FALL OUT BOY guitarist JOE TROHMAN has announced he is stepping away from the band, citing mental health. FALL OUT BOY posted the following note from JOE on TWITTER:

“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),” he said. “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 news comes on the heels of FALL OUT BOY delivering their brand new single “Love From The Other Side” YESTERDAY (1/18) and a return to FUELED BY RAMEN where the band started 20 years ago. The band’s eighth studio album, So Much (For) Stardust, drops on MARCH 24th. It’s the band’s first new album in more than five years. FALL OUT BOY recently played on the THE HELLA MEGA TOUR global stadium tour alongside GREEN DAY and WEEZER.
