Fall Out Boy get album hints from Oasis

Pete Wentz promises 'distorted, awesome riffs' for new record

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has been speaking to MTV News about the lessons they have picked up from Oasis in preparation for their upcoming album.

And the band have explained exactly what they have gleaned from Noel Gallagher‘s ditties.

“I think the one aspect we’re bringing to the record is something Oasis did a lot, where they play these really distorted, awesome riffs, and they’d have an acoustic guitar over the entire song,” Wentz confirmed.

“It kind of brings this great sense of melody and softness to a song that would otherwise just totally be a rock song. And I want to go in a completely different direction with the lyrics, but we’ll see if that happens.”
