Pete Wentz, the bassist and lyricist for Fall Out Boy, has big plans this month!
And no it’s not that he’s buying a new, one-of-a-kind Bass! 😀
Pete is more than just a bassist for one of the greatest punk rock bands of all-time…he’s a business man and his next venture is quite wise if you ask me!
Pete will relaunch his record label “Decaydance” as “DCD2” later this month!!!
Pete’s first new release from DCD2 will be from the singer “LOLO”
Lauren Pritchard AKA “LOLO” is based out of Brooklyn, New York. She was trending in 2013 because she was featured on Panic! At The Disco’s single “Miss Jackson”.
It’s so convenient, that her video for her first single, “Hit & Run” came out today:
Pete’s next project will be a release from the band “New Politics”. I’ll be honest with you…I saw this band play a 25 minute set in my favorite concert venue (State Theatre in St. Petersburg, FL) and they were unbelievable! The amount of energy in their music and their movement on stage was electric! This is definitely one of the best bands out there and I’m proud of Pete for taking notice!
New Politics have done so well with their hit “Harlem” being in the Top 5 hits on modern rock radio for 2 months and their hit “Tonight You’re Perfect” making the Top 15!
And Pete hasn’t stopped there…he’s also invited LOLO and New Politics to open for Fall Out Boy on their MONUMENTOUR that is happening this summer!
Pete has an amazing track record of discovering new artists/bands including:
Not to mention that Fall Out Boy’s comeback album “Save Rock and Roll” came out on April 12th, 2013 and went gold with their multi-platinum single: “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)”
I hope that Pete continues to discover talent and everyone goes to see him on tour!!! 🙂
