Fall Out Boy say their new album is ‘modern rock of the future’

'American Beauty/ American Psycho' was released earlier this month

Fall Out Boy have revealed that their idea for making new album ‘American Beauty/ American Psycho’ was that the record had to sound like “a throwback from the future.”

The band released their latest album earlier this month, landing a high new entry on the Official UK Album Chart. It was also revealed that they tried, and failed, to write songs with One Direction.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about their own music, bass player and songwriter Pete Wentz said: “One of the biggest ideas behind Fall Out Boy is inclusiveness,” said Pete Wentz. “If you’re not included somewhere else, come be in our club because we’re like the Island of Misfit Toys that just didn’t fit in anywhere else.”

A tweet sent by journalist Brian Hiatt also sparked inspiration. “He said that modern rock music isn’t modern. That was a big inspiration for when we were talking with this French DJ sebastiAn about creating something that was like a throwback, but from the future. It’s like modern rock of the future. I’m not sure that’s even what it is, but it is something strange.”

The band, who recently covered ‘Uptown Funk’, will be in the UK for a run arena dates later this year. Starting in Leeds at the First Direct Arena on October 3, Fall Out Boy will then visit Aberdeen, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester and Bournemouth.

A new London date has now been added to the schedule with the band playing the SSE Wembley Arena on October 12. Tickets for the date on October 11 sold out immediately when they went on sale yesterday. Scroll down for further details.
