There’s been a change of plans with Black Cards — the band created in 2010 by Wilmette native Pete Wentz after Fall Out Boy went on indefinite hiatus. Black Cards originally had a reggae-ska-pop sound with singer Bebe Rexha but became an electronic dance music duo featuring only Wentz and Spencer Peterson when Rexha and the band parted ways in January.
On Tuesday, Black Cards will release the EP “Under Your Disillusion” on iTunes.
“I had been through a lot in the past year — that’s really where the title of the EP came from,” Wentz wrote by email Friday. “Obviously, it’s a play on Guns N’ Roses (“Use Your Illusion”), but it’s, like, choose your own problems — a sort of pick your poison. So the EP was cool to do — it is the perfect capsule of a moment in time for me. Good to be able to write some words again.”
What’s next for Black Cards after the EP is released?
“We have some shows here and there,” Wentz wrote. “I think the great thing about Black Cards is it is whatever we want it to be. I only do it because it’s fun and I am passionate about it. Where we’re going, we don't need roads.”
