Joe From Fall Out Boy Addresses Rumors
 
Joe from Fall Out Boy tweeted, in response to the rumors yesterday that the band was already working on new songs, that they are "unfounded and untrue." And the world goes back to a Fall Out Boy-less existence.

Fall Out Boy fullfilled their own prophecy with Folie A Deux. Most of the lyrical content was about the end of the band. I think bands need to stop calling their own demise, I'm looking at you too Refused(except for the fact they reunited, but still).

Unsurprising.

Estatic!

Spencer Control 10/25/12 09:09 AM

Why wasn't everybody expecting this?

Nolessthanblink 10/25/12 09:10 AM

Unless it's the same as those tweets about Finch not ever playing live again, and then announcing a show a week later. New FOB press release coming next week!

Yeah right

scormier2 10/25/12 09:21 AM

SURPRISE EVERYONE! Another tweet about a reunion from someone not in the band is completely untrue. Who would've thought?

I wonder how they feel about a reunion now versus two years ago. Making millions to... not making millions with the opportunity to make a crazy amount of money must at least pique the band's curiosity.

Coverbydesign 10/25/12 09:54 AM

Meh was not getting my hopes to high just on the fact that I knew Joe was busy with his new metal band and Andy just joined a band.

Gaugzilla 10/25/12 10:06 AM

Wow. What a surprise!

zachff 10/25/12 10:19 AM

I really REALLY miss this band. I met a girl at a show earlier this week who said she went to their last headlining show with Blink and I was beyond jealous. We agreed they need to get back together soon but it doesn't seem likely as they're all 'doing their own thing'...even though none of it is anywhere close to as commercially successful as FOB. But c'est la vie.

I always have a hard time listening to their music now because while I love all of it, it makes me insanely nostalgic and wish that I'd gone to more than just 2 of their shows. :P

Joey-Wan Kenobi 10/25/12 12:08 PM

Don't you tease me with such ideas!

TheRealJohnOC 10/25/12 12:16 PM

Hey everyone..Fall out Boy, Armor for Sleep, Thursday and Thrice are all recording new music!!! I don't have a source or anything but believe me..they are!!!!!

How about you wait until a band member confirms it before you put it up as news.

I could be wrong, but I think maybe just to discuss the possibility with the posters? Or let the posters discuss it amongst themselves? Or let people make blue ball and heart break jokes while taking bad relationship cliches and applying them to this recurring tease?

I think it's seriously just because the threads sometimes turn out fun... If I knew how to use that shrugging face smiley thing, I would use it here.

Edit: also, I believe the news post was that someone had made these claims; not necessarily that it was happening.

mattregan 10/25/12 12:33 PM

I don't know. The singer who tweeted that is pretty famous...

That's the thing..every website jumped the gun when some nobody writer put a rumor out there. FoB knows that a shit ton of people want a reunion/them back. This isn't a rumor to test the waters of how many people would buy tickets to this.

dmcaloon 10/25/12 12:53 PM

No surprise at all. At least he still refers to the band as "we," implying that they're still around. Although I think we all knew that anyway.

You're absolutely right they know that, haha. I can't speak about any other site, and I could be wrong about the motive for this particular one, but I just think it was for the discussion regarding its possibility.

That is the most accurate statement I've ever seen on AP! One of my favorites ever. Not enough people know about them! There's no words for how much "Iconoclasm" means to me.

Djentleman 10/25/12 01:25 PM

probably lying so the actual members can be the ones to break the news they're back together

hopefully

henry chinaski 10/25/12 01:50 PM

Cool. Next stupid rumor please.

underdawg1119 10/25/12 02:21 PM

Expected as much. Still, :-(

PerfectChaos337 10/25/12 02:29 PM

Fall Out Boy was cool, and I legitimately liked FUtCT & TTTYG, but I see no urgent need for them to return. They made all the possible accomplishments a band from their scene could. They were part of a cool place in time/music, but aside from their diehard fans that would like to see them again, they should just leave the band finished. I have no desire to witness their music or aesthetic in a modern form.

randys950 10/25/12 03:10 PM

didnt some other dude a couple months ago say fob were back together?
maybe they are trying to keep it secret

gloriousmuse 10/25/12 03:32 PM

Funny how I've been on a FOB kick lately. I miss them.

beauvais910 10/25/12 04:22 PM

Just listened to From Under the Cork Tree last night damnit.
