Add Folie to your Holiday List
If youre gonna need some new Christmas…or assorted other Winter Holiday…carols this year, dont worry. Fall Out Boy‘s Folie a Deux will not only release in 2008, it will release December 16th, just in time for the holidays.
Pete announced this on his blog. “While that late in the year may be a surprise to some, we felt that it was important to get our record out this year for our fans.” Pete, sweetie, to borrow a little from you: we don’t care when you release, so long as we get that album.
But we almost didn’t get the album this year. Apparently marketing statistics showed that holding off until next year was the best idea, until the band collectively said there was no way that was happening. They want their fans to have the CD before midnight strikes on December 31st, 2008.
So take this chance to share the joy of giving this holiday season. Give a friend a chance to listen to “I Don’t Care” or “Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet” and see what they think. Join a street team, make a fanvideo with one or both of the songs, request them over and over again on the radio, see if you can perform them at karaoke. Fall Out Boy is doing what they can to make sure we get this album in 2008, lets do what we can to show the label the demographic research only tells you so much.
