Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump says he is no longer working with the group, echoing sentiments made earlier this week by bassist Pete Wentz, with the rest of the band also announcing their departures
Fall Out Boy have split up.
Frontman Patrick Stump - who is currently recording his debut solo LP - has confirmed he is no longer working with the group and doesn't think they will 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.
"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. (sic)"
The trio's comment 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.
