M A N I A
FALL OUT BOY LP OUT THIS FALL
New Song and Music Video “YOUNG AND MENACE” Available Now27 April 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Following a week of enigmatic posts and buzz across social media, multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Chicago band, Fall Out Boy dropped a new song called “Young and Menace” today. The song is available now via Island Records/DCD2 Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company on all digital service providers. The band also released the song’s music video – watch below. “Young and Menace”, written and produced by Fall Out Boy, is the first taste of new music off the band’s forthcoming seventh studio album M A N I A, out September 15, 2017 on. M A N I A is available for pre-order now. “There’s a lyric in the song, ‘trying to send the world a message, I was young and a menace,’ that reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. 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,” says Fall Out Boy bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz of the reasoning behind the song’s title. “It’s hard to rationalize rage – it’s hard to quantify anxiety...this song does neither, it embraces the wave.” Of the video, Wentz describes the protagonist’s journey to explore the world outside one she’s previously known. “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.” The band will embark on a 20-city North American fall arena tour, kicking off in Cleveland, OH on October 20 and travel through Toronto on October 25 for a show at the Air Canada Centre.

M A N I A is the follow-up album to the band’s sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho, which debuted at #1 upon its January 2015 release. Hailing from Chicago, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy – Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) – has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and other prestigious publications.
