Fall Out Boy enter the studio with Ryan Adams

The band have recorded a number of tracks with the singer-songwriter at the helm

Fall Out Boy have recorded “eight or nine” songs with Ryan Adams.

The band worked with the singer-songwriter over two nights at Adams’ Pax-Am studios in Los Angeles, with Adams producing the sessions. Speaking to Rolling Stone about the sessions, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz said: “It was punk rock – the stuff that makes you want to kick the shit out of your bedroom at your parents’ house. It’s impossible to deny the spirit of what was happening there.”

He added that the sessions were “wild”. He explained: “It was like hanging out with your older brother that got you into punk rock. Except he gets all the jokes and he’s not like, ‘Here’s these shitty kids’ or whatever. So that was cool.”

Wentz went on to say that one of the tracks could possibly be called ‘Keeping Up Disappearances’. “I don’t know if it’s a thought or a title or what,” he commented. “It was cool because it took you back to when we started the band. There were ideas, yelling, laughing and a lot of jokes, just for the heck of it. It was really good for the spirit of Fall Out Boy. We just haven’t ever done that.”

Fall Out Boy released their most recent LP ‘Save Rock & Roll’ in April. Upon its release, frontman Patrick Stump told the Daily Star: “People will be mad about our album title, but it’s so sad when bands play it safe. When rock’n’roll becomes predictable – a certain look or sound – it’s the least rock’n’roll thing I can think of. It’s like there’s a prescription available for how you should rock, and we’re here to save the idea of rock’n’roll.”
