Alcohol took me to a dark place: Gerard Way

London: Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has spoken openly about his experiences with alcoholism.

The 37-year-old singer recounted how the problems he had led to the band breaking up, reportedly.

"I relapsed, not into drugs but booze. I was self-medicating again to get through, and I`d forgotten how miserable that made me," Way said.

"It took me to the dark place again, but there was more at stake this time. I started to face the hypothetical reality of my daughter Bandit not having a father," he added.

"I started taking that seriously, thinking, `I want her to have a dad. A guy that`s present. Because one way or another ? either by death or by asylum, she`s gonna be fatherless if I keep this up`. It was wither `Break the band or break me`."

The singer recently premiered a new song complete with a music video.
