Lead singer, Patrick Stump, of Fall Out Boy recently spoke with Billboard.com in regards to a possible new album. Infinity On High is nearly 9 months old and is already platinum, but Patrick said they have “an album worth of material”, but don’t expect a fifth album any time too soon. Stump continued to say “I don’t really feel like we’re done with this one yet, I feel like it’s still in its cycle. There’s a lot of songs on it I’m really proud of. I don’t think we have one really monster hit on this record like “Sugar,” but there are a lot of really strong individual songs. If a song is effective enough it’ll work as a single, and I think we have a lot of effective songs that aren’t necessarily monsters.”

In regards to the new material, Stump says the music is taking them in “some very different directions. There’s lots of really bizarre ideas on there, everything from folk to … actually, I was experimenting with piano phases, like Steve Reich, the composer. There’ll be some weird stuff, but at the end of the day, it’s probably just gonna be a pop record.” Even though they have new material, he also stated “There’s always something that hits me, like a sense of urgency — NOW is the time for an album — and we’re not there yet, I just get this kind of wanderlust of some kind to go back into a studio. It’s always a very defined point.”

Fall Out Boy has recently started touring with Cute Is What We Aim For, Plain White T’s and Gym Class Heroes on the Young Wild Things tour. Patrick Stump has kept busy lately, helping produce Cobra Starship‘s new album as well as working with Gym Class Heroes on their upcoming album. Outside of music he also recently filmed an episode of Law & Order, due to air in February 2008.

After multiple recommendations to listen to this band, I was instantly hooked. If their debut album This Could Be A Possibility didn’t give you the perfect summer feeling I don’t know what does. If you’re looking for a new CD to pop in your car this summer, Valencia has your back. Some of my favorites include Space Between, 3000 Miles, Away We Go. We spring here, it’s only days away from the summer sun.
