As Fall Out Boy fans enter the band’s site looking for information on their upcoming album, Infinity on High (out Feb. 6), they’ll be greeted instead with a cheeky video clip of bassist Pete Wentz chatting on the phone with Rob Stevenson, the VP of A&R at Island Def Jam who signed the band before they blew up with 2005’s From Under the Cork Tree.
Wentz: “Put on your glasses. I have a fucking vision.”
Stevenson: “My glasses are on, and honestly, what I’m seeing is a trainwreck.”
“This whole pop-punk thing is just kind of over, you know, it’s stale,” Pete continues. “We’re watching this R&B stuff. You know they sell records…Listen Rob. Two words. No, three words: Ba-by Face.” When their conversation ends, Fall Out Boy’s new image is unveiled, something that will definitely leave fans asking, “Tell me why-yee?”
