Tuna on Toast w Pete Wentz Fall Out Boy
Ted Stryker welcomes the incredibly talented Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy to Tuna on Toast!
Fall Out Boy release their new album "So Much (for) Stardust on March 24th, 2023. As we sit here today (March 2), the band has the number one song in the country with "Love From the Other Side". Their very first number 1!! The guys discuss what was the inspiration for the song...Pete also explains why not going back to the well of what Fall Out Boy created 15-20 years ago was so important when making the new album. He did not want a retread.
Pete talks about all the rejection letters FOB received from record labels all those years ago before the release of "Take This to Your Grave". Pete recalls a show in Wisconsin when his current manager Bob McLynn was at that show and saw that rawness and spark!
Pete tells the story of how he (Pete) signed Panic! At the Disco and the messages he received from Ryan Ross and Brendon Urie.
Pete mentions the "magic" that Turnstile has as well has Lana Del Rey and Lorde!
Stryker and Pete talk about how Tim McIlrath from Rise Against is like his brother and that they were in many bands together growing up.
Pete shares that he really wants the young artists out there to break through.
It was such a treat to chat with Pete Wentz, he's a huge talent and a really good dude (I'll see about his golf game in person)
Make sure to find FOB on their huge world tour! Thanks for listening to another episode of Tuna on Toast!
