As their new era kicks off, Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman have announced that he is sitting things out for the moment.
Fall Out Boy have just announced the details of their 8th studio album ‘So Much (For) Stardust’, which will be arriving on March 24 via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2.
But the new era comes with another announcement from guitarist Joe Trohman, who has revealed that he is taking a break from the band for the time being.
You can read the statement in full below:
“Neil Young once howled that it’s better to burn out than to fade away. But I can tell you unequivocally that burning out is dreadful. Without divulging all the details, I must disclose that my mental health has rapidly deteriorated over the past several years. So, to avoid fading away and never returning, I will be taking a break from work which regrettably includes stepping away from Fall Out Boy for a spell.
It pains me to make this decision, especially when we are releasing a new album that fills me with great pride (the sin I’m most proud of). So, the question remains: Will I return to the fold? Absolutely, one-hundred percent. In the meantime, I must recover which means putting myself and my mental health first. Thank you to everyone, including my bandmates and family, for understanding and respecting this difficult, but necessary, decision.
Smell you sooner than later,
The band released the first taste of ‘So Much (For) Stardust’ in the form of ‘Love From The Other Side’.
That looks and sounds like this:
