Bassist says the band are having 'reunion sex'

Pete Wentz on Fall Out Boy reunion: 'We didn't think people would care'
Pete Wentz has revealed that he "didn't think people would care" about Fall Out Boy reuniting after a four-year hiatus.

Earlier this month (February), the band announced that they were reuniting to release new album 'Save Rock And Roll' and set off on a US tour. However, Wentz admits that he expected no one to turn up to the band's first show in Chicago.

"When we got on stage in Chicago, it was crazy," he told MTV News. "It was a rush, because we honestly didn't think people would care, and that's the truth. But it felt like we didn't miss a beat."

He added:

We're having the reunion sex, so like it's so awesome that we don't have to bring in the whips yet.


Wentz admits that he was worried how to act onstage now that he is older but says he's come to terms with the changes in the band's dynamic, saying it's "cool to do Fall Out Boy as Fall Out Men".

The bassist also said that the reunion has gone so well that the band are already beginning to talk about recording new songs – even though they've yet to release their comeback album, which is due out in April. "We have other cool ideas", he said. "But we're definitely not in that part of being in a band where you're like 'Oh, well, this dude likes this song, so I guess we'll put it on the album, and we'll probably never play it and nobody will care about it'."

Fall Out Boy will perform live in London tomorrow (February 25) when they headline The Underworld.
