Braving the steamy New York City weather, Fall Out Boy showed up at the “Today” show for a live performance this morning (July 19).
Patrick, Pete, Joe, and Andy were in fine form as they took the Rockefeller Plaza stage for a trio of hit songs, including “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark,” and “Alone Together.”
Building the buzz for their new album Save Rock and Roll, coming April 16th, Fall Out Boy just dropped a new video for their song “The Phoenix.”
And it seems the new clip builds on the previously released “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” storyline, opening with Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz and the boys getting thrown into a van while blindfolded.
They’re gearing up for the release of their comeback album Save Rock and Roll and subsequent tour, and Fall Out Boy paid a visit to iHeartRadio Studios to discuss how things are going so far.
Drummer Andy Hurley noted that it’s quite a transition going back out on the road to play night-after-night live shows. “There was this moment before the first show where I was like, ‘Man, do I really want to do this? This is stressful!’ But once we started playing it’s like, that’s my favorite thing in life.”
They’ve been on hiatus for a few years now, but Fall Out Boy is back with a brand new song and a forthcoming world tour.
The “Sugar We’re Going Down” rockers posted a message to their fans via their website, stating, “When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. It’s why we started fall out boy in the first place. . This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. we needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.”
