment and sent it over to Devin Sarno (@devinsarno) at Warner Bros Records. Devin has been helping me make videos since I’m Not Ok, when we collaborated with Marc Webb, and has always been so great about making the artist’s vision the most important thing, really helping bring it to life. And I knew I wanted Claire Vogel (@oclaire) to shoot it, as she is a brilliant director. Claire is someone who worked with MCR on the Danger Days videos and I was eager for another chance to work with her. So we sent her the treatment and she went and made it! Gathering all the costumes,  and some friends who knew how to play instruments, she shot the whole thing. It came out even better than it was in my head when Mikey Way gave me the idea. When he was recording bass for the song, he said that he could picture a video like one of those old monster cartoons from the 60’s of musicians toe tapping and Beatle-bopping to the song. And I thought we should make that happen! Albeit, less of a black and white 60’s tv show and more of an old Russian tv show. So there you go. Hope you enjoyed it! #byahh Special thanks to @wbr for giving us a generous budget to make this happen!

A post shared by Gerard Way (@gerardway) on

All in all a fantastically successful song release and we couldn’t be happier to have this track added to our every playlist! Great song!
