"This album is one that is particularly close to us. We recorded it in secret from the music industry, critics, and even our fans. An artist's first record sounds the way it does because it is often made without expectations. This is not our first record. But because of the way we went about making this one in the shadows it is with out a doubt the first record in a new chapter of Fall Out Boy. We made this music for ourselves and no one else at the end of the day. This is meant be played loud, with the windows down on summer nights. Four friends with our backs to each other fighting in the darkness against anything and everything that is out there. We bowed our heads, took a knee and plugged back in. From the first strings to the last shouts- this is us. These incantations are meant to conjure realness, to unlock whatever the rock and roll is inside each of you - in each of us. Put on your headphones, turn it up - this is what we have spent the last year and a half making. Most importantly, thank you for wishing or waiting - because with out you, the most important piece, this record would never have been made. So we figured you have waited long enough ... with out further ado, please listen closely,"
stated the stated in an official announcement.
The first three singles, "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dard (Light Em Up)," "The Phoenix"
and "Young Volcanoes"
were mostly met with praises from the fans. Whether or not will the entire record be equally successful yet remains to be seen. You can check out the full stream below.
