Fall Out Boy Releases New Song
Forget everything you think you know about Fall Out Boy. In case you missed it, their new track "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" was released yesterday along with the announcement that their new album, Save Rock And Roll, is due out May 6. And don’t forget the world tour. My brain exploded into a bajillion pieces after this song came and roundhouse-kicked me in the head. Fall Out Boy, whose last album Folie å Deux was released in 2008, has definitely been making a departure from their sound since the breakthrough success of 2005’s From Under The Cork Tree, and with the release of this new song, they are stretching even further.
I am beyond pumped to hear what this new album will sound like in its entirety. Too many people get pissed off when their favorite band changes their sound and are quick to say they have either "sold out" or their music is "nothing like their first album." For me its refreshing to see bands consistently transforming. If you aren’t evolving and making changes, then what have you learned?
So before you go on sippin’ that haterade any longer, check out Fall Out Boy’s new single, "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)," below.
Of course let us not forget what led to this moment: "Sugar, We’re Going Down."
