MIKEY WAY is temporarily leaving My Chemical Romance to spend time with his new wife.
The bassist, who married Alicia Simmons in Las Vegas last month (08Mar07), will be replaced until his return.
Brother Gerard says, "The band has decided to give him and his wife a much needed break from the road to start a life and have a proper honeymoon and do all the things a newlywed couple should do.
"I'm very proud to announce my brother's recent marriage. Watching him grow up into a man and finding love makes me the happiest brother alive. I know this is upsetting news, as it is for us, but we will continues to tour with a temporary replacement until he has situated himself in his new life."
