FALL OUT BOY RELEASES FIFTH NEW SONG FROM UPCOMING ALBUM

January 6, 2015

Fall Out Boy keeps issuing tracks from its sixth studio set, American Beauty/American Psycho, just two weeks ahead of the record’s January 20th arrival.

The latest song to emerge is called “Irresistible” and was apparently inspired by the doomed romance between late Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, with frontman Patrick Stump wailing, “I love the way you hurt me.”

Bassist Pete Wentz wrote at the band’s website, “When I think of ‘Irresistible,’ it brings this image to my head, whether it’s fictional or real, of Sid and Nancy in an alley, garbage raining down on them in an eternal spiral of romance and poison. Sometimes (it’s) hard not to love what can hurt us the most.”

“Irresistible” is the fifth track shared from American Beauty/American Psycho, following “Immortals,” “Centuries,” “The Kids Aren’t Alright” and the title song.

  • Fall Out Boy reunited in 2013 after a four-year hiatus to record Save Rock And Roll, which topped the Billboard album chart upon its release.
  • The group recorded the new album in just three weeks.
  • Fall Out Boy will hit Australia in late February for a festival tour and has yet to announce North American live dates behind the new album.
