Fall Out Boy ’s new EP, PAX*AM DAYS , won’t arrive in stores until next Tuesday, but the band is giving us something to tide us over until then. The group is offering a stream of every track from the upcoming release in a playlist on their YouTube channel .
PAX*AM DAYS features eight new tracks, almost all of which are under two minutes long. The collection, produced by Ryan Adams at his PAX AM Studio in Hollywood, was inspired by a variety 80s-punk tracks.
Explaining why they made the album, Fall Out Boy states on their Facebook page , "Sometimes to get where you are, you need to get back to why you even began in the first place: making noise for no reason, laughing at jokes…just the camaraderie of fast, loud songs. This is the closest to the earliest inception of what led us to Fall Out Boy: this is the alpha to the omega that is Save Rock and Roll ."
PAX*AM DAYS will be available both a digital release and as an add-on to a Limited Edition version of Save Rock and Roll , both of which are coming out October 15. November 29 will bring a vinyl version of the set for Black Friday Record Store Day.
Here is the PAX*AM DAYS EP track list:
“We Were Doomed from the Start”
“Art of Keeping Up Disapperances”
“Hot to the Touch, Cold on the Inside”
“Love, Sex, Death”
