Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz - have you seen his wee willy winkle? - has spoken to MTV News via e-mail about his band's new album, the follow-up to whatever their last long-player was called. Something about a cork tree? Really, what do I care...
The man, he typed:
"I hate hearing bands talk about their new records before I hear them. Inevitably all bands trash their old songs, which we love, and insist they have come up with an entirely new formula. Then you hear the record and it sounds basically, for all intents and purposes, exactly like the band has always sounded. We're not the kind of band that is just gonna throw you in a cold pool with all of your clothes on just to get the party started — at least we wouldn't in this particular metaphor."
WHAT? I guess he's saying that he still likes Fall Out Boy's old songs, and that the new ones won't get you wet. Or something. Wentz previously said, though, that fans shouldn't hold their breath for a new album. Mixed messages? How about you mix me a drink, boy.
The man, he added:
"It never really feels like the homestretch, but I think we should be finished tracking this week. Or maybe we will do one more song, we'll see. I think the date the label wants the record is Halloween. We're gonna deliver it dressed in costumes. Or maybe not."
But that IS this year! Gosh, I'm going for a lie down, with a pretty lady. Know any? Where's that drink...
