My Chemical Romance (2004-2010)[edit]

Bryar befriended My Chemical Romance while being a successful sound technician with The Used on tour. When My Chemical Romance fired their drummer Matt Pelissier in 2004, the band immediately hired Bryar.

Two days after that, they went on tour.[1] Bryar's first album with the band was The Black Parade. On March 3, 2010, it was announced on the official My Chemical Romance website that Bob Bryar was no longer part of the band. The Band wished him luck in his future endeavors.[2]
