FALL OUT BOY - so much (for) startdust - BRAND NEW CASSETTE TAPE
GRAMMY Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling rock band Fall Out Boy announced that their eighth studio album So Much (For) Stardust will arrive March 24, 2023.“Technology has made it really easy to make records much more quickly these days. There’s nothing wrong with that, and that spontaneity can be exciting,” shares FOB’s Patrick Stump. “But we wanted to get back to the way we used to work. We wanted to make a record that was really lovingly crafted and deliberate and patiently guided – like someone cooked you a delicate meal. I’m not a very proud guy, but I’m pretty proud of this record.”So Much (For) Stardust marks a homecoming for the band on multiple fronts; the first of which found the band reuniting with renowned producer Neal Avron, whom they’ve worked with on three previous albums (From Under the Cork Tree,Infinity on High,Folie à Deux). On working with Avron for this record, Stump notes: “Neal not only taught us how to make records, but has a unique capacity to really take time and focus on a record. We thought it was a no-brainer to work with him again, on a record where that was very important to us, and he was gracious enough to agree to work with us.”Additionally, So Much (For) Stardust will bereleased on Fueled By Ramen/Elektra – Fall Out Boy’s first album with the label since their 2003 debut albumTake This to Your Grave, which celebrates its 20th anniversary on May 6. “Our band has been an ongoing art project for twenty years and we know there have been many inception points along that journey,” says FOB’s Pete Wentz. “We wanted to create an album that merged those points together – something new, but carved from our foundation. Fueled By Ramen and Elektra seemed like the perfect home for this.” “We’re incredibly excited to welcome back Fall Out Boy to the Fueled By Ramen family. It’s been twenty years since the release of their debut album on Fueled By Ramen, and it’s a true pleasure to be working together again.
