Fall Out Boy Announces New Album, Tour Details, Posts New Song

Fall Out Boy has announced that its seventh studio album, titled Mania, will arrive on September 15th. The band has unveiled the set's first single, called "Young And Menace," along with an accompanying music video. In addition, the group has confirmed the details of a North American tour that will kick off on October 20th in Cleveland and end on November 18th in Phoenix.

In the clip, a young girl raised by beast-like creatures slowly discovers her humanity and escapes to seek the human world, ending up at a Fall Out Boy concert before waking up in bed while her real-life human parents engage in a vicious argument. Bassist Pete Wentz said in a statement, "She realizes that maybe she is human after all. But maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think."

  • Wentz added that the video was inspired by his childhood in the Chicago suburbs, explaining, "I didn't look like anyone there or feel like anyone. I felt like an outsider in my own town. It wasn't until I discovered punk rock and that community that I realized I did fit in somewhere in this world with the other people who didn't fit in."
  • Wentz told us a while back that he still feels like a regular person despite Fall Out Boy's success: "I am one of the most ordinary people, like, anyone will ever meet. And like, maybe I'm weird and, like, quirky, but not in a way that's interesting to photograph at all. You know, like, I spend 99 percent of my life reading and watching DVDs and hanging out in my backyard with my dog, you know, and the one percent where I'll, you know, I go into a club or I do whatever it is, like, is what people focus on. But honestly, it's like, I'm not that interesting of a person." :

Imagine Dragons Debut New Song 'Thunder'

Imagine Dragons have released their new single "Thunder." "Just a young gun with a quick fuse, I was uptight, wanna let loose," frontman Dan Reynolds sings as the track opens. "I was dreaming of bigger things, and wanna leave my own life behind. Not a yes sir, not a follower, fit the box, fit the mold, have a seat in the foyer, take a number, I was lightning before the thunder."

The track is the second single from the rocker’s forthcoming third studio album. That album’s first single "Believer," was released earlier this year.

Massive Back Catalog Of Unreleased Green Day Music Will Come Out One Day

Green Day has a huge back catalog of unreleased music that will eventually see the light of day, according to Green Day Authority. The site reported that bassist Mike Dirnt called the previously unheard trove of material a "Machiavellian catalog of s**t" in an interview with Australia's MusicFeeds, adding, "We have SO much stuff, and some of it has morphed into other songs."

Dirnt continued that some of the music "took 10, 20 years to evolve but started off as a jam or started off as us singing a different lyric to it or whatever. I mean, there’s little opuses in other songs and things like that we’ve done that people have never heard."

  • Dirnt also revealed that a lot of the material is in listenable shape, saying, "What’s cool is that a lot of it’s recorded really well, too. There’s cassette tape, demo tape stuff, but there’s also stuff that was recorded very well that sounds like it could be on a record. We just didn’t put it out."
  • The bassist said that all the music will eventually be released, adding, "I don’t know when they’ll see the light of day, but me and Billie (Joe Armstrong, frontman) always said, 'At some point everything comes out in the wash.' At some point it’ll all come out."
  • Green Day's latest album, Revolution Radio, debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart last October and features the hits "Bang Bang" and "Still Breathing."
  • The trio now tours Australia, New Zealand and Europe before kicking off a new round of North American shows on August 1st in Auburn, Washington.
