Fall Out Boy Frontman Working On Banana Splits Score


Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump is working on a new soundtrack for the upcoming The Banana Splits Movie, which is described as a horror movie reboot of the popular 1960s kids’ show.

A rock band made up of four fictional animal characters, the Banana Splits first appeared in a children's variety program called The Banana Splits Adventure Hour that initially ran on Saturday mornings from 1968 through 1970. The upcoming movie, however, is said to give the concept an R-rated horror twist. It will air later this year on Syfy.

Stump has composed several scores in the past, including the films Gnome Alone, Spell and Changeland, along with a six-part science docuseries called Let Science Speak. Stump also provided the voice for a character in Gnome Alone.

​Fall Out Boy's last album, Mania, came out in January 2018 and was followed by an EP called Lake Effect Kid later that year. The band is currently on a break with no official plans at the moment.
