Fall Out Boy Admit They're 'Too Pop For Rock And Too Rock For Pop'
. (TeamRock Radio) Pete Wentz says Fall Out Boy's joint tour with rapper Wiz Khalifa makes sense as both acts find themselves wedged between genres. The bass player says FOB are "too pop for rock and too rock for pop" and believes Khalifa is in a similar situation in the hip hop world.
And he reveals the band expect to write and record new music with Khalifa, which could see the light of day before the Boys Of Zummer tour begins in June. Wentz tells Canoe.ca: "It feels sometimes like Fall Out Boy is an island right now. We're too pop for rock and too rock for pop. Where do we fit into the whole thing?
"And looking at Wiz Khalifa, it kind of looks like a similar situation to him as far as hip hop and where he stands within it. He's kind of in hip hop but he's kind of in pop, and when you have a foot in both worlds it's like you have a foot in neither.
"So it just made sense for us. And we're going to do some music together that will hopefully get out before summer." Read more here.
