The chemistry is over: rock outfit My Chemical Romance splits after 12 years. The band announced their breakup through their website on Friday.

"Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing," the announcement said. "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."

Band members included vocalist Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way and guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero. The band, formed in 2001 by high school friends Way and Pelissier, was a major force in the mainstreaming of emo. Their last album was 2010's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
