WATCH: FALL OUT BOY Returns With "Young And Menace"
Fall Out Boy has dropped a music video called “Young And Menace” - their first single from their upcoming album M A N I A. Set for a September release this year, the new record is the band’s follow-up to 2015’s American Beauty/American Psycho.
This new track showcases the band's new direction in terms of their sound - as evidenced by its electronic music influence.
Band bassist Pete Wentz elucidated their single’s strikingly odd music video. “The concept is the idea of a movie like Elf, where he realizes maybe he isn’t an elf after all, but ours has less comedic elements and more real world implication. She realizes that maybe she is human after all – but maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think…”, he explained.
The veteran pop-punk group also posted a handwritten message to their fans!

Moreover, the band also announced an album tour beginning this October!
the M A N I A Tour begins in the U.S. on October 20th. Pre-order the album on store.falloutboy.com by Sunday night to get a pre-sale code to purchase tickets/VIP packages before anyone else on Monday at 10am local time. To make things easier, and as a thank you to the early birds (helping you catch that ??), bundles are being discounted from now through Sunday night. Starting on Monday, bundle prices will go up. If you can't order a bundle this weekend, sign up to our mailing list by Monday morning. A code will get sent out Monday in the afternoon for you to use on Tuesday. Everyone else will have to wait until Friday for general on sale to start. Also we’re proud to announce that $1 from every ticket sold will go towards the Fall Out Boy Fund. We created the fund as a way to give back to charities in our hometown of Chicago. Also Chicago, we didn't forget about you on the tour. We're planning something special ??
