Fall Out Boy’s just released the official music video for “Young and Menace,” the first single off their upcoming album. The trippy video was released along with confirmation the group’s seventh studio album, M A N I A, will arrive on September 15, 2017. Fall Out Boy will embark on a 20-city tour this fall in support of the new album.

“There’s a lyric in the song, ‘trying to send the world a message, I was young and a menace,’ that reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. I didn’t look like anyone there or feel like anyone – I felt like an outsider in my own town. It wasn’t until I discovered punk rock and that community that I realized I did fit in somewhere in this world – with the other people who didn’t fit in,” said Fall Out Boy bassist & lyricist Pete Wentz of the reasoning behind the song’s title. “It’s hard to rationalize rage – it’s hard to quantify anxiety… this song does neither, it embraces the wave…”

Wentz also described the story told in the “Young and Menace” video. “The concept is the idea of a movie like Elf, where he realizes maybe he isn’t an elf after all, but ours has less comedic elements and more real world implication,” explained Wentz. “She realizes that maybe she is human after all – but maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think…”

The band’s fall tour will kick off on October 20, 2017 in Cleveland and is set to finish up on November 18th in Phoenix. Fall Out Boy will be contributing $1 from every ticket purchased to their Fall Out Boy Fund which supports Chicago-based charities. For info on purchasing tickets, visit www.falloutboy.com/tour.
