Head over to blackcardsmusic.com and check out Pete Wentz's new project, Black Cards, which is his project while his main band, Fall Out Boy, is on hiatus. There are two songs being streamed as snippet clips. The message reads: "The takeover, the break is indeed over. As you may've read about over the last week, I've got a new band called Black Cards. When FOB went on hiatus, I wasn't really sure what to do with myself. I know I wanted to keep travelling the world with my family. We had been to Jamaica recently. I spent a lot of time hanging around the beaches and I started to get inspired again… I started collaborating via email with my friend Sam [Hollander], who I knew from working on [2006 Gym Class Heroes album] 'As Cruel as School Children'. He had been listening to a lot of old British stuff and we mashed that with the island vibe in the studio. I wanted to try a female vocalist cos I couldn't imagine trying to replace Patrick… I know this won't be for everyone but honestly it's a chance for me to try something different. I remain Fall Out Boy's #1 fan."
What did you think? I thought "Club Called Heaven" and "Beating in My Chest" were very electro, very studio processed with their female voice, and were not at all like the pop punk of Wentz's main band!
