Fall Out Boy has come a long way from playing all ages shows in cruddy Chicagoland venues, graduating to arena shows with all the bells and whistles. But the band is bringing the scale back down for the hometown release of their new album M A N I A in September.

The band has also grown far beyond their early emo-pop roots, and you can expect Fall Put Boy to continue to push boundaries on their next album. The first taste of the new music hit in April, and "Young And Menace" sees the band playing with Top 40 conventions to create a weird hybrid of guitars and beats that give more than a knowing wink towards EDM conventions, including a well-place pop drop.

The follow up single "Champion" came out today and shows the band hewing a little more closely to their rock roots, while still keeping their eyes on filling the sonic space with a stadium-sized drum thump and chorus.

To celebrate the new album, Fall Out Boy will be playing a special show at House Of Blues on Sept. 16. Tickets go onsale on June 27 at 10 a.m., but in order to be eligible to buy a ticket you will need to register as a Ticketmaster Verified Fan before June 25 at 5 p.m. So register now, and good luck getting into the small club show!
