American rock band Fall Out Boy teases a new album. The band's last album was in 2018 with their album M A N I A. Fall Out Boy teased the news in an advertisement in the Chicago Tribune with the words "FOB 8" and "If you build it, they will come". Fans theorise this is a hint at their upcoming 8th album.
Guitarist of Fall Out Boy - Joe Trohman spoke to Rolling Stone in September. Speaking about his memoir, he mentioned the music Fall Out Boy were working on â€œWe were working on some stuff that was guitar-based. I donâ€™t know know whatâ€™s happening with it. I think it unfortunately went to the back burner. It would be nice to make a record where the guitar is a little more upfront."
He adds â€œWe did start that way, as a guitar-based rock band, and itâ€™d be cool to go back to those roots. Weâ€™d have to find a way to do it that doesnâ€™t sound like Fall Out Boy from 2005. It might be cool for somebody else to do that, but it wouldnâ€™t be cool for us to do it.â€
In an interview with Kerrang! in 2019 guitarist/vocalist Patrick Stump spoke about the future of FOB's music â€œI really donâ€™t know what itâ€™s going to take, but I do know that the next record we put out, or whatever we do next, itâ€™s going to be something that we really care about. And itâ€™s something that weâ€™re going to spend a lot of time on.â€
It's been a while since their last album, I hope the band can give us a whole new album for 2023, and a tour to follow would be great too.
