Pete Wentz and co have 'an album's worth of material' ready
Fall Out Boy are already planning their new album.
According to frontman Patrick Stump, the band have enough new tracks for their fifth album, the follow-up to this year’s ‘Infinity On High’.
He told Billboard that the “album’s worth of material” sounds “bizarre” and that the tracks are going in “some very different directions”.
“There’s lots of really bizarre ideas on there, everything from folk to… actually, I was experimenting with piano phases like Steve Reich, the composer,” he explained. “There’ll be some weird stuff but, at the end of the day, it’s probably just gonna be a pop record.”
Stump added that the band are not ready to release any new material in the near future.
“There’s always something that hits me, like a sense of urgency – NOW is the time for an album – and we’re not there yet,” explained the singer. “I just get this kind of wanderlust of some kind to go back into a studio. It’s always a very defined point.”
Stump added that Fall Out Boy were not ready to lay the ghost of ’Infinity On High’ to rest.
“I don’t really fell like we’re done with this one yet,” he said. “I feel like it’s still in its cycle. There’s a lot of songs on it I’m really proud of. I don’t think we have one really monster hit on this record like ‘Sugar'[/b[ [‘…We’re Going Down’] but there are a lot of really individual songs. If a song is effective enough it’ll work as a single and I think we have a lot of effective songs that aren’t necessarily monsters.”
