Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump
, who is currently recording his debut solo LP, has confirmed that he's no longer working with the group and doesn’t think they'll ever return from the hiatus they announced last November.
He told Spin
magazine: "I'm not in Fall Out Boy right now. But 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." Fall Out Boy (Getty)
He added, "I'm really not worried about Fall Out Boy. I'm so psyched about where I'm at right now, recording this solo album."
Following Patrick’s comments, his bandmates Andy Hurley
and Joe Trohman
also revealed they are no longer in the group. Drummer Andy tweeted: "I quit too."
Guitarist Joe added on his twitter page: "I just did interviews with Span Magazine, Rabbling Stone and Blunder about how much quitting I done."
The trio’s comments come after bassist and group spokesperson Pete Wentz
admitted this week he “can’t imagine” playing with Fall Out Boy again. He tweeted: "A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old. I don't plan on either. Can't imagine playing in FOB again."
He later added on his personal blog: “As a band we grew apart. Letting go of this giant part of my life has been hard."
A spokesperson would not comment on the band’s future.
