Patrick Stump says he was misquoted, and didn’t rule out a Fall Out Boy reunion.
“That quote is way taken out of context,” the 27-year-old said in blog post. “As is the implication that I ‘Don’t want to do Fall Out Boy when I’m 40’, (which is literally not a quote of mine). All I meant by any of it is that I don’t want to wait until I’m 40 to do another Fall Out Boy record, and if it takes that long, then I won’t do one.
“I am confident that we’ll have a record out sooner than later,” he added, “but there are currently no plans. No ‘two years,’ no ‘six years,’ no parameters. It might happen later than any of that, it might happen sooner. It is literally, as it’s always been, an indefinite hiatus. We never did breakup, we’re still friends, and we still would like to make music together.
“That said, I’d like to formally put this issue to rest. I think I’ve talked about it enough in the past two years and if anything it’s silly talking about hypotheticals in detail. Who knows? I promise I will let everybody know as soon as there are concrete plans or if anything changes, but from here on until Fall Out Boy does have actual news, I’m going to just not talk about it.”
