Fall Out Boy went down, down in an earlier round of their musical career, and despite Internet rumblings and rumors, they’re not getting back up for a reunion.
Though good information was scant, we reported earlier that the pop punk band Fall Out Boy was considering coming out of their 3-year-plus hiatus for a reunion set for some time in 2013.
Property of Zack exclusively confirmed with “several trusted sources” that the reunion was in the bag, but if that report is still true, Fall Out Boy is apparently planning on reuniting without their guitarist (and founding member) Joe Trohman.
“The rumors are still untrue, unreal & totally outta this world!” Trohman wrote on his Twitter page. “Seriously, it’s not going down.”
The rumors of Fall Out Boy’s reunion alleged a tour and possibly a new album, with a formal announcement expected in the coming weeks. The idea of a reunion seemed to make sense to fans, especially considering the news that Pete Wentz’s ex Ashlee Simpson was planning on releasing a new single rumored to be about him, reports PopCrush.
Fall Out Boy went on hiatus in 2009, with all members pursuing side projects. Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley joined the Damned Things, while Hurley has also played for the Burning Empires and Enabler. Patrick Stump, the group’s frontman, started working on a solo career, with the release of the critically acclaimed Soul Punk. Wentz joined the Black Cards.
None of the side projects have come near the commercial success of Fall Out Boy, causing industry analysts to predict that a reunion is only a matter of time.
Just not, you know, now.
The rumors are still untrue, unreal & totally outta this world! *shreds gnar, does surf’s up hand signal*. Seriously, it’s not going down.
