EDM superstar Deadmau5 announces a new album, offers a single with My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way, then says he’s taking a break from music.
Hot producer Deadmau5 locked himself away in his newly renovated Toronto studio and has finished a new album, wryly title >album title goes here<.
It’ll be lead by the first single ‘Professional Griefers’ with guest vocals from Gerard Way, frontman from My Chemical Romance, on August 14.
But, a few days back, he posted a message on his tumblr that he’s going to “unplug” for a time to “figure out whatever the fuck it is i do” because he’s “basicly [sic] pretty miserable right now”.
Read the whole missive below:
“So heres whats happening. im going to unplug for a wee bit. which doesnt mean im cancelling any upcoming shows or anything, im just gunna slam on the breaks for a bit and force myself to endure some quiet time. in that time, obviously the gears will still be moving, ill still be writing, and the releases will still come out (heads up for something crazy real soon like) and yeah.
“i got a lot of work to do on some stuff. so, best i just chill the fuck out a bit and just get it done, and get it done RIGHT, until im 100% satisfied with it. Then our regularily scheduled program shall continue. but yeah, im basicly pretty miserable right now and need to pull the fuck back and figure out whatever the fuck it is i do.”
