FOB's lead singer and guitarist guide us through their new music, talk the secrets behind their latest music video and react to Gaten Matarazzo's recent cover version.

Ahead of the release of their much anticipated seventh album MANIA, dropping January 19th, we caught up with Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump and Joe Trohman to talk new music, some classic tracks and that hilarious video for 'Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)'.

Fresh from an intimate (and sweaty) gig at the tiny Electric venue in Brixton, Patrick and Joe sat down with us in a very swanky East London hotel, covering everything from the upcoming Take This To Your Grave 15th anniversary to Patrick's reflections on his solo album Soul Punk.

Plus, we even managed to score Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo an invite to a FOB gig after his recent cover of 'Sugar We're Going Down', which he has now accepted on Twitter:

(You're welcome btw Gaten. Just remember who made this happen when you are putting a guestlist together for the gig).

You can watch our entire interview with Patrick and Joe in the video above, plus check back later this week to see them play a game of 'Welcome To The Comments Section'.
