My Chemical Romance has taken to its Web site to explain why it was forced to cancel an appearance last weekend at San Diego's Street Scene festival. Initially the band would only explain the situation was due to "unforeseen circumstances," but rumors spread that members had been injured, possibly in a car accident.

Now, the band has come clean about an accident that took place Aug. 3 while shooting a video for an unidentified track from its upcoming album. According to MCR's site, frontman Gerard Way "tore multiple ligaments in his ankle" while drummer Bob Bryar "received a bad burn to the back of his leg."

The group attempted to rehearse for its planned Saturday Street Scene appearance but it "proved impossible. The pain was overwhelming and we could not pull through without further injuring ourselves." Way and Bryar are expected to make complete recoveries.

As previously reported, the band's as-yet-untitled new album is due Oct. 24 via Reprise.
