Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz has mentioned that he watched the Metallica documentary Some Type of Monster with the band’s vocalist Patrick Stump earlier than they began making their upcoming album, ‘So A lot (For) Stardust’.
The 2004 movie supplied an perception into the Metallica camp whereas they had been making their divisive album ‘St Anger’, a time which was notably fraught for the band amid frontman James Hetfield’s dependancy points and the departure of bassist Jason Newsted.
Wentz revealed in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 that he had seen the movie, which resonated together with his personal experiences of band life. “Earlier than we began engaged on the [new] file, I used to be watching Some Type of Monster. One way or the other in my head, I at all times thought that they had been a band for 30 or 40 years.” [via Louder]
He continued: “I don’t actually know why however I used to be like, ‘Oh, we’ve been a band the identical size that they had been a band after they shot this, which is only a actually bizarre mirror to look into.”
Stump, in the meantime, added: “As a result of what you had been saying, the factor about, ‘Do they get alongside?’ There’s so many issues that should line up for a band to make a file at this level, not to mention a very good one.”
Fall Out Boy introduced their eighth album, ‘So Much (For) Stardust’, earlier this week, after a teaser marketing campaign that noticed them take out a full page advert for ‘FOB8’ within the Chicago Tribune and ship Bring Me The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes a pink seashell. The album is about to reach on March 24 and is preceded by its lead single ‘Love From The Other Side’.
Stump instructed NME in a new interview that ‘So A lot (For) Stardust’ is “not a throwback file”. He defined: “I didn’t wish to return to a particular type, however I wished to think about what wouldn’t it have gave the impression of if we had made a file proper after ‘Folie à Deux’ [Fall Out Boy’s divisive 2009 album] as an alternative of taking a break for just a few years
“It was like exploring the multiverse. It was an experiment in seeing what we might have executed.”
