Fans have already probably cried a whole bunch over Fall Out Boy’s incredible recent album So Much (For) Stardust – and now the band are joining in on the weepy action with a new vinyl version of the record made with the band’s own tears.

So Much (For) Stardust is the first-ever release on what they’re cleverly dubbing ‘Crynyl’, which is made by gathering “tear samples using sterile collection kits” and then diluting these drops “into a sonically-optimised solution” before sealing them into each album “using proprietary Crynylseal technology”.

A brief statement unveiling Crynyl explains: “Music is more than just sound waves. It’s passion, struggle and emotion. That’s why we developed a new kind of record: one that contains the artists’ actual tears. When you listen to a Crynyl release, you’re not just listening to what the artist played, you’re feeling what they felt.”

FOB’s first Crynyl not only includes the ‘tear-filled LP’, but it also comes with a built-in tissue dispenser. Oh yeah, and because this is Pete Wentz we’re talking about, they’ve warned that it ‘may contain eyeliner traces’.

Sadly only 50 copies were made and have already sold out, but the band promise they will also be “giving a few away soon”.
