[artist id=”1231843″]My Chemical Romance’s[/artist] brand-new “Sing” video doesn’t premiere until 12:01 a.m. ET on MTV.com, but you can get a sneak peek at some behind-the-scenes action right now.
Last month, MTV News was on set with the guys of MCR as they took over downtown Los Angeles in the very early morning hours to film “Sing,” the second clip from their upcoming Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album. It picks up right where the first video — the white-hot “Na Na Na” — ends, following the band’s Killjoy characters as they invade Battery City (and the headquarters of the evil Better Living Industries) in an attempt to rescue a mysterious little girl from the clutches of the nefarious Korse.
Do they succeed in their mission? Well, to be honest, we’re not sure if they succeed or not, mostly because, on the day we stopped by, MCR were busy burning rubber up and down a L.A. tunnel in their Killjoy Trans Am — they do all their own stunts, for the record — shooting several scenes in which they peel out, peer menacingly and, most awesomely, bust right on through a checkpoint manned by Blind Industry soldiers (and at least one Draculoid).
It looked like it was a blast, and in between takes, MCR frontman Gerard Way — who co-directs the video along with P.R. Brown — watched replays and laughed, almost as if he couldn’t believe he was being allowed to get away with this.
And then, daylight came and shooting was over. Trust us, we’re waiting to see how this whole thing plays out too. But before the big premiere — again, it’s at 12:01 am ET on MTV.com — check out our behind-the-scenes look at the making of My Chemical Romance’s “Sing.”
