Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz Denies He's Started A Reggae Band

July 19, 2010
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz Denies He's Started A Reggae BandFall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has played down reports that his new side-project is a reggae band.

In a recent interview, Wentz said Black Cards’ debut album would be a combination of reggae and British electro-pop music.

But he has now insisted that the group’s material resembles “global music”.

"I think it came off as though it was gonna be a reggae band ... that's not true," he told MTV News. "It's a mashing together of ideas — the first few pieces we put up were more big-band/jazz/dance, [but] I don't know how to describe it.

"There are a few songs that have more of a reggae swing to the beat. I think I meant that I'm interested in making global music.”

He added: “I like the idea of art transcending cultures and borders ... [but] who knows whether I can."

As previously reported, as well as Wentz, Black Cards includes the relatively unknown singer Bebe Rex.

Two song snippets are available at The group are expected to tour later this year.
