"It was about feeling freer and moving and being a little more fearless onstage, that’s what this was about, so I just had to get in shape. I grew up with severe body issues, and then basically used our wardrobe to shield those body issues for the entirety of the band’s career. It was, ‘Let’s see how much more we can keep covering and putting this body in a prison, because you feel bad about yourself.’"
Gerard Way, to Rolling Stone, December 2010
