Emo kids, rejoice!
My Chemical Romance released its first new song in eight years on Thursday.
The 6-minute The Foundations of Decay is the band’s only release since 2014’s Fake Your Death, which was included on their greatest hits album.
This tune, intended for the band’s unfinished fifth album, came as a parting gift to fans after MCR announced their split in 2013. Since then, The Black Parade fans have been devastated.
But those holding out for a reunion were thrilled when the band announced their reconciliation in 2019. They played a single live show but the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed a full 2020 tour until now.
Fans can catch Gerard Way, Ray Toro, Frank Iero and Mikey Way on tour this summer. Her North American leg begins August 20th in Oklahoma City.
MCR is also on schedule for Riot Fest and the first-ever When We Were Young festival.
