Prior to the band’s grand return in 2013, it had been more than three years since Fall Out Boy fans had heard a peep from the group. The wait turned out to be worth it as Fall Out Boy dropped its fifth studio album, “Save Rock and Roll” in April, and has since been touring the world and working on individual music videos for each song off the album.
Fall Out Boy released the music video for “The Mighty Fall” with Big Sean on Aug. 29, which was the fifth installment to “The Young Blood Chronicles.” The series is set to include a video for each of the 11 songs from “Save Rock and Roll,” and already includes videos for “The Phoenix,” “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark,” “Young Volcanoes,” and “Alone Together.” So far, each of the videos has been connected to the previous one, and the tantalizing endings have left fans itching for the next one in the sequence.
“Save Rock and Roll” is the first album by the quartet since going on hiatus in 2009. They’ve been touring most of the year in support of the release, and are now set for a return to North America for the Save Rock and Roll Arena Tour, which will run throughout September. The Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., will house the first show on Sept. 5, with additional dates lined up for sites like the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. (Sept. 7), First Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo. (Sept. 18), and America’s Cup Pavilion in San Francisco, Calif. (Sept. 21). The final show on the docket is Sept. 29 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla.
In between traditional tour dates, Fall Out Boy will take time out to headline the Chicago-based Riot Fest on Sept. 13, where they will most certainly be greeted by a cluster of hometown fans in the band’s native city. Other performers on the bill for Riot Fest Chicago include blink-182, Brand New, The Pixies, and Taking Back Sunday.
