Fall Out Boy announce new album in classic Fall Out Boy fashion

FALL OUT BOY

(Pamela Littky)

It looks like the Fall Out Boy reunion that produced last year’s Save Rock and Roll has stuck. Earlier today, the band posted to their blog a chunk of cryptic text followed by a Henry Miller quote followed by some more cryptic text followed by an announcement: On Dec. 8 they’ll release a new single, “American Beauty/American Psycho,” with an album of the same name on Jan. 20. Between all the feelings-intensive poetry and a reference to the tried and true “good girl/crazy chick” dichotomy, it’s classic Fall Out Boy all the way. With the speed the retro cycle’s been churning at recently it’s not impossible that the emo revival could get around to the early aughts by the time the LP drops.
