Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way revealed that he ended My Chemical Romance in part, because he relapsed into alcoholism shortly before they released their 2010 album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
"I was self-medicating again to get through, and I’d forgotten how miserable that made me," Way recently told NME. "It took me to the dark place again, but there was more at stake this time."
In the interview, Way went on to say he realized his daughter Bandit growing up without a father was a real possibility. Ultimately, Way said, the choice was to "break the band or break (himself)."
My Chemical Romance called it quits back in March of last year after more than a decade together. Their final project, May Death Never Stop You, was released on March 25, 2014. The album contained a song, "Fake Your Own Death" which Way called the band's "eulogy."
