Pete Wentz Says Fall Out Boy's Save Rock And Roll Is The Best Album They've Ever Made
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.05.2013



Billboard reports that Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz said their upcoming album, Save Rock and Roll is the best album they've ever made. The new album will be out on May 7.

The band have returned to music after a hiatus of over three years after rumors of a reunion in the past six months. They announced a new album, single and tour. They then played their first show back to a small group of fans at the Subterranean club in Chicago.

Wentz wrote on his website: "The music had to be right first. About nine or 10 months ago Patrick and I wrote a few songs -- they didn't feel right, so we kept our heads down and went about other projects. [After meeting up again] we felt like we had written a few of the most compelling and heartfelt songs Fall Out Boy has ever written."

Their last album, Folie a Deux, debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 in late 2008. It sold 449,000 copies. The band has sold 5.7 million albums since its first album, 2003's Take This To Your Grave. Fall Out Boy has had three Hot 100 top ten singles, the highest being 2007's "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race." That song debuted and peaked at #2.

Wentz said the album is "the best album we've ever made. It doesn't sound like the other Fall Out Boy albums, but it sounds exactly like Fall Out Boy in 2013."

Wentz, Patrick Stump, guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley announced their hiatus in November 2009 after finishing a tour with Blink 182 and a greatest hits album called Believers Never Die.

Wentz said: "I think we all needed a break. We toured non-stop for seven years all over the world. There was no real plan with it. We needed to figure ourselves out in being creative and our personal lives. We never thought it would end up being as big of a deal as it was. One of the problems with rock lately is that people take things too seriously. Fall Out Boy has always played with irony and tried to take the piss out of ourselves as much as anyone else."

The album's title, not meant to be taken literally, is "a personal statement for the band as much as anything else. Because at the end of the day, rock and roll saved us."
