All HARDCORE things must come to an end!
And sadly, it's time for the world to say good-bye to My Chemical Romance!
The pop-infused punk rock band has announced that after over ten years of music, touring, thieving drummers and bassists stepping out on their wives, they have decided that despite their time together being "a true blessing," that "it has come time for it to end."
In a blog post on their official website yesterday, Gerard and Mikey Way, Ray Toro and Frank Iero wrote:

We feel this will be the proper album MCR fans deserve!
My Chemical Romance has revealed that they're working on a new album, confirming that they are writing new songs "every day."
They admit that last year's album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys wasn't the band's best work.
Frontman Gerard Way explained that after the success of their third album The Black Parade, they suffered from burnout and after losing drummer Bob Bryar, they scrapped 28 songs before finally agreeing on the work that was released on Danger Days. He says:

This is kind of odd.
American Idol would NOT be the first place you'd look to find a My Chemical Romance song, but it looks like the band's new single Sing will be used as music during Idol promos.
Here's what MCR frontman Gerard Way had to say about it:
"We don't know for sure, but any kind of infiltration is great, so the offer was pretty much a no-brainer. It's something a lot of people are going to see and they'll hear the music which is the most important thing."
More from guitarist Frank Lero:
"I think it would be really cool if an actual band was heard on the biggest music TV show."
My Chemical Romance seems a bit out of place for the show, but maybe there's something cool about that. Guess we'll see when promos start airing.
Would U like to hear MCR on American Idol?
