Pete Wentz Explains Influence Behind Black Cards' Sounds

The new songs like 'Club Called Heaven' and 'Beating in My Chest' from the new band are inspired by the Jamaican vibes.

As people grow more curious about his new project Black Cards, Pete Wentz is finally willing to explain further about the band. In a long post on the band's official website, the Fall Out Boy bassist cited his recent visit to Jamaica as inspiration behind his new sounds.

"The takeover, the break is indeed over," he started. "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 traveling 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 by songs like 'Two Sevens Clash' and 'Warriors'."

"I'd never heard any of these songs but could imagine them having an everlasting imprint, like people would dance to this stuff forever. I could feel these songs really meant something. Not just in Jamaica but globally, crossing through culture and language."

Wentz didn't mention anything about the band's line-up but he did name one person who helped him recording Black Cards' songs. He stated, "I started collaborating via email with my friend Sam, who I knew from working on 'As Cruel as School Children' [Gym Class Heroes' 2006 album]. He had been listening to a lot of old British stuff and we mashed that with the island vibe in the studio."

On why he chose a female vocalist in this group, Wentz shared, "I couldn't imagine trying to replace Patrick [Stump]. Combine all this with my nonsense and ideas. Stuff I could never write or never had a perspective to write from in FOB." In other words, he just wants "to try something different."

Closing the message, Pete Wentz insisted that he remains "Fall Out Boy's #1 fan."
