The most successful artists know that the key to popular longevity comes in learning how to change while staying the same. It’s something Fall Out Boy have done repeatedly over the years; the scruffy pop-punk act of Take This To Your Grave begat the arena-emo marauders of the band’s commercial heyday, which in turn birthed the more personal-oriented act that furnished Folie A Deux. So if the first glimpse of post-hiatus Fall Out Boy appears a little strange, take a step back and try to see it in context.
Think of the Chicago quartet like a four-headed Doctor Who; they’re not different people than they were before, they’ve just regenerated once again. New trappings, same Time Lords.Because, sure, if you spent the three years of Fall Out Boy’s hiatus praying to the Patron Saint Of Liars And Fakes for a 10-year Take This To Your Grave tour and pretending nothing post-2004 existed, you could be forgiven for mistaking “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” for an alien transmission; though you’d at least have to concede that that song title is quintessential Fall Out Boy. But if you’re the sort who instead spent that period hashtagging Tumblr posts #BelieversNeverDie and reblogging animated gifs of Pete Wentz going tongue-to-fingers-to-eyebrow, all the while soaking up Folie A Deux — an album that really needed some soaking time for its nuance to bloom — then “Light Em Up” should feel like the natural next step in what’s been an ongoing process of discovery and reinvention.
“Light Em Up” is a logical progression for the band — sample the cavernous stomp of “This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race”’s monster pre-chorus, the herky-jerk chug of “I Don’t Care”’s verses, the nervous breakdance of Patrick Stump solo jams like “Explode” and “Porcelain,” and a splash of what’s-hot-on-radio, and “Light Em Up” is the eminently predictable conclusion we all should have seen coming. Yet, given the time away and the fact that they’ve never put it all together in quite this way, the song still manages to sound fresh.
Fall Out Boy made their live return playing their first show after four years of being on hiatus tonight in Chicago, Illinois. Check out the setlist below and make sure to get your tickets for their spring tour!
While the rumors are always there, there’s a lot of buzz going on around a tweet that Beau Bokan (Blessthefall / #1 Pup Fresh Fan) posted a bit ago. While we can’t confirm this being true, we will keep you updated as more information is given to us. Make sure you follow us on Twitter for more pupdates!
Long live the car-crash hearts! That’s right, the hole in your chest will not be mended anytime soon according to a tweet Patrick Stump sent out regarding the recent Fall Out Boy rumors. Head below to see what the Stumpster had to say.
But this does raise suspicion. Why would Beau—who is clearly a badass—start a rumor? Could PStump be trying to cover up FOB writing because they have a surprise in store for us? Maybe Patrick is being honest…maybe they aren’t writing an album, but are gearing up for a reunion tour? I mean, they are just on hiatus, guys. They gotta get back together sooner or later. Give us your thoughts.
