My Chemical Romance splits

Los Angeles - US alternative rock band My Chemical Romance have split up after 12 years together, the group confirmed on their website on Saturday.

The band was founded in New Jersey in 2001, comprising members Gerard Way, Ray Toro, Mikey Way and Frank Iero.

"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," the statement said.

"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."

The group recorded four studio albums, most notably the platinum-selling Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge in 2004, followed by The Black Parade two years later.

Their best known hits include 2006's Welcome to the Black Parade and 2010's Sing.

    There's 5 people on the pic but the story only mentions 4. Also in what universe are those their best known songs?

      Terry Ferreira - 2013-03-24 16:35

      Those are the 4 original members. The original drummer was replaced after I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. Then he was also replaced after Black Parade. The part mentioning the 4 members is more than likely just a copy paste from wikipedia.
