My Chemical Romance are ending their 12-year career as a band
My Chemical Romance are calling it quits. Fronted by singer Gerard Way, the alternative rock band formed 12 years ago in New Jersey, and since then, they’ve dropped four full-length studio albums and scored countless rock radio hits.
“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing,” the band said in an official statement on mychemicalromance.com. “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.”
All in all, My Chemical Romance scored over a dozen rock radio hits, including “The Ghost of You,” “Helena,” “Welcome to the Black Parade,” “I’m Not Okay,” “Famous Last Words,” “Na Na Na,” “Sing” and “Bulletproof Heart,” to name some. The band’s latest album, “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys,” arrived in 2010 and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.
