@InvsbleFriends @MotionMarkus nice work with this one!
Throughout the summer of 2015 Fall Out Boy went on tour throughout the US as part of their 'Boys Of Zummer' tour which saw them play 40+ dates all around the country. The band toured with Wiz Kalifa and Hoodie Allen as part of the promotion in support of their sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho.
This particular performance was recorded in the boy's home town of Chicago and as might be expected for a homecoming gig, the crowd were on fine form. The band played a best of set including 'Sugar, We're Goin Down', 'This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race' and 'Dance, Dance'.
As a bonus, tour-mate Wiz Kalifa comes on stage to perform one of their more recent singles 'Uma Thurman'.
With Amazon launching Amazon Prime Music, does the new streaming service have what it takes to take down the likes of Spotify and Pandora?
Amazon unveiled their new streaming service last week, much to the surprise of music fans everywhere. Given the name Amazon Prime Music, it’s a service that boasts “unlimited, ad-free streaming” featuring a catalog with well over a million songs.
However, in a world ruled by the likes of Spotify and Pandora, is there really enough room for one more streaming service? If there is, it needs to do something that none of the competition is doing, and Amazon Prime Music does nothing of the sort. In fact, what was maybe supposed to scare the competition probably didn’t even make them bat an eye, because Amazon Prime Music doesn’t offer anything that you can’t find in something like Spotify -- but is it trying to take them down in the first place?

Pete Wentz relaunches Decaydance Records as DCD2 Records. Can it have the same impact that Decaydance did?
Decaydance Records was once the home to some of the hottest up and coming bands in the game. Formed by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz in 2005, the label became an imprint to Fueled By Ramen Records where it held a roster featuring the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Gym Class Heroes, and Cassadee Pope’s first band, Hey Monday. As the label signed others and let some go, it began to fade into irrelevance around the same time that Fall Out Boy announced their hiatus in 2010. However, with Fall Out Boy doing things better than ever, it’s only right that Wentz attempts to do his label better than ever, too: he’s going to be relaunching Decaydance Records under the new name DCD2 Records.
Pete Wentz relaunces Decaydance Records as DCD2 Records
"I'm saying it's an 'expansion' of what Decaydance was," Wentz told Rolling Stone. “We've always tried to do what Jay Z did with Roc-A-Fella, so maybe this is our RocNation. It's going to be home to some of the past Decaydance artists who are still making music, plus a couple of new artists that represent the next logical step forward." Those past Decaydance artists include Panic! at the Disco, Cobra Starship, and Gym Class Heroes, as well as new comers Lolo and New Politics. Both can be found on Fall Out Boy’s upcoming tour with Paramore this summer.
Calling an album after the name of an estranged wife is certainly weird but it pales in comparison to some of music's most horrific album titles.
In perhaps the most audacious and downright ridiculous move the music business has witnessed in the last few years, singer Robin Thicke has announced his new album will carry the title of Paula, which by some strange coincidence just happens to be the name of his estranged wife- actress Paula Patton.
Thicke and Paula in more happy circumstances.
To say such a public declaration of love is cringe-worthy would be an understatement, it is such a trite attempt at reconciling with his wife that is seems like something straight out of Spinal Tap. You can imagine the album title sitting quite comfortably alongside the likes of Smell The Glove and Shark Sandwich. As if that wasn’t irksome enough, Thicke’s debut single from the album is entitled "Get Her Back” and it sees the ageing crooner positively straining to exude as much heartfelt sincerity as he can before he gives himself a heart attack.
Pete Wentz says Fall Out Boy is writing new music. Here's what we want to see from new songs the most.
Its only been a little over a year since Fall Out Boy went on their crusade to save rock and roll, and the multi-platinum selling pop-rock band is getting ready to continue on that quest: bassist Pete Wentz said the band is currently writing new music. "We're writing. I was just listening to something Patrick had written in the trailer. So we're writing, finishing out the album cycle in South Africa in September," Wentz told Billboard. Whether this new music is going to turn into a proper full-length or an EP, one thing's for certain: Wentz likes the idea of releasing it whenever they want, and having it sound like whatever they want. "I feel like you can just put out whatever and as long as it's authentic to who you are," he continued.

Clearly, the band has been making music however they wanted for quite sometime, even if they weren't together for it. While guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andry Hurley were returning to their metal roots with The Damned Things during the band's four year hiatus, Wentz and vocalist Patrick Stump got their pop on as Wentz formed electronic duo Black Cards and Stump released a 80's-esque Michael Jackson inspired solo album. When the group reformed in early 2013, all of those genres fused together effortlessly to make up Save Rock and Roll -- so where does new music go from here and if we got to pick, what would we want to see in it?

Fall Out Boy celebrate their newest addition, after their guitarist Joe Trohman, has his first child; a daughter named Ruby.
Joe Trohman, the guitarist for world renowned rock band Fall Out Boy, has become a father for the first time. Trohman and his wife, Marie Wortman Goble, have been married since 2011, and welcomed their daughter, Ruby, into the world on 25th April, 2014.
Without wanting to let this happiness and joy go unnoticed by fans, the band have released a picture on their official Twitter page, showing Trohman cradling the brand new bundle of joy, with a caption stating: "Just added a new member to the crew welcome Ruby @trohman #falloutbaby."
The news comes in a year of good news for the band, following a recent announcement from bassist Pete Wentz, when he confirmed that his girlfriend Meagan Camper is pregnant, and he is set to become a father for the second time in February, 2014.

