Gerard and Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance) discuss working with The Aquabats

December 04, 10:06 AM EST By Cassie Whitt

My Chemical Romance vocalist Gerard Way and bassist Mikey Way appear on today's installment of Kevin Smith's Smodcast. In the midst of the 2-hour episode, the Way brothers reveal details of their working on a new episode of The Aquabats Super Show.

Co-written by Gerard, the Aquabats Super Show episode titled "Anti-Bats Are Go" is described as "the Superman II version of The Aquabats." It features a thrashcore band called Asthma, and Mikey Way makes his acting debut playing the singer.

Last month, Gerard tweeted about co-directing a television show, presumably the aforementioned one:

The brothers also discuss the challenges of writing music after being on the road for an extended period of time and how that translated to 2010's Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, their musical upbringings, including the music they listened to when they were young and their first bands: an instrumental metal band pronounced "Drakkora," a Rites Of Spring and Promise Ring-esque band, Raygun Jones, and a punk band called Nancy Drew.
