Taking to Instagram to announce the new material, the My Chemical Romance frontman also revealed more information about the pair of tracks. Way shared that “PS Earth” was recorded during the tail end of the Hesitant Alien demo sessions, adding, “I liked it well enough at the time, felt kind of 90’s, didn’t end up putting any vocals on it though. I like the bridge a lot. Looking back at the whole thing, I like it, but not sure if I’m going to finish it.” Meanwhile, “Crate Amp_01” was born from more technical experimentation with his Crate amp, an old Peavy amp and his BC Rich Mockingbird guitar.
The songs arrive just a few weeks after Way shared the Distraction or Despair collection with four previously unreleased tracks, including the “Crate Amp_02” successor.
