My Chemical Romance Call It Quits
My Chemical Romance have split after 12 years together.
The band announced the news on their website on Friday night (March 21). The N.J. natives posted a heartfelt message to fans explaining that there wasn’t any internal drama — things had simply just run their course for the group.
“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,” MCR wrote. “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 released four full length albums over their dozen year span together, breaking through with 2005’s major label debut ‘Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge’ and its followup ‘Welcome to the Black Parade’ each going Platinum. The band had a hard time achieving the same success with 2010’s ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys,’ which moved a mere 110,000 copies.
