MCR dropped their first new song since 2014’s “Fake Your Death” last week, the melancholy six-minute rave-up “The Foundations of Decay.” The band played the song for the first time live at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England on Monday night, where fans noted that the merch booth appeared to tip a possible theme for the band’s expected return around the theme “Swarm.” MCR broke up in 2013 and first announced plans for a reunion tour in the fall of 2019 and managed to play one show that December before the COVID-19 pandemic caused the outing to be pushed back multiple times; their North American tour is now slated to kick off on August 20 in Oklahoma City.
