Fallout Boy is on a break, but is not breaking up, according to Pete Wentz. Pete says that the band “just got burned out” but they haven’t definitively called it quits.
“We’re just on a break. I think that after having Bronx, and with my wife [Ashlee Simpson] having this much of a workload right now, it has been such a good thing for me. There’s nothing I wanna be better at in the world than being a dad.”
Echoing a sentiment that has most likely been typed on many a blog by mourning emo hipsters, Wentz added, “Before, it was like I might not be okay if Fall Out Boy doesn’t come back. But I think I’ll be okay. It’s too soon to say [if we’ll we back]. We just got burned out.”
Take a lesson from Pete, eyeliner clad minions: if he can learn to live without Fallout Boy, so can you.
