In just a few short days, Gerard Way, Frank Iero, Mikey Way, and Ray Toro will finally hit the road for My Chemical Romance’s reunion tour. Starting off in Europe from May through June, the band will then make their way to North America in August, followed by appearances in New Zealand and Australia next March.
Ahead of this long-awaited event, My Chemical Romance revealed a surprise today: their first brand-new song in almost a decade. Yes, seriously. (Spoiler alert — it’s incredible.)
“The Foundations of Decay” marks My Chemical Romance’s first new song since “Fake Your Death,” which was released in 2014 as a part of the band’s greatest hits compilation album May Death Never Stop You.
Prior to their breakup in 2013, My Chemical Romance’s last show was at Bamboozle 2012 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The band later reunited on stage at The Shrine in Los Angeles in 2019 and announced their upcoming tour that was originally slated for 2020. The tour was delayed twice, pushed to 2021 and then 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
