The band recorded a stripped-back radio session ahead of their huge slot at Reading & Leeds next month
Pete Wentz and co. released their latest album, ‘Mania‘, back in January this year. Next month, they will return to the UK to headline Reading & Leeds festivals alongside Panic! At The Disco, Kendrick Lamar and Kings Of Leon.
Ahead of the huge show, the band stopped off at Sirius XM to record a special acoustic session and interview. Tunes performed during the broadcast included ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’, ‘Centuries’, ‘Uma Thurman’, and ‘The Last Of The Real Ones’.
Frontman Patrick Stump also surprised listeners with a stripped-back take on one of this year’s biggest hits – ‘No Tears Left To Cry’.
Grande released the infectious tune in April. It marked her first new material since the Manchester Arena terror attacks. NME described the track as “a triumph”, with the singer “tackling hate and devastation with hope and disco”.
Meanwhile, it was announced earlier this month that Fall Out Boy’s singer Stump will compose the score for a new movie adaptation of Alice In Wonderland. The musician has previously provided music for Gnome Alone, Changeland, and Lego Batman.
Back in April, Pete Wentz spoke to NME about their upcoming Reading & Leeds appearance. Discussing how the band have progressed up the bill throughout their career, he said: “It’s just been a cool, real build for us over the years. It just means so much more, because we’ve done some of the other slots – we’re pretty psyched.”
