Fall Out Boy have shared three new songs in the form of new EP ‘Llamania’.
Comprised of previously unheard demos/singles from the scrapped album that came before ‘MANIA’, the songs featured are ‘Wrong Side Of Paradise,’ ‘Past Life’ and ‘Footprints in the Snow’.
Some fans received a CD version of the EP in the mail. When one fan asked bassist Pete Wentz about it, he replied: “When we pushed the record back- we felt like we wanted to thank everybody for being patient. So these are three demos we scrapped that will never be finished…”

Last month, Pete Wentz broadcast a live fan Q&A from his bubble bath after a fan reminded him of a promise he made back in 2011.
In 2011, when Fall Out Boy were in the middle of what ended up being a five year hiatus (before returning with ‘Save Rock and Roll’), the bass player tweeted: ‘If I ever hit 3 million [Twitter] followers I’m gonna livestream a bubble bath and answer questions. So weird.’

Then in 2015 (the year they released their album ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’), Wentz exceeded three million followers, and one fan wasn’t about to let him forget his promise.
Twitter user @HESITANTNACHO tweeted the musician, saying: ‘Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III you have 3.3 million followers. Do. It.’
Over two years later, Wentz fulfilled his promise, livestreaming a 32 minute fan Q&A from his tub, via Periscope, surrounded by a plethora of tealights, while listening to Fall Out Boy’s recently released ‘Mania‘ LP.
