Fall Out Boy Says There Will Be Guest Collaborations On New Album

February 18, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with Billboard before their NBA All-Star Saturday Night performance, Fall Out Boy revealed that there will be guest appearances on their new album Save Rock and Roll. Here are highlights of the interview:

Patrick Stump on guest collaborations : “There are going to be a couple of guests. I think we’re going to keep mum about it for now.”

Pete Wentz on why they can’t name the guests yet: “Those are the last things that we’re working out. I don’t think all of the contracts have been signed yet. But I will say that if people are excited about the 2 Chainz idea, there’s more exciting stuff.”

Stump on the name of their album: “The first time I heard the title, I laughed because it was tongue-in-cheek. Then I thought about it some more and there’s something real in it because I think rock and roll, when it becomes a traditionalist medium, loses itself. We forget that the Rolling Stones were paying attention to blues. Gun N’ Roses were wearing N.W.A. hats. The reality is that rock and roll isn’t on the radio as much and there’s tons of dudes making rock and roll. That says something.”

The album will be released on April 16, followed by a tour in May that will end in June.
