Fall Out Boy back to “saverock and roll”, touring Aus

It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for: After three very long (and very dark) years Fall Out Boy have returned from hiatus. Not only that, but they’ll be touring Australia in March.

The Chicago pop-punk act unexpectedly regrouped last night, dropping a new single, the Maroon 5-ish ‘My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)’ and details of a new album, the humbly titled Save Rock and Roll (out May 7). The follow-up to 2008’s Folie á Deux, it marks the 10th anniversary of the band’s seminal debut Take This To Your Grave.

Posting on their website last night, the band – Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley – were quick to point out that while they haven’t played together in five years, this wasn’t a reunion per se. “When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music,” the statement read. “Its (sic) why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place. This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.”

During their time apart, Patrick Stump released a solo album, guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley formed a side project called The Damned Things with members of Anthrax and Every Time I Die and Pete Wenz dabbled in dubstep under the name Black Cards.

Fall Out Boy will embark on a world tour following the release of Save Rock and Roll, including dates in the US, Europe and two Australian shows: March 25 at Metro Theatre in Sydney and March 27 at the Palace Theatre in Melbourne. Watch the video for ‘My Songs’ below, which was shot in the band’s hometown of Chicago.

Fall Out Boy Australian tour dates 2013:

Monday, March 25 – Metro Theatre, Sydney
Wednesday, March 27 – Palace Theatre, Melbourne

What is this "rock and/or roll" and why are they saving it?

Actually, rephrase that.

The AVClub's review of Pete Wentz's book, giving it a grade of 'F'

http://www.avclub.com/articles/pete-wentz-with-james-montgomery-gray,91937/

The book reads a bit like the discarded notebooks of an emo teenager.

Lolololol

oldgregg said on the 5th Feb, 2013

i really like that review. pretty much sums up everything i'd expect from a book written by wentz. he wrote some really good lyrics backs in the day, they were always about smart turns of phrases. the fact that he needed help to write the book (from someone who work for mtv no less) is a bit shit too.

No Pros and Cons of Breathing :( I don't think they ever perform it live but a girl can hope. Apart from that, I am very happy with this setlist.

oldgregg said on the 9th Feb, 2013

i'm happy, I Slept With Someone... is probably my fave FOB song, followed closely but Champagne For My Real Friends (kinda wish that was on there)

i'm pretty stoked on this set.

I always liked Nobdy Puts baby In The Corner and This Ain't A Scene best.

From Under The Cork Tree is their only album I like from start to finish, I could never get into their others. I like a lot of random songs on their other albums though.

liquidtopaz3

liquidtopaz3 said on the 9th Feb, 2013



This is one of my favourites too. I'm also really pleased with all of the Take This To Your Grave tracks, as I the only ones from that album I've seen them do (from memory) were Grand Theft Autumn and Saturday. Homesick at Space Camp and Of All The Gin Joints In The World would have been nice too, but I shouldn't complain.

that sounds slightly less painful live. I know the album will probably be embarrassingly pop, but it'd be nice if that song was the exception and not the rule. I'd settle for something closer to infinity on high, but a lot of the songs on folie a deux were in this mold and I'm not sure why they're so set on it.

stump is fucking boss. can't believe they're playing at the palace. considering I saw them at rod laver and festival hall. the show will be awesome.

Patrick Stump Vs Haters:

How many people reading this are fans of Nickelback? How about Dane Cook? Now, I can safely assume that, unless this blog gets reposted on a site dedicated to those respective artists, those questions would be met with tumbleweeds and the distant sound of crickets. Like Creed or Limp Bizkit or the “Dude! You’re getting a Dell!” kid, they’ve become ubiquitously hate-able. I would not be exaggerating to state I’ve simply never heard someone admit to liking them.

Why is that? Now, I’m not saying I like them. Like you (fellow pop culture spectator) I am honor-bound by the unspoken law that, no matter what, I am not allowed to say anything positive about these artists. What have they really done wrong? Have they offended me? Not really. I’ve been more offended by Michael Richards famous rant or Sean Connery’s statements about hitting women. I still watch Seinfeld and James Bond movies. Hell, the misogynistic subtext of James Bond movies offend more of my sensibilities than anything Nickelback ever did and yet I don’t have any problem escaping to a world of fast cars and women with offensively suggestive names (Pussy Galore? Like…are we not even trying?) Somewhere in the world at this moment, some snooty contrarian is probably defending the paintings of Adolph Hitler. Yet for some reason, here I am crippled by a vague and probably unwarranted desire not to appear to be a fan of Nickelback and Dane Cook.

That’s sad. In this generation of blazing wi-fi and scathing tweets, I think it’s very easy to lose sight of anyone else’s opinion. We’re so busy broadcasting our latest cultural disdain that we scantly notice anything we enjoy. “Oh man, this Rebecca Black kid is terrible! Let’s laugh at her!” has become more culturally relevant than “I really love this new Bilal record.” I read an entire article examining why we as a society don’t like Anne Hathaway’s (in my un-necessary opinion, lovely) face. Well, criticizing art and the artists that make it is a lazier pass time than creating or appreciating it.

- nickelback are shit.

- anything fall out boy make from this point onward will probably be shit.
