Fall Out Boy just released a new music video, signifying the band’s return with a new album ahead as well. The music video, released on April 27, was for the track called “Young and Menace.” The release came with an announcement for Fall Out Boy’s comeback album, “MANIA.” The new album in question is set for a full release on September 15, but fans can already pre-order it here.

“MANIA” will mark the band’s seventh album overall. It succeeds Fall Out Boy’s sixth studio album, “American Beauty/American Psycho,” which was released back in 2015. Along with the announcement of the new album came the reveal of the band’s “MANIA” Tour as well, which will kick off in the U.S. on October 20. For every tour ticket sold, US $1 will go to the brand new Fall Out Boy fund. This aims to benefit charities all throughout Chicago. The first show of the tour will be at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, while their last scheduled show is set for the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, on November 18.

Formed in 2001, Fall Out Boy features Patrick Stump (lead vocals), Joe Trohman (lead guitar and backing vocals), Pete Wentz (bass, unclean vocals and backing vocals) and Andy Hurley (drums and percussion). Though this is the main lineup that has been prominently featured over the course of the band’s timeline, other former members include T.J. Kunasch, Brandon Hamm, Ben Rose and Mike Pareskuwicz. The band is also closely linked to Panic! at the Disco, with Pete Wentz having signed them to his record label, Decaydance Records, back in 2004.

Though 2017 marks 16 years since the band first took off, Fall Out Boy actually went on a hiatus from 2010 to 2012. While Stump was the only one who pursued a solo career, the break was ultimately beneficial as a whole, as the time away from the Fall Out Boy image managed to push each member into self-improvement. As Rolling Stone reported back in 2013, it was notably Stump who prompted the hiatus, as he believed pushing on with what they had going on at the time would lead to hostility among the members and ultimately, a breakup. Though some of the band members had initially opposed the idea, they later relented in the end.

The Fall Out Boy new album, “MANIA,” will be the band’s first in two years. Watch their new music video for “Young and Menace” below:
