Ashlee Simpson's soon-to-be-ex-husband Pete Wentz remains hard at work. He told SPIN that the debut album from his new band, Black Cards, will be out in late summer or early fall, and it will feature guest appearances by Neon Trees singer Tyler Glenn and dancehall rapper Shaggy. "We have a whole Black Cards album done, and now we're just writing more songs that might beat out some of the existing songs," he said. "There are also a couple of new songs that aren't even finished yet that could make it on the record. I have a song that I think I posted a demo of called 'Paradox,' a song called 'Take More Than I Can Handle.'"
The band will play a Central Park Summer Stage show on September 1st, but other than that, there are no concert plans at the moment. That’s okay. One big show is special.
So what about Fall Out Boy? Wentz said that he and his bandmates, who are on hiatus from the band that made them all famous, "are all closer friends now that we have been in a really long time." He even spoke about Patrick Stump's new solo album, saying, "I've been nothing but supportive. I also think his music is really good. I got a chance to see a video of some of the live shows and it just looks insane. He's doing a thing that nobody else is doing right now."
Are you stoked to check out Black Card?
