The new album has also been produced by Ray Toro.



Last year Electric Century, the side project from Mikey Way, announced the details of a brand new album/comic book. 

Now it looks as though the release is getting closer and closer, as we're getting a little taster of music. 

You can check out a snippet of the opening track 'Till We're Gone', which is set to be released in full on February 12 and has been described as "A track about seeking redemption through love."

As you hear it's set to be a throbbing slice of '80's tinged synth-pop with plenty of pomp and power to boot:
 


This is what the story of the graphic novel, and subsequently the album, will look like:

"Johnny Ashford, former sitcom-star, drives drunk through a storefront and gets arrested. His aspiring actress girlfriend bails him out and he begins seeing a hypnotherapist. Dr. Evers sends Johnny to his “happy place”: 1980’s Atlantic City, where he relives his childhood on the boardwalk, hardly noticing shadowy specters all around. Johnny’s addiction shifts from alcohol to his hypnotic trips to the boardwalk and the Electric Century casino, which satisfies his desire for fame. He discovers a way to stay there. In the real world, his girlfriend’s search for him leads her to Dr. Evers, who offers her a free session, and Johnny meets her on a beach by the boardwalk—her own “happy place.” Johnny brings her to his boardwalk, only to discover its true nature.  Johnny must find a way to save himself and his girlfriend, and escape the Electric Century."

And here's a little trailer for the release as well.
