My Chemical Romance to release “Fake Your Death” next week

February 10 2014, 2:26 PM EST By Cassie Whitt

My Chemical Romance are set to release "Fake Your Death", the final song they recorded together, on Monday, February 17 according to a tweet and a Facebook post from the band's official accounts. 

According to the band's Facebook page, the song, which is track one of their upcoming greatest hits compilation May Death Never Stop You, will be released digitally on iTunes the evening of Monday, February 17 and will be delivered digitally those who purchased the compilation through MCR's official website-exclusive pre-order, as well.  

Fans are currently taking this announcement with a grain of salt, however, in light of the @MCRofficial account's recent multiple hackings and slightly suspicious wording. We have reached out to a representative for the band and hope to have a full confirmation soon. 

UPDATE: February 10 at 2:55 p.m.
The band have now posted the following on their official website:

"The previously unheard song “Fake Your Death” will be available at iTunes in the evening on Monday the 17th.  Get it here on that day.  If you’ve pre-ordered the album through, you’ll get the song delivered to you that day. - from Warner Bros Records."
UPDATE: February 10 at 4:02 p.m. EST
A representative from Warner Bros. has confirmed on Twitter that the single will be available at digital retailers other than iTunes, but "[probably] not until Tues."

May Death Never Stop You is set for release March 25 and will feature "Fake Your Death," the band's "attic demos" and unseen video footage.
