The Scoop: Rock and roll saviors Fall Out Boy have announced details surrounding their sixth full-length record, which is to be titled American Beauty/American Psycho. The album is set to release on January 20th. Alongside this news, the guys premiered the title track from the record earlier today during a radio interview, with the official song release slated for December 8th and full preorders scheduled to launch December 15th.
The Spin: This record will be a direct follow-up to Fall Out Boy’s gold-certified comeback record Save Rock and Roll. You can read what the band had to say about the record and hear the title track below:
the moment where a shadow lets you know where the sun was streaming in. the odd place where light and dark meet. there is a threshold. we all can feel it- it is something palpable… the idea that no matter how much an animal is domesticated- there is still something wild in it. declawed but we take/make the best monsters. we semi-civilize them. we put bears in suits on tricycles. we keep wolves warm from the winter in hen houses. then we wonder why they maul the hearts of what we hold the most dear. but make no mistake you brought them into your house and thought they could become a pet. we have infiltrated you. now we are inside you like a disease. this is a modern love story- coming together and unravelling all at once….
“the cancer of time is eating us away. our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. the hero then, is not time, but timelessness….” henry miller
we thought about where this all began but razing it and starting again. so we reached out to a kindred spirit in sebastiAn- from the past he mined some of the future. the mission is the heart pure and simple as it can be- distilled but never fragmented or disguised. through these experiments, that were sometimes lost in translation, we persevered- “they tried to bury us but they didnt realize we were seeds”…
The song “American Beauty/American Psycho” will be released digitally worldwide Dec 8.
Our 6th studio album, also called American Beauty/American Psycho comes out January 20th Worldwide on DCD2/Island Records.
