Fall Out Boy Guitarist Joe Trohman made an Instagram post
The 38-year-old Fall Out Boy Guitarist posted on the band’s official Instagram account, “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,” He added, “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,” he continued.
Joe also wrote, “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). So, the question remains: Will I return to the fold? Absolutely, one hundred percent.” He concluded with the words, “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.”
