Pete Wentz Hints at Fall Out Boy Split, Nation Rejoices


    Pete Wentz got a taste of freedom by teaming up with Mark Hoppus from blink-182 for the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack, and it seems he enjoyed it a little too much. The bass player has been making blog posts in which he says he “can’t imagine playing in Fall Out Boy again” and suggests that “we grew apart” when writing about his bandmates.


    “Every day for the past seven years of my life I woke up with a purpose,” he whined on his blog. “When I lost that, I lost part of me … Letting go of this giant part of my life has been hard, but I am convinced I will find something new that sparks me in a similar way.”


    Hilariously, and apparently without irony, Wentz signed off with the Latin motto “Acta est fabula,” which loosely translates as “the play is over.” But that noise you hear of champagne corks popping all over the globe might be premature. “There is the possibility that FOB will play again without me or I will be a part of it when everyone is on the same page,” he said in another post, no doubt to the relief of Wentz’s record label, who are counting the lucre earned by the 12 million Fall Out Boy albums sold to date.
