Fall Out Boy has confirmed recording a batch of new material after bassist Pete Wentzposted a photo last week on Instagram of the group in a studio owned by singer/songwriter Ryan Adams. Wentz told Rolling Stone that the band did record "eight or nine" songs under Adams' supervision over two nights, explaining, "It was punk rock -- the stuff that makes you want to kick the s*** out of your bedroom at your parents' house. It's impossible to deny the spirit of what was happening there."
Wentz added, "It was set up like how we used to practice in Joe (Trohman, drummer)'s parents' attic -- in the corner of the room. We played loud and Patrick (Stump) was singing live vocals, so it was very raw."
Wentz did not say when or if the tracks might surface, but remarked, "It was cool because it took you back to when we started the band . . . It was really good for the spirit of Fall Out Boy. We just haven't ever done that."
Stump told us that he hopes Fall Out Boy makes a variety of music throughout the course of their career:"You know, 20 years from now, we want to be able to look back at hopefully lots and lots of albums that we've put out and, you know, hear lots of different, exciting things, rather than still be looking to our first album for, you know, a kind of blueprint for everything we're gonna do."
Fall Out Boy issued its fifth studio album, Save Rock And Roll, in April after a hiatus of more than four years during which many assumed the band was over.
The disc debuted at Number One on the Billboard album chart, selling 154,000 copies in its first week of release.
Fall Out Boy will begin a North American arena tour on September 5th in Uncasville, Connecticut, withPanic! At The Disco and Twenty One Pilots along as support.
