Since the band’s hiatus announcement in November of 2009, the guys¬†of Fall Out Boy have now moved on to other projects.¬† Andy Hurley (drummer) and Joe Trohman (guitarist), for example, have started a metal band called¬†The Damned Things¬†with members of Anthrax (Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano)¬†and Everytime I Die (Keith Buckley), whereas Pete Wentz (bassist/emo’s pretty boy) has rendered out into¬†the business world¬†writing comic books, opening a night club, and much more.¬† No worries, Wentz still has¬†a¬†place in music, for he just collaborated with Mark Hoppus (Blink 182)¬†in contributing a song¬†to the Alice In Wonderland soundtrack.¬†
But just last week, Fall Out Boy’s frontman Patrick Stump released a video on his newly revised website (www.patrickstump.com) that shows a little snippet of what’s to come from the Stump himself.¬† The video is a compilation of Stump playing different instruments, including keys, drums, and even a trumpet,¬†that all layer into one song, ending with¬†the caption¬†”I’m working on an album.¬† I’ll be writing, producing, performing everything myself.¬† Stay tuned.”¬†The video can be seen by click here.
This is sure to be an exciting release, hopefully combining¬†the catchy melodies we’ve¬†heard and loved from Fall¬†Out Boy¬†with this seemingly new found progression in funk and maybe soulful concoction.¬† Or honestly this can just be a new side of Stump the world has never seen.¬† We’re sure to be surprised. Stay tuned.
(RIP Fall Out Boy)
