Hugely successful emo group My Chemical Romance have decided to call it a day.
All good things come to an end. When My Chemical Romance formed in New Jersey back in 2001, the band could never have anticipated their enormous global success.
Fast becoming cult properties, the band hit paydirt with 'The Black Parade' back in 2005. Teenage angst matched to stadium powered riffs, it reached number two on the British charts as the band began to conquer the globe.
Headlining Reading and Leeds back in 2011, My Chemical Romance later took a short break following an intense period of touring. Leading to a period of introspection, it seems that the group have decided that the time is right to end their career.
A message on the band's website states: "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 the adventure."
Here's 'Welcome To The Black Parade'.
