Fall Out Boy Are Well On Their Way To Saving Rock and Roll! Live Review!


(PCM) It has been close to four or five years since we have had the chance to witness a Fall Out Boy live performance and I have to say without a doubt, their recent performance to the sold-out Electric Factory crowd was well worth the wait. Armed with their brand new album “Save Rock and Roll” and the amazing success of its’ first single “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em’ Up)”, Fall Out Boy are back and sounding as fresh and invigorated as ever.


Once the band took the stage the crowd erupted into shrieks of absolute exhilaration and were completely intoxicated by the sound and fury that was pouring forth from Fall Out Boy, as they blasted through their set list laden with hit song after hit song. I had always kind of looked at Fall Out Boy as being part of that emo-rock /pop punk genre, but it blew me way at just how heavy they are in the live environment. For songs such as “Thriller” and “A Little Less Sixteen Candles and A Little More “Touch Me” I was almost waiting for the headbanging and mosh pits to start opening up on the floor and it was awesome. It was a truly memorable experience to watch nearly everyone in the audience joining to together to belt out favorites such as “The Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race”, ” Sugar, We’re Going Down”, “Hum Hallelujah”, “Dance, Dance” and my personal favorite “I Don’t Care”.  The band closed out the main portion of their set with the current single “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘em Up)” which received a particularly spirited response from the crowd and followed that up with an encore that included the new album title track “Save Rock and Roll”, “Thanks for the Memories” and “Saturday” to close out the show.


Vocalist Patrick Stump sounded fantastic and his vocal prowess only seems to get better and better with each passing year. Stump has the uncanny ability to breathe a very particular life into the band’s lyrics and his voice is nothing less than tremendous. Bassist Pete Wentz ,guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley also played their parts to a tee and all appeared to be having the time of their lives rocking out on the stage. The band will be touring pretty much throughout the rest of the summer and are slated to appear at several of the European festivals such as Reading and Leeds along with Summer Sonic in Japan. They will also headline a larger amphitheater tour slated to begin later this fall with special guests Panic At The Disco and Twenty One Pilots.


It is no doubt that Fall Out Boy are doing their part to “save rock and roll” one show at a time and this one certainly goes down as one of the very best so far of this year. I say keep up the great work guys!  The new album absolutely rocks and without a doubt Fall Out Boy absolutely does too!
