Fall Out Boy recently recorded “eight or nine” songs with Ryan Adams. The band worked with the singer-songwriter over two nights at Adams’ Pax-Am studios in Los Angeles this summer, with Adams producing the sessions. Speaking to Rolling Stone about the sessions, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz said: “It was punk rock – the stuff that makes you want to kick the shit out of your bedroom at your parents’ house. It’s impossible to deny the spirit of what was happening there.”
He added that the sessions were “wild”. He explained: “It was like hanging out with your older brother that got you into punk rock. Except he gets all the jokes and he’s not like, ‘Here’s these shitty kids’ or whatever. So that was cool.”
Fall Out Boy released their most recent LP ‘Save Rock & Roll’ in April. Upon its release, frontman Patrick Stump told the Daily Star: “People will be mad about our album title, but it’s so sad when bands play it safe. When rock’n’roll becomes predictable – a certain look or sound – it’s the least rock’n’roll thing I can think of. It’s like there’s a prescription available for how you should rock, and we’re here to save the idea of rock’n’roll.”
