My Chemical Romance Split – Band Announce News

Perennial punk-rockers My Chemical Romance have announced on their website that they’re splinting up after more than a decade of hit-making and four studio albums.

“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. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends,” they wrote. “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.” The band confirmed it, just in case anyone hadn’t got it from the previous quote. “And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all your support, and for being part of the adventure.” My Chemical Romance's lead vocalist and songwriter Gerard Way previously denounced the band’s label as an Emo band. "Basically, it's never been accurate to describe us, Emo bands were being booked while we were touring with Christian metal bands because no one would book us on tours.

I think emo is fucking garbage, it's bullshit. I think there's bands that unfortunately we get lumped in with that are considered emo and by default that starts to make us emo."
