NME recently spoke with bassist Pete Wentz about their upcoming 2024 Download Festival headline slot – you can get tickets here.
Wentz said: “We want people to be able to excel in their weirdness. We want people to feel comfortable creating, knowing that others will embrace it.”
“I was thinking about this last night,” he continued. “When I was younger and I saw a film or watched a band, it never made me feel like I could do that. We came from a little attic practice space in Chicago. We played countless shows that nobody came to. We didn’t have people telling us we were going to be pop stars. I really hope people walk away from a Fall Out Boy knowing that us playing an arena in their town means that they can do it too, whatever their version of the thing is.”
Fall Out Boy have also been announced to play When We Were Young 2024 – get your tickets here.
