Fall Out Boy Mania
Written by Catrina Lambert
As of April 27, the pop-punk band Fall Out Boy has released a new song, signalling the beginning of a new album as well as a tour, both entitled “Mania”, to be released on September 15. The song in question is called “Young and Menace”, and is very different to the usual style of music created by the band. The new song incorporates far more electronic-based elements and quiet vocals than the previous albums and songs, which were guitar, bass, and drum-based and had loud vocals. It’s unknown whether or not Fall Out Boy will continue with this alternative/indie style, or return to pop-punk. The music video itself follows a girl escaping her family of sheep-like monsters to a brightly lit neon city, then reawakens back home.
