Joe Trohman speaks on the future of Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy‘s lead guitarist Joe Trohman has opened up about the status of the band. Trohman told Rolling Stone, “I’d say there is a future. I honestly have no idea what it is. I don’t want that to sound ominous. We did Mania, and three records back to back, and we’re literally seriously taking time to be with families and make anything that anyone else wants to make without the looming schedule of Fall Out Boy overhead, which is great. It’s something that we all needed.”
He continued, “We all needed a break. We went back to back for years, again. And again, we learned that lesson first time around not to do that again, not to go nine years or whatever and then, like, beat ourselves into a hateful submission. This time it was what, five or six years? And we were like, ‘Cool, let’s give ourselves a healthy break from this’. But I mean, will there be Fall Out Boy again? Yeah, I do not see why not. Yes.”
