My Chemical Romance has released a new song for the first time eight years.

The track, titled “The Foundations of Decay,” arrives ahead of the beloved “Helena” band’s reunion tour, which launches next week in the U.K.

You can listen to “The Foundations of Decay” now via digital outlets.

“The Foundations of Decay” is the first new MCR tune since 2014’s “Fake Your Death,” which was released as part of the band’s post-breakup compilation May Death Never Stop You. The most recent My Chem album of new original music is 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

My Chemical Romance announced their reunion in 2019, six years after calling it quits in 2013. Their reunion tour, which was originally scheduled for 2020 before being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, comes to the U.S. in August.
