Fall Out Boy is Falling Out

The band is not currently together.

It seems as if Fall Out Boy may have had a falling-out. People.com reports that the four band members say their breakup is friendly, but Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump have confirmed that the band is not currently together.

Fall Out Boy is known for pop-punk hits, “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” and “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race,” among others.

Yesterday, bassist Wentz wrote on his blog, “Fall Out Boy is on break . . . I can’t predict that I’d ever play in Fall Out Boy again. Not due to personal relationships as much as a band we grew apart.” He added on Twitter that to continue in the band, “Something would have to change in my head or my heart—not my wallet. It’d have to be real.”

Front man Stump gave a more concrete answer to Spin.com. “I’m not in Fall Out Boy right now.”

However, the band members (Stump, Wentz, Andy Hurley, and Joe Trohman) aren’t denying the possibility of a reunion someday. “One way or another, the band will always be around,” said Stump. So the band is on hiatus, but fans can hold onto hope.
