I’ve had a million questions come my way the last 30 hours, these are the ones asked the most:
Q - what does save rock and roll mean?
A - Rock and Roll is an intangible- its an attitude- something that you feel. Fun, Danger, whatever you want to call it. When we started this band- it wasn’t for anything but ourselves- we wanted adventure, play loud music, and do it with our best friends. fast forward to 2013. we wrote some songs we felt we needed to. we feel like were back there at the beginning with only adventure and loud music again. We just want to feel real again. Save Rock and Roll is a personal statement for the band as much as anything else- because at the end of the day rock and roll saved us.
Q - Does rock and roll need saving/do you plan on saving it?
A - it’s not to be taken literally. 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.
Q - Why come back now?
A - The music had to be right first, its all about the music. There was no other part driving this. About 9 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. when we got together more recently we felt like we had written a few of the most compelling and heartfelt songs fall out boy has ever written. besides december 21 came and passed and we decided since the world didn’t end- why not put out some tunes.
Q - Why the hiatus?
A - I think we all needed a break. We toured non stop for 7 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.
Q - What can fans expect of the new album?
A - Its the best album we’ve ever made. It doesn’t sound like the other FOB albums, but it sounds exactly like fall out boy in 2013.
