In the Rolling Stone interview, Wentz details his vision for DCD2 moving forward. He wants to revive the veteran bands from the old label, including acts Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Panic! At The Disco, as well as his own band Fall Out Boy, but also wants to add to the list with fresh new faces that fit into the Decaydance family. Newcomers already include Danish punk rock band New Politics as well as former Broadway singer Lauren Pritchard, who now goes by her stage name Lolo (and was also featured in P!ATD's hit song "Miss Jackson").

Decaydance has already been the platform for a few megastars in the past. Rapper Tyga was signed to Decaydance Records three years before he released his single "Rack City" and pop-punk group Hey Monday, with frontwomen Cassadee Pope, was signed four years before Pope captivated America and won NBC's reality competition The Voice.

DCD2's first release will be from newcomer Lolo as confirmed by Wentz in the article. Soon after, veteran band Cobra Starship will have a "big announcement" for fans who have long awaited a comeback from the group, which seamlessly brings new music to old fans as well as gives them a taste of the old Decaydance that they've been missing for so long. It was also announced that New Politics and Lolo will be joining Fall Out Boy on Monumentour this fall around the US with pop-punk group Paramore.
