Boy Meets World

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz pointedly avoids speaking in cliches when talking up his band’s forthcoming, yet-to-be-titled disc. “When a band puts out another record, they always say, ‘It’s gonna be like the most heavierest thing ever! All the heavy parts are going to be heavier, and the melodic parts will be more melodic. It’s going to be so much smarter,'” he says mockingly. “The only thing I can say is, like, we don’t want the next batch of 14- and 15-year-olds. We wanna take our fans along with us. We’ve grown up. Last year we were on the road for, like, 290 days, and that just changes your mind-set and how you view the world. At the same time, what we’re doing is writing a record for the people who haven’t had a chance to hear Fall Out Boy. So, it’ll be our introduction to many people.” The full story at clevescene.com has since been removed.
