Fall Out Boy are offering another glimpse into their highly anticipated new album So Much (For) Stardust with the drop of a brand new song “Heartbreak Feels So Good”.
The release of “Heartbreak Feels So Good” follows Fall Out Boy’s announcement last week that their eighth studio album So Much (For) Stardust will arrive March 24th 2023 on Fueled By Ramen/Elektra/DCD2 Records. The record was produced by Neal Avron.
In tandem with the album announcement, the band released the record’s first single “Love From The Other Side,” immediately setting off a global wave of unprecedented excitement and chatter from fans worldwide that shows no signs of slowing. Consequence hailed that the track “pushes guitars back to the forefront, while demonstrating the band hasn’t lost any of their flair for the dramatic.”
Anticipation for the So Much (For) Stardust started brewing last November, after a mysterious ad appeared in the Chicago Tribune and continued building with multiple teaser sites in December, the latter of which featured a clay animation video titled “A Claymation Fall Out Boy Celebration” on Christmas that included a quick audio preview of “Love From The Other Side” for eagle-eared fans. On January 11th, the band officially revealed the single’s release date just days before they took the stage at the 2023 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO on January 14th in Los Angeles, CA.
So Much (For) Stardust is Fall Out Boy’s first new studio album since 2018’s M A N I A, which garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album and marked their third consecutive and fourth overall #1 album in the US and their third consecutive #2 album in the UK.
Most recently, Fall Out Boy embarked on THE HELLA MEGA TOUR alongside Green Day & Weezer, playing live in front of over 1 million fans on a sold-out global stadium tour. The UK leg included numerous sold-out stadium gigs in Summer 2022 – including renowned venues like London’s Stadium, Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and Huddersfield’s John Smith’s Stadium. Critical and fan acclaim poured in, with USA Today hailing it “the most stacked line-up of any rock tour in 2021,” Billboard noting that each night was “serving up a buffet of hits in front of one of the largest concert crowds,” and Rolling Stone calling it “wildly entertaining.”
