Rock group My Chemical Romance has broken up, after a decade of playing music together.
The New Jersey-based group released a statement Saturday saying “it has come time for it to end.” The four-member group also thanked fans and said that what they had was “a true blessing”.
The band first entered the music mainstream in 2004 with their album, “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge,” which went platinum that year. They followed the success with another platinum selling record, “The Black Parade,” in 2006.
According to the statement, the group said they have “shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends.”
Members included Gerard Way for vocals, Mikey Way for bass, and Ray Toro and Frank Jero for guitars. Their last album was released in 2010, named “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.”
