Chicago alt-rock heroes’ Fall Out Boy’s Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits is set to make its vinyl debut on 22 May through Island/Ume.
The 2LP collection will be available on standard black vinyl, while uDiscover Music and Sound of Vinyl will also exclusively offer the release on neon yellow vinyl. As with the original first released in 2009, the vinyl edition will include all the songs released as singles to that point in the multi-platinum modern rock pioneers’ career in chronological order, as well as two new songs and two rarities that debuted as a part of the original collection.
Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits includes the Chicagoan outfit’s iconic hits such as RIAA platinum-certified ‘This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race,’ 4x platinum ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’ and gold-certified ‘Thnx fr th Mmrs.’
Also included are the Fall Out Boy essentials ‘Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy’ and ‘Saturday’ from their 2003 pop-punk debut album Take This To Your Grave, released by Florida-based indie label Fueled By Ramen; ‘Dance, Dance,’ described by NME as “a juggernaut-load” of “punk-pop riffage…omitting barbs of torment from every orifice…,” and ‘A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me,’ from 2005’s career-defining double-platinum hit platter and major-label debut on Island Records, From Under The Cork Tree.
Additionally, Believers Never Die includes ‘The Take Over, The Breaks Over’ and ‘I’m Like A Lawyer With The Way I’m Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)’ from Infinity On High, the title of their third album, which was named as a nod to a letter written by Vincent van Gogh to his brother in 1888. In the letter, Van Gogh described the energy instilled in his work due to his new bill of health and, specifically, the line, “Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”
Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits draws from four studio albums, including ‘America’s Suitehearts’ and ‘What A Catch, Donnie’ from Folie à Deux and the band’s CD/DVD release Live In Phoenix, which features John Mayer on ‘Beat It.’ The hits collection also includes two new songs and two rarities released on the original 2009 edition: ‘From Now On We Are Enemies,’ ‘Yule Shoot Your Eye Out,’ ‘Growing Up’ and ‘Alpha Dog,’ which was a new recording on the original release.