Taylor Swift was without question among the best dressed at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

This year's Leeds Festival held at Bramham Park may have had a super amount of rain, but that didn't stop the headliners from entertaining.
Leeds Festival 2013 may not have brought with it the best weather of the year, with torrential downpours and heavy flooding putting a damper (pardon the pun) on everyone's camping weekend, but the line-up was enough to put a smile on everyone's mud spattered face!
Green Day Headline Leeds Festival 2013
Biffy Clyro drew in a rapturous audience on the Friday and Green Day had a smaller but dedicated audience on Saturday, but that was nothing compared to Eminem's fantastic closing performance which drew the biggest audience of the whole weekend. Other bands had a few surprises up their sleeves, with Fall Out Boy managing to get Foxes up on stage to perform their collaborative track 'Just One Yesterday' (Pete Wentz' favourite song from their new album) and The Lumineers taking crowd participation to a new level by playing in the middle of their audience.

After a few teaser reunions, this seems like it might be the big one.
After an absence spanning nearly two decades, The Replacements are giving performing another go at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago, Denver and Toronto. While the band’s last show was in 1991, they technically haven’t performed together since 2012, when the band got together in the studio to record Songs for Slim, a charity EP to raise money for guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke last year, Rolling Stone reports.
Despite the sad occasion, the reunion apparently felt so good that the band felt they should try the performing thing once again. "After two or three hours, my voice was shot, but we were rocking like murder for a while," vocalist Paul Westerberg told Rolling Stone last fall.
With the summer festivals in full swing, the could hardly have picked a better time for the reunion. The Replacements have been named as headliners for all three legs of Riot Fest. Westerberg and Stinson, sans drummer Chris Mars, will join Dinosaur Jr., Best Coast, Rocket From the Crypt and others on the bill August 24th-25th in Toronto. The Replacements head a lineup that also features Fall Out Boy, Blink-182, the Violent Femmes, Motörhead, Rancid, Blondie and Public Enemy September 13th-15th in Chicago. They'll top a bill including Blink-182, Iggy and the Stooges, Rancid, Public Enemy, Guided By Voices, Flag and the Dismemberment Plan September 21st-22nd in Denver. The full lineup and all other information is available on the official Riot Fest website.

Fall Out Boy back with new video
Pop-punk rockers Fall Out Boy announced their return to the music scene recently, after a 5 year hiatus. Their new single The Phoenix, to be taken off their fifth studio record Save Rock and Roll, has a shiney new video for you all to watch, and you can do that here.
It’s only been three years, but the fervor that greeted Fall Out Boy’s live return has been like they’ve been away a decade or more. Yep, Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley have told that this isn’t a reunion, because they never split up, they just went on hiatus. But from the nature of their last minute intimate shows – including Los Angeles last night (February 7, 2013) – there’s no denying the fans attitude towards this – they’ve been away, and they’ve been away too long.
MTV reports that at the Roxy venue on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, the queue to get in for Fall Out Boy’s show snaked back to the horizon, whilst inside some of the band’s old contemporaries like 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship watched on as their friends made a triumphant return. What Fall Out Boy didn’t provide was much of a clue as to where they were going in the future; the set drew from old classics like ‘Dance, Dance’, ‘Sugar We’re Goin’ Down’ and ‘This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race’ with only one new song offered.
That new song was the comeback single ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark’, which borrows from a sample and certainly suggests that Fall Out Boy aren’t quite the excitable scamps that first came about in the beginning of the last decade, but are still full of energy and vim nonetheless.
Fall Out Boy are back! But they never went away! The American emo rockers have told fans that their return shouldn’t be considered a reunion because they merely went on hiatus. That’s all by the by though, what really matters is that Pete Wentz et al are back with a new tour and a new album, fifth studio LP Save Rock And Roll.
“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music,” FOB said in a statement, reported by MTV. “It’s why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place.” They’re wasting no time in getting back onto the stage either, the group playing an intimate show in Chicago on Monday night (February 11) before heading to New York the night after and Los Angeles on Thursday, February 14 for two more similarly small-sized shows. “This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up,” the band said in Monday’s statement. “We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. The future of Fall Out Boy starts now.”
The group’s initial run brought them huge success, with three albums breaking the top ten of the US Billboard charts, and 2007’s Infinity On High going to number one. The group have also gone three times platinum. Their last album was Folie a Deux, released in 2008, after which they went on hiatus – until now.

Pete Wentz is to make a cameo appearance on the hit US TV show Californication.
The Showtime series stars former X- Files actor David Duchovny as a writer living in Los Angeles.
Fall Out Boy bassist Wentz is reportedly going to play himself in the episode, which is scheduled to air in September, reports NME.
According to Perez Hilton, "Duchovny's character, the troubled writer Hank, will see Pete at a pool party hanging out with the show's resident teen, Mia. Pete will tell Hank how much he enjoyed his book."
Wentz and singer Ashlee Simpson married recently, announcing that they are expecting their first child just weeks afterwards.
Rapper Snoop Dogg recently imparted some of his parenting advice to Wentz when he appeared on the FALL OUT BOY star's show FNTV.
In the comedy sketch, SNOOP DOGG advised Wentz to keep the new baby in the garage, reports Showbiz Spy.
