Fall Out Boy get back to business with their energetic new track “Love, Sex, Death,” off their upcoming album Pax Am Days. The raw video shows the rockers at their most punk, their stripped-down instrumentation and curt lyrics adding up to an Eighties-style screed that reflects the overall tone of the record.
“These are cave paintings, scrawled to just let the world know we were here. This video is made up of footage we shot ourselves on our worldwide tour in the summer of 2013,” bassist Pete Wentz tells Rolling Stone.
For the new record, Fall Out Boy spent just two days recording at Ryan Adams’ Pax Am Studio in Los Angeles. Says Adams, “[Guitarist] Joe [Trohman]’s hair was super huge both days and Patrick [Stump] sang his vocals in the front yard of the studio facing the 7-11 on Sunset Boulevard.”
Pax Am Days will be available digitally and on a limited-edition Save Rock & Roll duo disc reissue on October 15th, and is available for pre-order on iTunes. The band will play a show at Chicago’s Metro on November 29th that will benefit the Grammy Foundation, then launch a European tour that includes a stop at London’s Wembley Arena in March. They also have a new 11-part video series, Save Rock & Roll: The Youngblood Chronicles, that features music videos for each song on the record.
