My Chemical Romance’s Drummer, Bob Bryar, Parts Ways With The Band

A few weeks ago My Chemical Romance’s drummer Bob Bryar parted ways with the band and this wasn’t an easy parting. My Chemical Romance had this to say:

“Hello Friends,
Recently it seems as though every time we write to you guys we have bad news, and we apologize for that, but we’ve learned in life you can’t have the sweet without the sour. As a band we have been very fortunate over the years that our sweet times have greatly outweighed the sour ones, and a great deal of that is owed to you, the fans. Which is why we wanted this news to come from us and not some bullshit gossip site.”

Read on for the full statement. As of 4 weeks ago, My Chemical Romance and Bob Bryar parted ways. This was a painful decision for all of us to make and was not taken lightly. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and expect you all to do the same.

We also wanted to give you all a quick heads up on how the record is progressing. We have been writing some very powerful new songs so this week the four of us entered the studio once again, and what has been ending up on tape each night is some of the most exciting and honest work we have ever created.

We hope this letter finds you well, we miss you… talk to you soon,
xo MCR”

Maybe it’s all for the best, but it seems like the new album will take longer to come out now. Hopefully it all works out.
