Fall Out Boy Trade Glitz for Grit on New Hardcore Song "Love, Sex, Death"

It turns out we'll be hearing the results of Fall Out Boy's "wild" recording session with Ryan Adams after all. 

The Chicago pop-punk quartet announced their new record Pax Am Days Sunday night, featuring eight songs recorded in two days at Adams' Pax Am Studio in Los Angeles. The album is available for preorder on iTunes, and will be part of a two-disc deluxe edition of the band's latest album Save Rock and Roll on Oct. 15.

The video for "Love, Sex, Death," the first cut from the album, is available via Rolling Stone. As FOB bassist Pete Wentz told Noisey earlier this month, the track showcases influences from Misfits, Black Flag and other late '70s and early '80s punk bands. Wentz called it the "antithesis" of Save Rock and Roll – and based on the aggressive guitar work on "Love, Sex, Death," that's exactly what we can look forward to.

While the music videos from the more polished Save Rock and Roll are forming an 11-part series called The Youngblood Chronicles, the clip for "Love, Sex, Death" is as raw as you can get: a fast-paced supercut of footage shot by the band members themselves on tour over the summer.
