Pete Wentz and co tell NME they want to end the feud
The groups were at loggerheads after Killers frontman Brandon Flowers criticised the band on NME.COM late last year.
However Fall Out Boy insist there is “no animosity on our part” and want to take the Las Vegas band out for dinner.
“We played Vegas the other night and we invited The Killers to our party afterwards, but they didn’t show. I think they were recording,” Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz told NME.COM. “He hasn’t officially accepted my invitation yet. I think it would be awesome. He’s probably a good date. And I’m buying, Brandon! I’d take him somewhere classy, maybe go to Nobu and get some sushi.”
Wentz added that while the war of words was “funny” for a while, he actually has a lot of respect for Flowers. He wouldn’t want to hear this, but I think more than anything, we’re too similar to each other,” said Wentz of the Killer. “We both over-analyze everything, and we’re both totally neurotic.”
