Fall Out Boy want to reach lost young peo­ple with their new al­bum

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The US rock­ers will re­lease their sev­enth LP, 'Mania', next month and bassist Pete Wentz is hop­ing the songs will help "kids" who are look­ing to "fig­ure them­selves out" and let them be­lieve they can fit the world around them­selves. He said: "The world can be a big lonely place, es­pe­cially for kids who are try­ing to fig­ure them­selves out. I think some­times we can for­get that... that's who Mania is meant to speak to. That's who I want to reach. I don't think that kids should feel like they need to ad­just their em­pa­thy or selves to the world - I'd rather give them the be­lief that they can ad­just the world to fit their em­pa­thy." Pete also promised the EDM-in­flu­enced 'Young and Men­ace' isn't in­dica­tive of the al­bum as a whole, but the song of­fered them the chance to do a "hard restart" and do some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent. He told Rolling Stone mag­a­zine: "It feels like every once in a while, you've gotta do a hard restart that clears the cache and erases the hard drive. "I think that's what 'Young and Men­ace' was - a big pal­ette cleanse. I think it gave us the space to cre­ate some­thing brand new." Pete be­lieve it is im­por­tant for the band to con­tinue to evolve, rather than just mak­ing mu­sic that sounds like fan-pleas­ing clas­sic work. He said: "I think we have to just move for­ward - that's the goal of us (I don't mean the band; I mean hu­mans) - we just need to evolve. "No one wants to be who they were two years ago or 10 years ago... it's great to have that snap­shot, but it's time to hang up your hat when you think your glory days are be­hind you. "I think the sound of FOB will al­ways come with us be­cause of the na­ture of how Pa­trick sings against the mu­sic - it is just in­her­ently there."
