- Fall Out Boy Performs New Song “Young and Menace” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
- American rock band Fall Out Boy appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the band performed their newest song "Young and Menace".
The song was released on April 27 and written by Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley. And the music video, directed by Brendan Walter and Mel Soria, was premiered on VEVO on the same day.
The track is taken from their upcoming seventh studio album "Mania", which will be released on September 15, 2017.
The album is the first LP in two years since "American Beauty/American Psycho".
Also, the band embarks the tour "The M A N I A Tour" to promote the new album at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on October 20, 2017. The band will donate $1 from each ticket sold to charities in Chicago where is their hometown.
On May 16, the band revealed behind the scenes of the music video for "Young and Menace".
Pete Wentz (bass) explained the concept of the video;
"The concept of the video is realizing that your place in the world is maybe not just what you thought it is, or thought it was growing up. I grew up as a weird kid in a place where I felt like I didn't fit in. It wasn't until finding punk rock and stuff, that I felt like I found other people who similarly felt like they didn't fit in."
Director Mel Soria said about the video;
"Anybody knows what it's like to feel like they don't belong and have to fight for a place in the world. That's what 'Young and Menace' is about."
Pete Wentz added:
"It's our right to be angry and disenchanted, and it's all right to voice that anger. I kind of was thinking back to when I was going through a lot of turmoil when I was younger. I wasn't sure yet that I figured out what I wanted to say, but I knew I was pissed off and I wanted to say something."
