My Chemical Romance‘s new video for forthcoming single ‘The Kids for Yesterday’ came out of a fan’s previous ideas released to the world. It’s described by the band as follows:
Hello friends… Here is the official video for our new single ‘The Kids From Yesterday’. This will be the last single released from our album ‘Danger Days’, and we decided what better song to end on than our collective favorite. This song means a lot of different things to us individually and we hope it speaks to you as well. When deciding what kind of video would work the best with the song we immediately thought of a “video collage” …something that would show the progression of the band over the past 10 years leading up to one of our most memorable moments, closing the Reading and Leeds festivals this past summer. We began collecting footage and literally stumbled upon an incredible video done by a talented young lady named Emily Eisemann. She had made a fan video, put it up on YouTube and it summed up what we had been trying so very hard to make, perfectly. So we gave her a call, put our videos together, and the rest, as they say, is history.
