It sounds like an April Fool’s joke, but it’s far from it.

Fall Out Boy announced the record earlier today, and in minutes it had already sold out.

They posted an image to social media of the unique vinyl and captioned it, “Introducing Crynyl™, records filled with real tears for maximum emotional fidelity. So Much (For) Stardust is available for pre-order now on Only 50 copies were made! It includes one double-sided, tear-filled, LP, packaged in a gatefold box with built-in tissue dispenser. p.s. if you don’t get your hands on one, we will be giving a few away soon.”

The record contains tears from all of the band members, including Pete Wentz who can be seen gathering tears in a promotional video.

On social media, one fan touched on the heart of why everyone is losing their mind over the unique albums; “I can’t think of anything more emo than selling Pete’s literal tears.”

If that sounds weird to you, it’s possible you’re not familiar enough with Fall Out Boy – weird is entirely in their wheelhouse.

Fall Out Boy released their most recent album, “So Much (For) Stardust” on March 24, not long after Joe Trohman announced he would be stepping back to focus on his mental health, saying it had “rapidly deteriorated over the past several years.”

He released a statement about his plans to step back, writing, “Neil Young once howled that it’s better to burn out than to fade away. But I can tell you unequivocally that burning out is dreadful.”

Trohman added, “Without divulging all the details, I must disclose that my mental health has rapidly deteriorated over the past several years. So, to avoid fading away and never returning, I will be taking a break from work which regrettably includes stepping away from Fall Out Boy for a spell.”

But, he says that the band’s new LP “fills me with great pride,” and promised that his break will only be temporary. “So, the question remains: Will I return to the fold? Absolutely, one-hundred percent. In the meantime, I must recover which means putting myself and my mental health first. Thank you to everyone including my bandmates and family, for understanding and respecting this difficult, but necessary, decision.”

He concluded, “Smell you sooner than later, Joe Trohman”

Lead guitarist Patrick Stump said of Trohman’s decision at the time that he was “really proud.” He added, “It was his decision to [put out that statement] and I’m really proud of him. It’s really brave [to be so open]. I’m so impressed with the way he’s able to just share, because I’m a very reserved person. I admire him.”

The band told fans to keep an eye on social media for opportunities to win the remaining Crynyl albums.
