Fall Out Boy also treated their fans to a brand-new track “The Last of the Real Ones”. The song is available to stream or download on all digital services now and the multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band have also premiered a video, directed by Mccoy | Meyer, to accompany the song (view here).
Of the song, Pete Wentz says: “That kind of love you feel for someone because of their glitches, not in spite of them… where you feel the vacuum of them everywhere… and your heart just feels like TNT, quicksand and oblivion all at once…”
Fall Out Boy play a very special show tomorrow night in their home town of Chicago at the House Of Blues. They then kick off The MANIA Tour in Cleveland on October 20th. Blackbear and Jaden Smith are set as support acts on the tour. For tickets and more information, please visit www.falloutboy.com/tour.

Tim Commerford's new politically-charged punk rock trio Wakrat (pronounced wôk•rat) will make their UK live debut on Tuesday, July 26th in a one-night-only appearance at The Black Heart in Camden with all proceeds from the gig going towards the homeless charity Shelter.
Notorious for his infamous bass lines in Rage Against The Machine, Commerford fronts Wakrat on vocals and bass over a tight mix of punchy, rhythmic and dynamic punk rock, fuelled by political dissent, social commentary and an undiminished subversion and questioning of authority.
Commerford said: "We are gearing up to be on the offensive. Our mission is to attack modern music and smash the grid. Unapologetic, unrelenting, unbridled and uncensored. Understood?"
In 2010, Rage Against The Machine donated all the proceeds from the Christmas #1 single to Shelter after Jon and Tracy Morter's Facebook campaign launched "Killing in the Name" to the #1 spot - toppling Simon Cowell and the X-Factor monopoly. Wakrat will open the 27-date #MakeAmericaRageAgain tour with Tim's other band, Prophets Of Rage, later this summer, meaning that Commerford will be pulling double duty. Prophets Of Rage have also promised to gatecrash the Republican Party Convention on July 19th to protest at Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. Wakrat, signed to UK-based Earache Records, will release their debut album on November 8th to coincide with the US election.
Tickets for the gig on Tuesday, July 26th at The Black Heart in Camden are priced at £10 and will go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, July 12th) at 10am from https://dice.fm/event/wakrat-26th-jul-the-black-heart-london-tickets
