Fans will certainly be disheartened to know that there is NO possibility of any earlier said “collaboration” between Fall Out Boys (FOB) and 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS).
Pete Wentz, the bassist of American rock band FOB, said to MTV News that their “intentions were taken out of context.” He had given his statement when MTV News caught up the FOB chaps on the Boys of Zummer tour.
“I feel like it went from hanging out and writing, or just hanging out and whatever, and then people were like, ‘there’s this collaboration,’” Wentz said.
“It was, like, real crazy because I think they are nice kids and stuff, but I feel like they have their own path,” Wentz added.
However, this is not the total end of any sort of collaboration or teamwork between FOB and 5SOS. FOB’s vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump showed a ray of hope saying that FOB team members have another business venture in mind for Australian pop band 5SOS, or atleast the band’s nickname.
“It took me a second by the way because I was not familiar with that abbreviation. I was like, I have never tasted this 5SOS,” Patrick mocked when asked about FOB’s collaboration with 5SOS.
In the mid of May this year, FOB and 5SOS had played the main stage at BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in Norwich. After a week of that performance, FOB guys had expressed their interests to work on new music and hit the studio with the 5SOS boys.
FOB, formed in 2001 in Chicago, first had its groundbreaking success with its album “Take this to Your Grave” released in 2003. This album had bestowed FOB with a dedicated fan-base, heavy tours across the globe and some moderate commercial success. FOB’s other super hit discographies are “From Under the Cork Tree” (2005), “Infinity on High” (2007), “Folie à Deux” (2008), “Save Rock and Roll” (2013) and “American Beauty/American Psycho” (2015).
