Fall Out Boy started working on new “guitar-based” material which is now “on the back burner”.

Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman has revealed that the band has recently been working on new “guitar-based” material which is now “on the back burner”.

Trohman spoke to Rolling Stone about his upcoming memoir, None Of These Rocks, which explores the guitarist’s childhood and his evolution as a musician. It is described as “unlike any other [memoria] you have read.”

In the new interview, Trohman is asked about a section in the book where he says Fall Out Boy is working on new rock-oriented material, more similar to his previous work.

In response, he revealed that this particular series of music seems to have been shelved, saying: “We’ve been working on some guitar-based stuff. I don’t know what’s going on with it. I think it’s unfortunately disappeared into the second six. It would be nice to make an album where the guitar was a bit more present.

“We started out like this, as a guitar-based rock band, and it would be great to go back to those roots. We’d have to find a way to do it that wasn’t like Fall Out Boy since 2005. It might be cool if someone did, but it wouldn’t be cool.”

Elsewhere, Trohman shared his distaste for the band’s 2018 album ‘MANIA’, saying: “There are some great ideas and interesting things in ‘MANIA’. But it didn’t work out well, and I can’t say I love it. It’s what makes me hopefully record again… with guitars, bass, drums and vocals. I love the synths, the synths we play.

“We can play music; let’s play music. Let’s not look for samples. Let’s not try to find singles. By now, we have hit so many singles. Do we really need to keep looking for singles? I think we should make a cool record.”

A synopsis of the book (via Waterstones) reads: “None Of These Rocks is a memoir by Joe Trohman – lead guitarist and co-founder of Fall Out Boy – that reads like a double album full of revealing stories from his childhood and experiences. in modern rock and roll stardom.

“With wit and wisdom, and maybe a little whining, Trohman tackles depression, his mother’s brain cancer, anti-Semitism, pills, petty theft, old fashioned and pop-punk.

“Filled with eye-opening stories from his childhood and experiences of modern rock and roll stardom”

“That’s where Fall Out Boy came in. From the guitarist’s first glimpse of his rise to fame, through working with his heroes like Scott Ian of Anthrax, to writing for television with comedian Brian Posehn, Trohman takes readers behind the scenes, to the study and to her sofa.

“He shares his struggles with depression and substance abuse in a brutally honest and personal way that readers will appreciate. This may not be much to say, but it all adds up to a stirring musical memoir along with any other.” read.”

None Of These Rocks will be on sale from 13 September and the book can be pre-ordered here.

In addition, this summer Fall Out Boy donated $100,000 (£83,000) to Everytown – a non-profit organization that advocates gun control and protests gun violence – following a mass shooting in Highland Park (Illinois) last July.
