Rock group My Chemical Romance has announced that they are officially disbanding. In a statement on their website, the band thanks their fans and expresses gratitude for the experiences they have gone through.

Formed in 2001 in New Jersey, the band went on to release four studio albums that garnered millions of album sales and nearly as many single sales worldwide. MCR’s last album was 2010′s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

Below is the band’s official statement.

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.

    Though I haven’t heard anything from these emo douche bags in the last 6 years, it’s nice to hear they’ve finally broken up.

        What will Hot Topic play now?

    This band was the only thing that made me happy when I was going through a dark time. Self esteem issues, family problems, bullies. When I went to the hospital for the 1st time I just had their songs in my head. Now I’m 6 years sober from my addictions and (somewhat) happier this feels like a person who you love, cared about, and looked up to died. I’m 20 years old now and my 1st hospitalization was when I was 15. That was when the bottle I kept all my thoughts and things I wanted to say was getting so hot it just busted. Now I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Histrionic Personality Disorder and it still feels like my parents and family doesn’t care. Especially my grandfather.

    Yeah it’s about time. They should’ve stopped after “Three Cheers.”

    • xAshleyMariex

      Agreed. Their 1st two albums were really good…Danger days sucked and Black Parade was a little less than decent.

  • SelfishMan912

    it’s a shame that they went out on “danger days”, however the conventional weapons singles have all been awesome. either way, it’s sad to see them go.

    I’m 44 and I dug this band. Took my son to see them twice. “The Black Parade” was my favorite CD of that year. Despite their “emo” reputation, they wrote some great rock songs. But all bands die out eventually.

    Well, no big loss there.
