January 20, 2015 was the date the new album by Fall Out Boy was released in the United States. American Beauty/American Psycho is the sixth studio album of the band as the follow-up to the band’s comeback album Save Rock and Roll (2013).
The “American Beauty” half of the album’s title comes from the album by the Grateful Dead and the 1999 film American Beauty. The “American Psycho” half references the book by Bret Easton Ellis and the subsequent 2000 film.
Back in on September 8, 2014, the album’s lead single “Centuries” was released and peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, No. 17 on Mainstream Top 40 and No. 4 on Alternative Songs. Other songs of the album were released later on, like “Immortals” that is featured in the 2014 Walt Disney Animation Studios film Big Hero 6, while “The Kids Aren’t Alright”, “Irresistible” and “Uma Thurman” were released in ITunes.
American Beauty/American Psycho received mostly positive reviews upon its release on January 16, 2015 through Island Records. The new eleven-song collection was produced by a number of well-known recorders, including Jake Sinclair, J.R. Rotem, Omega, SebastiAn, Butch Walker, and the band themselves. Fall Out Boy is a joy to listen to and this album is a living proof!
On Friday night, gathered in a New York City’s Lower East Side local bar called The Late Late, Fall Out Boy’s members Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Andy Hurley, and Joe Trohman were present and Patrick Stump stated:
“Our legacy’s important to us, but we want to show people that you can play rock and roll in stadiums and amphitheaters and you can play music on those same stages that’s currently being played on the radio. And that’s a pretty f-cking hard thing to do. Thank you to everyone here who was involved in making that happen. This is a really important record.”
