Emo gods My Chemical Romance bless your evening with first new track in eight years

The most beloved and revered of the mid-2000s emo boom, My Chemical Romance released its first new song in eight years today.

“The Foundations Of Decay” reunites The Black Parade for another round of screaming, singing, twinkly guitars, and judd judd metalcore breakdowns.

The last new track from Gerard Way and the boys came in 2014.

The band included the unreleased track “Fake Your Death” on their post-humous greatest hits album, May Death Never Stop You

Their last full-length album of new material came in 2010

First, My Chemical Romance announced a reunion in a different world: fall 2019.

The band played a show in December, but then the world ended

The band postponed the reunion tour, which they pushed until 2021.

Then the darnedest thing happed, the tour was delayed again because of COVID.

The first part begins later this month in the U.K. and Europe, with a North American tour starting on August 20.

The band will also headline this year’s Riot Fest with The Misfits and Nine Inch Nails.
