Fall Out Boy saved rock and roll*

It has taken me a while, but I’ve finally gotten around to listing to the new Fall Out Boy album ‘Save Rock and Roll’ and I am addicted!

Even though it was released back in April and I downloaded it from iTunes immediately, it has taken me till now to actually listen to it properly. It has been on repeat for the last two days.

I’m already pulling lyrics out because they just stand out to me.

Case and point:

I may have also created this in photoshop and then instagramed that shit.**

I think my favourite song on the album is Just One Yesterday (feat. Foxes).

I’d trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday.

Another lyric I love is this one from Save Rock and Roll:

I need more dreams and less life and I need that dark in a little more light. I cried tears you’ll never see, so fuck you, you can go cry me an ocean and leave me be.

And Elton John is in on this – HOW FREAKING COOL.

I also really love what they did with the videos – watch them all!

So yes, I’m horribly addicted to Fall Out Boy again.*** If you have not listened to the album or any of their past work, seriously, just do it.

*See what I did there?
**I’m fine with it.
***Well played, dudes, well played.

Fall Out Boy are back and I’m so freaking excited!

This morning I woke to a wonderous email. An email detailing the return of Fall Out Boy. OH HAPPY DAYS.

Fall Out Boy have been on hiatus for the past three years – they adamantly deny that they ever broke up – and now finally, with having denied their come back as well, have surprised* us all quite suddenly with a new single, new tour dates and the announcement of a new album.

Hooray!

In addition to this announcement, the band have released their new single from the album – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).

I love it.

And the best part about all of this is that they are doing a tour with a Sydney date – March 25! I will be there, hopefully, if I can get tickets and I’m going to bloody well try with all my life.

Welcome back Fall Out Boy, I look forward to the gig, the album release and whatever else you have to come.
