The award winning band, My Chemical Romance has broken up after 12 years and 4 studio albums through a post on the band’s website on March 22, 2013.
“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. 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 this adventure,” MCR posted on their website mychemicalromance.com.
“I can assure you there was no divorce, argument, failure, accident, villain, or knife in the back that caused this, again this was no one’s fault, and it had been quietly in the works, whether we knew it or not, long before any sensationalism, scandal, or rumor,” explained the lead singer, Gerard Way, on artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com.
The band released a greatest hits album titled “May Death Never Stop You” a year after they announced their break up. The album includes one new song titled, “Fake Your Death.”
“I consider Fake Your Death to be the ‘last MCR song’, and to me, it is the final fully realized collaboration between the members of the band,” Gerard Way added on metalhammer.uk.co.
