Stump: ‘I’m not in Fall Out Boy’
The future of Fall Out Boy looks increasingly uncertain – frontman Patrick Stump has declared he’s no longer in the band.
Bassist Pete Wentz confirmed the group is on a break in a series of posts on his blog earlier this month, hinting the hiatus could be permanent.
He wrote, “I don’t know the future of Fall Out Boy… A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old. I don’t plan on either.”
Stump has now echoed his bandmate’s sentiments, insisting he’s too busy working on a solo project to be concerned about the Dance, Dance hitmakers.
He tells, “I’m not in Fall Out Boy right now… I’m really not worried about Fall Out Boy. I’m so psyched about where I’m at right now, recording this solo album.”
But the singer isn’t convinced the band will fade away: “One way or another, the band will always be around. Steven Tyler isn’t in Aerosmith anymore, but his gravestone will probably say something about Aerosmith.
“Whether we play again or not, I don’t know. If we do, it will be for the right reasons. If we don’t, it will also be for the right reasons.”
