Fall Out Boy have shared the first track from their upcoming new album M A N I A.
Young and Menace was written and produced by the band and is the first taste of their seventh studio LP, which is due out in September.
Fall Out Boy bassist/ lyricist Pete Wentz says of the first single: “There’s a lyric in the song, ‘trying to send the world a message, I was young and a menace,’ that reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. I didn’t look like anyone there or feel like anyone – I felt like an outsider in my own town. It wasn’t until I discovered punk rock and that community that I realized I did fit in somewhere in this world – with the other people who didn’t fit in.”
