The track comes as the opener of the band's upcoming greatest hits compilation "May Death Never Stop You," due on March 25 via Reprise Records. Make sure to check it out below.
Frontman Gerard Way recently discussed the tune, describing it as a "wave goodbye to all" in an official announcement. "I consider 'Fake Your Death' to be the 'last MCR song,' and to me, it is absolutely the final fully realized collaboration between the members of the band," he said.
Way ultimately concluded, "So it will exist, and it is no cowardly act to release something of this nature, but a service to those who believed in a band that did not compromise, and a wave goodbye to all. And yes, it is f--king heartbreaking. And while I don't believe the lyrics of the chorus today - I did at the time, which to me is a core ingredient to the music of MCR. And it is through that belief, and yours, that we were able to achieve many beautiful things."
"May Death Never Stop You" is available for pre-orders over on iTunes.
