News Flash: Bob Bryar Leaves My Chemical Romance

March 4, 2010 at 4:30 am 1 comment

According to My Chemical Romance‘s official website, the band has parted ways with drummer Bob Bryar.

Though the split apparently happened a month ago, this is a huge bomb to drop on fans now, as the band is still in the studio working on their fourth, as-yet-untitled album.

The post reads:

“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.

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”

The wording of the post makes it sound like the other four members kicked Bob out, but I’ll update this post as soon as I found out the deal. Although I’m sure this will be incredibly tough for the band, I still selfishly hope that this doesn’t delay the release of their new record, which many have been waiting for for nearly four years.
