Fall Out Boy Announce 'American Beauty/American Psycho' Album Release Date, Drop New Track

Punk rock band Fall Out Boy has announced the release date of their sixth studio album "American Beauty/American Psycho," according to Billboard.

Fans of the band can start pre-ordering the album on December 15. The worldwide release for the record will be on January 20, 2015.

In conjunction with the album details, the band also dropped a new single, which bears the same name as the studio effort. The song "American Beauty/American Psycho" will be available digitally on December 8.

The song debuted on BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe on Monday, November 24, according to MTV.

"We thought about where this all began but razing it and starting again. So we reached out to a kindred spirit in sebastiAn - from the past he minded some of the future," the band wrote on, sharing what they inspired them to write the song.

The band then spoke of the message they want to impart through the song, saying "The mission is the heart, pure and simple as it can be - distilled but never fragmented or disguised. Through these experiments, that were sometimes lost in translation, we persevered - 'They tried to bury us but they didn't realize we were seeds.'"

In September, Fall Out Boy released "Centuries" to tease the upcoming album, according to Rolling Stone.

The song is akin to the story of David and Goliath, the band's bassist Pete Wentz told DIY magazine. 

"When we were growing up, it was like, 'We'll never be U2 because we're from the suburbs of Chicago and nothing happens here,'" Wentz said. "But the idea now is to inspire that kid - you can be the person up onstage and it's only the power of your belief that is going to get you there."

Fall Out Boy formed in Chicago in 2001. The band consists of vocalist-guitarist Patrick Stump, guitarist Joe Trohman, bassist Wentz and drummer Andy Hurley.
