My Chemical Romance, an alternative rock group who gained popularity in the 2000s, is splitting up.

The group, who is known for their hit songs "I'm Not Okay," "The Ghost of You" and "Na Na Na," are calling it quits, according to a post on their official website.

"Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing," the post on their official website reads. "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," the post continued. "Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure."

The group, which consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, and bassist Mikey Way, has released four studio albums since their conception in 2001. The band co-headlined a tour with Blink 182 in 2011.

The group's frontman took to his Twitter account to express his feelings over the band's split, posting: "Beyond any sadness, what I feel the most is pride."

The group rose to fame during the "emo" music movement, and went platinum with their albums Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge and The Black Parade.
