My Chemical Romance Breaks up After 12 Years Together
My Chemical Romance, the alternative rock band that has been making music and turning out hits since 2001 has determined to break apart.
The band posted a heartfelt farewell to their fans on their website late Friday.
“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” (mychemicalromance.com)
The group had such hits as “Welcome to the Black Parade”, “Teenagers”, “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)”, “Helena”, and “Na Na Na”.
The New Jersey band’s debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, came out in 2002. Their fourth album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys came out to positive reviews in November 2010.
My Chemical Romance has not offered any further comment on their decision to split.
