It sounds to me like with each release the music started meaning less and less to them. But isn't their last album one of their fans' favorites?

Also, I really respect this band. I like their music, sure. But I really admire them for they handled all this and I think it's something other bands can (and will) look up to.

No. If I remember correctly, it was their least well-received album. I think it's great, but at the time, people didn't.

Highlights:

01) Band needed space and didn't wanna come back until they were stoaked on it.
02) The entire time during the hiatus Pete and Patrick were talking and had some song ideas, even when Patrick was touring on his solo album.
03) Tried writings songs once, didn't feel right. Then more recently Patrick wanted to try again, Pete was worried .. but then the music spoke right and it all came together.
04) Even on day 2 of "hiatus" Pete was sending lyrics to Pat and he was sending back song ideas.
05) It was about a year ago that they were excited about what they were working on again.
06) Wanted to make sure it was the right reasons before doing it again ... it had to be about enjoying the music and being around each other.
07) The sideprojects have a "ton" of influence, but in a different way --- that because they got a lot of the "fat" out during the sideprojects what they are left with is pure Fall Out Boy.
08) Joe hadn't written a lot of music for FOB in the past, but on this record he did more. He needed to go away to remove the pressures.
09) Pete's boy was in the inspiration for some lyrics on the new album.
10) Pete felt like he needed to 'grow up' a little before getting back together.
11) Album is varied. Sounds more like the new single than anything else though - sonically. Dirty and more filtered and reverb.
12) Working with Butch was great and really helped them step outside of themselves creatively.
13) Zero dubstep.
14) Hard to describe the album - can't really put it to words in how it sounds and it's "something of its own" -- which they credit Joe's writing and Butch ... and Andy is singing back-ups (quite a bit) on the record.
15) Patrick says its some of his favorite lyrics Pete's ever written.
16) They could have released "Sugar" 10 times but didn't wanna play it safe as a band.
17) The burning was definitely alluding to being reborn.
18) Andy never talks. (Observation)
19) They recorded in Los Angeles. But some pieces were recorded by Patrick in Chicago, himself, and used on the album.
20) Coming back to Chicago was really important to them to do all the reunion stuff.
Thank you for posting this....

i was wondering... is there even a genre label that fits them? every record sounds so different from each other and SR&R is bulding up to be the most different yet. it also just doesn't feel right to call FAD either a pop punk or a pop rock record.

It's cool they got back together since so many people love them. But I still don't get why they're so popular. Lots of better pop punk bands in the scene imo.

They started officially recording just a couple months ago.
I just thought it was kind of funny how hard you were diving the point that you had insider knowledge of the situation yesterday, which I'm sure you do, and you are probably just really excited about the news just like everyone else.

Also the bullet points are awesome, makes it really easy to see what the interview was about without having to sit down and listen to it. Thanks

In relation to #16....I don't want more "Sugar" clones. I actually got pretty sick of Americas Suitehearts because it was so similar. I love that they keep things varied

Had a laugh at #7 on Jason's list. We all know that Patrick definitely got his fat out during his side project, if ya know what I mean.

Nah, my main point is that they haven't been recording for a year or whatever was said before ... and that was one of the reasons they waited to announce anything, they wanted to make sure the songs were what they believed in first.
