Action Cat is the début solo track from the My Chemical Romance man.

The track is available to download from today.

It was produced by regular MCR collaborator Doug McKean.

Way's début solo album is released in the autumn. The record features Ian Fowles (guitar) of The Aquabats and Matt Gorney (bass). Gerard’s brother Mikey has also contributing backing vocals to a track.

“I am continuing full-steam into comics, art, and more importantly to some of you- music," he commented. "I am pleased to let you know I am now signed as a solo artist Warner Bros. Records. My album is near completion, and you should expect to hear things in the near future, even today actually- with a brief snippet of what is to come. I am excited. It’s starting again.”

Gerard Way is performing his first ever solo shows at this year's Reading and Leeds festivals.
