Fall Out Boy - Fall Out Boy hope to make fans 'cool'

Fall Out Boy hope their new record will show fans how to be ''cool''.

The group will release eight-track EP 'Pax-Am Days' later this month - just six months after comeback album 'Save Rock and Roll' hit stores - and bassist Pete Wentz hopes it will be inspirational for listeners.

He said: ''We have made some new fans - and younger fans - with the release of 'Save Rock and Roll', and rather than blowing them off, we figured it might be cool to let 'em check out some vinyl and show 'em some of the bands and music we grew up on.

''I mean, besides Jay Z, I don't think anybody was born cool, so sometimes it's nice to show new kids the ropes. Fall Out Boy has always been about inclusion

''I remember my friend's older brother playing me [heavy metal band] Metallica's 'Kill 'Em All' on one side of a cassette tape and [punk group] Screeching Weasel on the other, and I about wore that thing out. That's what we wanna do with this album.''

The 'Love, Sex, Death' band enjoyed working on the EP as it gave them a chance to explore a different sound.

Pete explained to MTV News: ''The truth is, both lyrically and musically, I think we threw some things in there that we probably would consider outside-the-box of a standard Fall Out Boy full-length.

''There were moments where I felt like maybe we were taking it a bit too far, and I'd look at Ryan [Adams, producer] and he has this amazing mischievous grin on his face that said, 'No way!' And we'd do it. There are some gems in all that grime on there ... I'm proud of it.''
