My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way has collaborated with Deadmau5 on a new dance single.

'Professional Griefers', credited to Deadmau5 featuring Gerard Way, will be released on mau5trap/Parlophone on September 2.

The track features Way on vocals and a chorus of "Just give me a life, to plea/Another world outside that's full of/All the awful things that I made".

When the track first appeared online in March, neither Deadmau5 nor Way claimed credit for it. However, it is now getting an official release and an "epic" promo video will be unveiled next month (August).

'Professional Griefers' is not the first excursion into the rock world for Deadmau5. In February, the Canadian dance producer - real name Joel Zimmerman - took to the stage with Foo Fighters at the Grammy Awards.

Deadmau5 is currently midway through a European festival tour which has already included appearances at RockNess and Radio 1's Big Weekend, as well as a headline slot at London's Wireless Festival on July 6. He will return to the UK for a set at Creamfields on August 26.

Way and My Chemical Romance are currently recording a follow-up to their last album, 2010's 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys'.
