Fall Out Boy Sending Fans Mysterious Postcards From 'Pink Seashell Beach'

Fall Out Boy have been sending their fans mysterious postcards from "Pink Seashell Beach."
The back of each of the postcards say the same thing: "I saw you in a bright clear field. Hurricane heat in my head. The kind of pain you feel to get good in the end. Inscribed like stone and faded by the rain: 'Give up what you love give up what you love before it does you in…'"
In addition, the band have launched an accompanying website, sendingmylovefrompinkseashellbeach.com. It features the same style of writing as the postcards and reads, "Take pleasure in the details." Toward the bottom of the home page, Fall Out Boy encourage their fans to "Join us for a sneak peak into the world," while also warning: "Do not open before Christmas."
So, what does it all mean? Some speculate there is a treasure trove of new lyrics, song names or even an album title hiding in plain sight. As for the cryptic message as to not open before Christmas, could it mean Fall Out Boy fans will receive something special before December 25? Only time will tell.
The postcards and website appear to refer to Fall Out Boy's yet-to-be-announced eighth album. The band seemingly began teasing the record back in November when they placed an ad in the Chicago Tribune with the words, "FOB 8" and "If you build it, they will come."
