My Chemical Romance returns with their first new single since 2014


My Chemical Romancethe world-renowned alternative rock band, disbanded in 2013. Since then, there had been a number of shattered hopes in the form of their ‘Greatest Hits’ album. May death never stop yourevived hopes thanks to the leader Gerard Roadhis multiple collaborations with the guitarist Ray Toro for a bunch of singles under the umbrella of his solo work. On Halloween 2019, the band announced a reunion tour, which dealt with various COVID-related setbacks postponing dates for the safety of the band and the crowds. But even with a reunion tour soon on the horizon ahead of us all, MCR hadn’t released any new material for its listeners until today. Today, My Chemical Romance dropped a new six-minute single, “Foundations of Decay,” and it’s amazing.

“Foundations of Decay” is six whole minutes of rock that’s refreshing as all hell broke loose, but beyond that shows My Chemical Romance hasn’t aged a day, aurally speaking. . Their new single has a polished vibe, beginning almost like “High Hopes” with pink floyd but soon evolving into something not unheard of through The Smashing Pumpkins. The two groups, we may add, that My Chemical Romance have cited as inspirations for their music.
