Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman says he will step away from band to put “mental health first”


Fall Out Boy lead guitarist Joe Trohman mentioned he’s taking a break from the band to place his “mental health first.”

On Wednesday, Trohman, 38, mentioned in a social media publish on Fall Out Boy’s official web page that his psychological well being 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 mentioned.

Trohman, who shaped Fall Out Boy over twenty years in the past with singer Pete Wentz, famous he’ll step away because the band releases their new album, “So Much (For) Stardust” in March. It is their first studio album since 2018.

Nevertheless, Trohman mentioned he’ll “one-hundred percent” return to the band after his restoration.

“In the meantime, I must recover which means putting myself and my mental health first,” he mentioned. “Thank you to everyone, including my bandmates and family, for understanding and respecting this difficult, but necessary, decision.” 

Final 12 months Trohman launched his memoir, “None of this Rocks,” which chronicles his struggles with despair and substance abuse. Following his e-book launch, he opened as much as People magazine about his psychological well being journey and being a father to 2 younger daughters. 

“I’m a mentally ill person. And I grew up with a mentally ill parent, and I want things to be so much better for them,” he mentioned. “So I hope one day if they decide to read this book, they don’t feel embarrassed by it. And that maybe it’s possible it allowed them to get to know me in a way that maybe they could have never gotten to know me just by being around me with me and talking.”
