NEW YORK (AP) — The chemistry is over: Rock outfit My Chemical Romance has disbanded.

The New Jersey-based band announced early Saturday that "it has come time for it to end." The foursome thanked their fans in a statement and said the experience was "a true blessing."

My Chemical Romance's sound is a mix of alternative, punk rock and pop. They released their debut album in 2002 but really made a splash in 2004 with the platinum-selling "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge." It featured the top-40 hit "Helena."

They followed that with another platinum effort in 2006 with "The Black Parade," earning their first top-10 pop hit with "Welcome to the Black Parade."

Their last album was in 2010.
