Fall Out Boy Returns to Singapore in 2018. Do We Still Care? Will We Be There?

By  November 19, 2017

Probably.

But if this writer were to be perfectly honest, he’d really rather see their MONUMENTOUR mates, Paramore, whose After Laughter album remains as one of the few excellent releases this year.

Can Fall Out Boy say the same for their not two, but FOUR most recent promotional singles?

Fans of alternative music will tell you that the fatigue when it comes to being constantly disappointed by your musical heroes is real. We’re either trying to reconcile with the fact that there exists a seemingly ubiquitous smog of predatory behaviour perpetuated by some musicians or in FOB’s case, run the risk of tolerating tragically lacklustre new material.  

American Beauty/American Psycho was a great record but my God did they milk it dry. It’s difficult to believe to that almost three years have passed since then (it feels much longer).  That dubious rap/remix album? Their truly terrible remake of the Ghostbusters theme song that irked Ray Parker Jr.? Mistakes were made, man. Take the postponement of their forthcoming M A N I A LP as a prime example.

The four aforementioned singles aren’t bad per se, but neither are they promising. Weakest of which is Champion the latest addition to Fall Out Boy’s burgeoning stadium rock discography, a cheap Centuries knock off sharing an equally disposable chorus with The Last Of The Real Ones. The experimental Young and Menace is actually pretty wild (in a good way) and the concept of an EDM influenced FOB is ludicrous at best but here we are. Again, F O U R songs (out of ten) seem to be an overcompensation of some sort, so… fingers crossed M A N I A is gonna turn out OK?

The M A N I A Tour on the other hand is a guaranteed good time because how often do you get to lose your shit belting out Emo Night classics like Sugar We’re Goin Down, right? If you, like me, felt fairly confident that LAMC Productions was on the verge of officially announcing the arrival of Pete Wentz and co., here’s a familiar sentiment for you – more disappointment because we’re just as clueless. Here's what we do know from Fall Out Boy's Tumblr:
