After releasing their debut single "Na Na Na" (from their Nov. 22 album Dangerous Days: the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and teasing behind-the-scenes footage of the video, My Chemical Romance have unleashed a second track from the record, the blistering, fist-pumping rocker "The Only Hope For Me Is You." Hear it below.

As SPIN previously reported, My Chemical Romance have expanded their emo-punk sound on their new record, experimenting with Beatles-inspired psychedelia and Ramones-esque punk. And while "The Only Hope For Me Is You" hews closer to classic My Chem - chugging guitar riffs, arena-sized drums and Gerard Way's lyrics about overcoming alientation - the band does branch into new sonic terrain, with cool techno-style synths and Radiohead-ish atmospherics.
