Fall Out Boy announced today the release of their sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho, which comes out January 20 via Island/DCD2 Records. It will follow the band’s gold-certified fifth album Save Rock And Roll. Preorder packages go on sale December 15.
Along with the announcement, the band premiered the album’s title track today on BBC Radio 1. (The song should be available online soon.) FOB wrote about the album:
“The moment where a shadow lets you know where the sun was streaming in. the odd place where light and dark meet. there is a threshold. we all can feel it- it is something palpable… the idea that no matter how much an animal is domesticated- there is still something wild in it. declawed but we take/make the best monsters. we semi-civilize them. we put bears in suits on tricycles. we keep wolves warm from the winter in hen houses. then we wonder why they maul the hearts of what we hold the most dear. but make no mistake you brought them into your house and thought they could become a pet. we have infiltrated you. now we are inside you like a disease. this is a modern love story- coming together and unravelling all at once…. “
Prior to the album announcement, Fall Out Boy released a stand-alone single, “Centuries,” a song for Disney's Big Hero 6, “Immortals” and remixed the Chicago Bulls theme song with Lupe Fiasco. Busy dudes.
