The members of the band Fall Out Boy have announced today that they are going to take an “indefinite” break from “band duties”. While “taking a break” is a not exactly the same as “breaking-up”, it seems to me that it could be the first step down that path. Could the end of Fall Out Boy be near?
Fall Out Boy are set to take an “indefinite” break from band duties, their spokesperson has confirmed. Pete Wenz and the rest of the Chicago four-piece are set to step away their musical commitments within the band and have not set a schedule for any possible return. “It’s a break with an indefinite date when they’re coming back,” their spokesperson told NME.COM. The band are set to release a greatest hits compilation album, ‘Believers Never Die’, on November 30.
HMMM … while this announcement isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, the timing of this “indefinite break” (ie. after the release of a greatest hits album) seems kinda suspicious. Might the time be right for members of FOB to launch solo careers? Could the plan be for the guys to move into other directions? Pete Wentz, avid Twitter user, has been curiously silent on this announcement today … so I think I’ll hold off on making any assumptions until we hear more from the guys themselves. Even still … this news is a bit worrisome. What do y’all think … is Fall Out Boy about to be dunzo?
