Fall Out Boy vow 5SOS collab will happen eventually

Fall Out Boy have vowed they’ll overcome the scheduling issues that have prevented a collaboration with 5 Seconds Of Summer.

Both bands appeared at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich last week, where the topic of working together in the studio was raised again.

FOB frontman Patrick Stump tells SugarScape: “What’s crazy is we keep trying to have it happen and it doesn’t happen. It’s one of those things.”

Guitarist Joe Trohman adds: “It’s timings and stuff – it’ll happen eventually.”

Fall Out Boy released their sixth album American Beauty/American Psycho via Virgin EMI earlier this year and have lined up a seven-date UK arena tour for this October.

5SOS last year insisted they were benefitting the world of rock music by bringing pop fans into the fold. They kick off a UK tour tonight:
