    Mikey Way sat down with Billboard:

    The band ended, and I was going through a divorce at the same time. I do the most stressful things in clumps. The way I knew how to deal with that, through life, was to self-medicate so that’s what I did. The tail end of My Chem was so dark for me — I was in a fog. Life caught up with me at that point, and I was getting by. I was in the ocean with the water by my lips. I was trying to stay up and I was failing. I had always self-soothed through narcotics from an early age.

    Nice, I remember the song, but forgot all about this band. Cool to see them up and running again.
  3. I remember reading lots of awful things (something about an affair, hence the divorce I guess) about him at the time, but I also didn't know he was a drug addict. Glad he got his life back.
