Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Andy Hurley stopped by Elvis Duran and the Morning Show to celebrate the release of the band's seventh studio album, Mania, out January 19th.
Before playing their new single, "Heaven's Gate", Greg T the Frat Boy dug some old liners out of the archives where the band promised to hang out with him pantless! Andy and Pete shockingly both obliged, pulling their pants down during the live interview!
Mania is Fall Out Boy's first album since 2015's American Beauty/American Psycho, which earned them their third #1 spot on Billboard's Top 200.
"This album has some weird songs on it!" Pete Wentz told Elvis Duran and the Morning Show about the upcoming release. "We put out this song called 'Young And Menace' and I would say it's the musical equivalent of a cat chasing a laser beam... but it felt necessary."
Wentz went on to explain that he's nervous about the releasing new music! It's important to him that people like it. When Elvis Duran asked how they would prefer fans to listen to the album, they opened up about the role music plays in people's lives.
"It's meant to be consumed as an album, but we also have to make stuff because I understand that people will listen to [singular] songs on the radio or on playlists," Pete Wentz told the morning show.
He later admitted that he wants people to listen to the album twice before fully digesting Fall Out Boy's new record. It might take two times to fully 'get it.'
This album will be different because the group gave themselves more creative freedom than with previous records.
"We've taken a lot of restrictions off of what Fall Out Boy would have been in the past," Wentz told Elvis Duran. "It's something we've never done before. [Lead singer] Patrick [Stump] just released."
You can catch Fall Out Boy throughout the year on their Mania Tour, hitting up cities across the US as well as New Zealand, England, France, Germany and more.
