The news comes after Gerard Way and co teased a UK date in June, leading fans to speculate they would perform at Download Festival or the world famous Somerset event.

A video teaser shared by the Teenagers outfit saw since the new year the Union Jack flag flash up amongst various pagan-looking symbols and figures.

One eagle eyed fan on Twitter happened to notice that the alternate symbols in the clip are part of the Theban alphabet, and spell out the word June.

Now the band have announced the Milton Keynes date, it's looking unlikely that they will appear at Download in Donington Park, Leicestershire, which takes place from 12-14 this year.

MCR also have five gigs confirmed for March, two in Australia, Japan and New Zealand.
