Just a couple of years after releasing the critically rated album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, My Chemical Romance has decided to call it quits. The band shared the news with fans on Friday, stating that the last twelve years together has been a blast, but that it's time to call it quits. At the very least, this should give lead singer Gerard Way time to work on his comic book endeavors.
The band officially posted the news via its website, and there doesn't seem to be any regrets over the decision. In fact, the statement the band drafted only seems to offer fond memories of the groupís years on the road.
ďBeing 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.Ē
Of course, things havenít always been so rosy for My Chemical Romance. The bandís been rolling with a slew of different drummers ever since Michael Pedicone was fired after the other band members caught him stealing cash. That drama aside, the band is leaving behind plenty of great performances and a few albums they can be proud of. That's more than a lot of musical outfits will ever be able to say.
