Fall Out Boy confirm 6th album

Fall Out Boy have confirmed the launch of sixth album American Beauty/American Psycho on January 19 via Island Records.

Last night they revealed the title track on radio, set to come out as a single on December 8. It follows September’s hit Centuries.

Bassist Pete Wentz has described the album’s sound as “David versus Goliath,” explaining that contemporary elements would be mixed with a more traditional approach. In June he said: “We’re far more open now to doing something outside of what people would consider our genre or who we are.”

FOB’s last record, Save Rock And Roll, arrived in 2013 after the band ended a hiatus the previous year. Wentz recently admitted he wasn’t certain whether to return, saying: “I thought, ‘I’m happy now and I don’t know whether adding Fall Out Boy back into the mix will mess with that.’ So there was a bit of trepidation.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
