There's no word on whether this single means MCR fans will be getting a full album, though there's no doubt it would be welcomed.

Their last studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, was released in 2010, while their post-breakup greatest hits compilation May Death Never Stop You released in 2014 featured new track Fake Your Death.

Whether or not the band release any more material, their fans have a huge string of reunion dates to look forward to, which were previously put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, Gerard Way and co will start off in the UK with a headline show at the Eden Project before playing three consecutive dates at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes and heading to Dublin, Warrington, Cardiff and Glasgow.
