3 min read

Fall Out Boy signed to Fueled by Ramen/ Elektra Records and announced his first studio album in four years titled “So Much (for) Stardust” coming March 24th.

The announcement comes in conjunction with the release of the single “Love From The Other Side,” which Fall Out Boy performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday night. The band also released a music video for the song directed by David Brown and Open the Portal.

“Technology has made it really easy to record faster these days. There’s nothing wrong with that, and that spontaneity can be exciting,” vocalist and rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump said in a statement. “But we wanted to go back to the way we used to work. We wanted to make a record that was really made with love and managed with intentionality and patience – like someone cooking you a delicious meal. I’m not a very proud person, but I’m pretty proud of this record.”

The announcement marks a homecoming of sorts for the band, who released their debut album in 2003 with Fueled by Ramen, which has been distributed by Elektra since 2018.

“So Much (for) Stardust” also saw the band reunite with producer Neil Avron, with whom they collaborated on the albums “From Under the Cork Tree,” “Infinity on High” and “Folly a Deux.”

“Our band has been an ongoing art project for 20 years and we know there are many starting points on that journey,” says bassist Pete Wentz. “We wanted to make an album that brought those points together—something new, but carved from our foundation. Fueled by Ramen and Elektra seemed like the perfect home for it.”

Johnny Minardi, VP of A&R for Fueled by Ramen/ Elektra, added: “We are incredibly excited to welcome Fall Out Boy into the Fueled By Ramen family. It’s been twenty years since the release of their debut album Fueled by Ramen, and it’s a real pleasure to be working together again. Growing up in Chicago, I had the privilege of seeing Fall Out Boy play at DIY venues around the city, eventually becoming the global superstars we know them as today. They are a truly special band that changed the landscape of rock music and who continue to evolve with each new release. They’ve made an incredible album and we can’t wait for the world to hear it.”

The veteran pop-punk band has been teasing a new era of late, placing a cryptic ad in the Chicago Tribune in November and setting up a series of teaser websites for fans before officially announcing “Love from the Other Side” last week. During a performance at iHeartRadio’s Alter Ego Fest on Saturday night, Wentz also hinted at a possible tour, telling the crowd that he “can’t wait to spend the next year with you.”

Fall Out Boy was signed to Island Records for most of its career, releasing music through the imprint DCD2, founded in 2005 by members Wentz and Stump. After the band went on hiatus from 2009 to 2013, they signed a new three-album deal with Island, which was completed in 2018 with the band’s most recent studio album, “Mania”.

Comprised of vocalist Stump, bassist Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley, Fall Out Boy formed in 2001 and debuted with 2003’s “Take This to Your Grave.” The band has had an indelible impact on rock music in the 21st century, becoming one of the most popular pop-punk bands of all time and helping to take the genre into the mainstream. Fall Out Boy has released seven studio albums to date, with their most recent effort, “Mania”, receiving a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. In 2006, the band was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Artist category. Most recently, Fall Out Boy joined fellow rock legends Weezer and Green Day on the Hella Mega Tour in 2021.
