Michael Schneider, writing at Variety:
“Bronze Blue” would have starred Hoppus, Wentz, Ashlee Simpson, and others (potentially including Williams, who had been approached) as various characters in an underwater punk/pop band singing catchy, eco-friendly tunes. The band toured the beaches of the world to share their message; however, they would have to stay one step ahead of their ultimate villain: The Sushi Chef.
The new track from Lil Peep & ILoveMakonnen featuring Fall Out Boy, “I’ve Been Waiting,” has been released.
ILoveMakonnen talked about how the song came together over at AltPress:
“We were talking about all of the artists that influenced us and who would be our dream artists to work with,” ILoveMakonnen explains. “He mentioned Fall Out Boy, and after Lil Peep passed, Pete Wentz reached out to me and sent his condolences.”
A new collaboration between Lil Peep, Fall Out Boy, and iLoveMakonnen is coming later today.
Post Malone has released the new song “Wow.” It contains a Fall Out Boy mention.
Alex Robert Ross, writing for Noisey, about the band’s holiday song “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out:”
Wentz says that they didn’t overthink the lyrics, that it was “mostly just a goofy song that we took and burned on a cd and gift wrapped in holiday paper and gave out to kids at the show.” […] “Maybe that was a bit overdramatic,” he says now. “I don’t think it was awful. I think monotonous would be a better word. I think when you are a punk rock kid in the suburbs, the holidays represent the biggest version of the monoculture. How could you not take a shot at it?”
All Time Low performed covers of Blink-182 and Fall Out Boy at a small show in in Brisbane, Australia. A couple fan shot videos can be found below.
Patrick Stump talks about the score for the film, Spell, in a new video.
Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy will also be scoring the upcoming documentary series Let Science Speak. Business Insider reports:
The series features a stunning, original score by composer, and Fall Out Boy front man, Patrick Stump (Pacific Rim, Big Hero 6). “When I was a little kid, if you had asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would always say “Scientist,” without hesitation,” says Stump. “So to use my music to help tell the stories of these people who are essentially my heroes is very cool.”
Let Science Speak will inform and engage viewers about the importance of science in our ever-evolving world. Each episode features a scientist and their field.
Billboard sat own with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy:
I’ve scored a few films and some shows; I’m not an old pro but I’m comfortable as a composer now. He’s the first director — or anyone involved in production I’ve worked with — who’s also a pretty great musician. It was one of the easiest I worked on because there were just language things… He was so quick to describing what he meant. It’s one thing to describe, say, chords: “Why don’t we go to a minor here?” But it’s another thing, not just knowing the nomenclature, to also know the purpose behind stuff. “Why don’t we try something like this here?” He has a very clear idea of what he wanted and it allowed me to just play.
Fall Out Boy will stream their Las Vegas show on September 28th live on Twitter.
Pete Wentz and Andy Hurley talk with Rock Sound in a new video interview:
The one thing that I would do differently in the future is listen to the kids on that aspect- because they just drive that anyway. ‘Last Of The Real Ones’ is a single- it’s just not a single that’s on the radio. But it’s on the internet like a motherfucker. And so that part- I wouldn’t say that it was unsuccessful- it was just a learning experience for us. But I think it was a successful transition.
