Earlier this month Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump announced via the band’s instagram .
“We are pushing the record release date back to January 19th,” Patrick Stump states. “I didn’t mention that. Yeah… pretty big bummer. We had some long talks and a lot to weigh about it all and collectively thought that was best.”
The album was supposed to drop on September 15th will now be released in the beginning of 2018. The band will still be touring this fall on the MANIA tour, you can check out the dates here. The band is currently supporting their singles “Champion” and “Young & Menace”. Fall Out Boy is also nominated for an MTV VMA this year for “Young & Menace”. Check out the video below.
“I know we’re supposed to come up with some really exciting story to spin in pull-quotes about how the studio exploded and I ran in to save Pete’s bass or something. Or like aliens stole the master tapes,” Patrick said in his Twitter post. “That would be fun for sure but the truth is, we just want the record to be better than we can make it in the next couple weeks and it will require a little more time.”
