Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated band Fall Out Boy are on the road once again, playing some of their largest headline shows to date. Since their return from hiatus in 2013, the band has been producing rock tinted pop music, an evolution of the emo/pop punk which initially launched them into the spotlight.
Their two most recent albums, 2013’s comback album “Save Rock and Roll” and the 2015 folloup “American Beauty/American Psycho” both debuted at number one on the Billboard becoming Fall Out Boy’s second and third number one albums respectively. Those two albums also yielded six platnium selling singles, includ 4x platnium selling “Champion” and the band’s comeback single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” which went 5x platnium.
Their next album “M A N I A,” is due out January 19th, the album was originally scheduled to come out in September, but was pushed back because the band did not feel the album was fully done. “I’m never going to put a record out I genuinely don’t believe is at least as strong or valid as the one that came before it and in order to do that we need a little bit more time to properly and carefully record solid performances.” Said frontman Patrick Stump via Twitter of the decision to delay the album’s release.
To date, three singles from the upcoming “M A N I A” have been released, “Young and Menace,” “Champion,” and most recently “The Last of the Real Ones” which you can hear and view the music video for below.
Additionally, Fall Out Boy have been performing a fourth track from the album, “Expensive Mistakes” during their live show, but a recorded version of the song has not yet been released. Speaking to Billboard about the band’s live show, Bassist Pete Wentz called it “the biggest production that we’ve probably ever done as a band. It’s super visual. It’s still based on the album because I made the visuals before we finished the album. We live in a hip-hop world, a dance world, so it’s cool to have a couple of rock bands that are played on the radio and also can play in arenas. That’s what the staging’s supposed to be. It’s supposed to be a big rock show.”
