Fall Out Boy To Take An Indefinite Break, The Band Confirm

November 18, 2009
Fall Out Boy To Take An Indefinite Break, The Band ConfirmFall Out Boy are taking an indefinite break, the band have confirmed.

The four members explained thbey have decided to focus on other avenues while they part company for the time being, adding:“We don’t know the future of Fall Out Boy!”

In the interview with Kerrang! Magazine, Pete Wentz partly blames his celebrity status and high profile relationship with Ashlee Simpson as one of the main reasons for the hiatus.

He said: “My biggest personal reason for taking a break is that I feel my name has become a hindrance for the band.

“(Patrick) is a musical genius and it's unfortunate that he gets reviewed based on whatever's going on in my personal life or how my hair looks.

“I think the world needs a little less Pete Wentz. A lot of people think Fall Out Boy is me. But it's the four of us. I want to fucking vomit when I read intros that say, 'Pete Wentz: accidental internet poster boy.' It makes me feel ugly.

"People who read the tabloids probably think all I do is visit Starbucks and hang out in nightclubs."

Fall Out Boy's best of album 'Believers Never Die: Greatest Hits' was released this week.
