“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.”
My Chemical Romance
New Jersey rock band My Chemical Romance (MCR) have split up after 12 years of being together.
A statement posted on the bands official website told fans the news that the band were to call it a day.
The band, who’s best selling album to date was 2006’s The Black Parade which went to number two in the UK charts, stated last year that they were to start work on their follow up album to 2010’s Danger Days…
Since the departure of drummer Bob Bryar before the release if Danger Days… the band, made up of Way brothers Gerard (vocals) and Mikey (bass), Frank Iero (guitar) and Ray Toro (guitar), have been playing with a series of session drummers and have not managed to replicate the success of The Black Parade.
No explanations of the split have been made public so far.
