Out are the emo locks, replaced by a more conventional rock and roll aesthetic of leather, sunglasses, and sneers. The band claims the visual changes aren't intentional and hands credit for their critically-acclaimed return to simply growing older.
Singer and guitarist Patrick Stump told *The Philippine Star*
"When we were younger we didn't like to discuss things. So, a lot of times, we would end up like being secretly angry at each other [laughs]... It was like, "Fine, you do that, I'll do this." It was just a childish thing of just trying not to argue with each other so you don't ever discuss anything."
More succinctly, guitarist Joe Trohman *comments* that their time apart gave them an opportunity to "become better human beings and better at working with each other." The proof is in Save Rock and Roll - drawing from a wider range of influences, the album introduces an eclectic, evolved spin on their old sound that suits their newfound adulthood.
This September, Fall Out Boy is touring with Las Vegas natives Panic! At the Disco, scheduled to release their fourth album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, October 8. Despite news that drummer Spencer Smith is taking a break from the band, the tour will continue as planned. Tour Dates supplied by MVMETICKETS.
