Gerard Way was planning to follow up his 2014 debut solo album Hesitant Alien with a new record, but unfortunately it never got to see the dark light of day. To dig into the fans' wounds a bit more, the artist revealed what was going to be the title of the second LP.

According to Alternative Press, Way stated at Comic-Con that he was going to name it after his DC comic imprint, Young Animal. "When I realized I wasn't going to make a second solo album for the time being, I was like, 'I'll just use the album title as the name for my next project—whatever that ends up being," he said.

The singer announced his collaboration with DC back in April, saying "I wanted to form this little group, like a band, and then make crazy art—take these characters to places they haven't been in a long time, but also new places." Young Animal will include four series: Doom Patrol (out Sept. 14), Shade The Changing Girl (Oct.), Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye (Oct.) and Mother Panic (Nov.).
