Pete Wentz refuses to rule out Fall Out Boy reunion
Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has claimed that he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of the band reuniting in the future.
The Illnois rock quartet, who won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist and scored a US No.1 with fourth album, 'Infinity On High,' during the 00s, announced that they were taking an indefinite hiatus back in 2009, and haven’t recorded together since.
However, the 32-year-old told MTV News Canada that although they haven’t made any concrete plans to regroup, that doesn’t mean it will never happen:
"I think the kids are smart and they can tell when a reunion is done for the wrong reasons. I think it'll have to be when we all genuinely want to do it again.
“When you do it for seven years straight you start grading on each other. What you're doing becomes so normal, and it becomes a job. We never wanted to do it because it was a job, but I take the sage advice of Justin Bieber and say: Never say never!"
Since the band announced the break, Wentz has concentrated on raising his son with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson, formed ska/electro-pop band Black Cards and is currently pursuing a sideline as a dubstep DJ.
