Fall Out Boy Folie A Deux Delayed!

Just letting everyone know that I just read over at Punknews.org that Fall Out Boy has officially delayed their new album from 11/4 to 12/16.

The band had this to say about the delay:

“Six months ago we thought it would be a fun idea to release our album on election day but this is not the election to be cute. This is the most important election of our time and, as much as the record is a social commentary and the term “folie a deux” is relevant to the candidates, we felt as though rather than making a commentary we were only riding the wave of the election. This seemed less and less like what we intended to do and more of a gimmick. 

While we have all individually expressed our positions on the candidates that we support we feel that many of the interviews and press for the record have skewed us into a partisan band. While it may be obvious where we stand. We never intended to be the band that shoved our ideas down peoples throats. We only hope people look at the bigger picture and investigate the issues further on their own.”

If you pre-ordered already, this changes nothing other than your wait time.
