Fall out Boy falling out?
Rockers Fall Out Boy appear to have fallen out – if ‘tweets’ written by bassist Pete Wentz are anything to go by.
In a series of recent posts on his blog, Wentz has confirmed the band are currently on hiatus, and hints that it might be a permanent thing.
He writes, “I don’t know the future of Fall Out Boy. It’s embarrassing to say one thing and then have the future dictate another. As far as I know Fall Out Boy is on (a) break.
“As much as I don’t have a solo project, I also can’t predict that I’d ever play in Fall Out Boy again.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 2009, Wentz explained he and his bandmates desperately needed a break from each other: “We’ve been seven years straight of just driving albums and tour, tour, tour. Everybody just needs to decompress.”
The band formed in 2001 and became a big deal four years later, when their debut album From Under the Cork Tree achieved double platinum status after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the United States alone.
They have since become one of America’s top bands.
