Fall Out Boy 2013 promo photo burning records thrash hits

So Fall Out Boy are back. We queued up in Camden behind hundreds of teenage girls and dozens of confused Eskimo Callboy fans (their show was originally set to be at The Underworld) to see Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley strut their stuff again

Six things we learnt whilst screaming along to Fall Out Boy in Camden

1) Who cares that it’s only February, the award for “Most Anticipated Gig of the Year” is already pretty much sewn up. By 5 o’clock the queue is snaking around the Underworld with kids desperate to buy spares longingly shooting sideways glances at those with golden tickets to this super-intimate show. Inside the atmosphere is one of hushed excitement and tetchy nervousness. Welcome. It’s here.

Pop punk extravagants, Fall Out Boy have been filling the UK’s arenas recently, so we sent Andy Parker down to hang out with hordes of screaming girls. He eventually manages to get over his issues with the Chicago emos…

Fall Out Boy Arena Thrash Hits Pete Wentz Patrick Stump

Fall Out Boy have several issues in my mind. The first is that they have an attractive bass player with an equally hot celeb wife. The second is that they play incredibly catchy and well-structured rock songs.

We knew it was coming on previous effort Infinity On High, and the cynic in me wishes to destroy Fall Out Boy‘s completed transformation into a pop band, but this album is irresistible.

Five albums in and the Chicagoans have gone from a fairly workaday pop-punk band with an extra touch of class, through one of the few albums where every track is unskippable with From Under The Cork Tree to this, a record that I have been awaiting with almost equal amounts of fear and excitement.

Fall Out Boy Arena Thrash Hits Pete Wentz Patrick Stump

Fall Out Boy announced today via a MySpace bulletin that they are to play three arena shows this October.

Birmingham NEC
21 Glasgow SECC
22 London Wembley Arena

Even better news is that Overcast Kids (Fall Out Boy fanclub members) can buy presale tickets from 2pm Wednesday, 16 July. These tickets also qualify the member for a Meet & Greet session and Early Entry lottery. How exciting.

The next presale starts at 9am Friday, 18 July from Fall Out Boy’s official website and then everyone else can get their hands on tickets from 9am Monday, 21 July from usual ticket outlets.

Got that?
