L.I.F.T are the latest act to sign to Wentz's label DCD2 and will also support FOB on their upcoming tour.
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and former Panic! At The Disco member Spencer Smith have just announced that they have signed a new band to DCD2 Records.
As a label, DCD2 has always been about finding like-minded creative people and magnifying their vision. Since the founding of decaydance (with our first signing Panic! At The Disco) to what is now callled DCD2 Records, I have sought a partner that shares this spirit. That said, I think it’s really fitting to announce that Spencer Smith is back at DCD2 in an official role working to help grow and develop new acts on our roster. This has been a long time coming so I’d like to announce our first signing together: L.I.F.T - who in so many ways remind me of why I started this label... welcome to the family @loveinfuturetimes
Spencer has just joined the label in a management position and will be working with Pete to lead the career of their latest signing, the San Diego-based, emo/hip-hop hybrid act L.I.F.T.

Pete had previously hinted at a new signing to the label with a cryptic post in Japanese that translated as 'Cassette Tapes', the name of their upcoming single which will drop this Friday (February 9th).
