Pop punk band Fall Out Boy drops a music video for their fourth single "Alone Together", likewise the fourth of eleven videos they are set to release for each of the tracks in their comeback LP "Save Rock and Roll", which is also their fifth studio album. The quartet continues to be manhandled in the latest installment in their ongoing Young Blood Chronicles series.
The four-minute-plus visuals continues the violence portrayed in previously-released videos for "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)", "The Phoenix" and "Young Volcanoes". Frontman Patrick Stump finds himself strapped onto an electric chair while bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley are held tight in straitjackets in separate locations, being tortured by their female captors.
Similar to the dream-like sequence in "Young Volcanoes" video, the torture suddenly turns to pleasure as Wentz's tormentor strips off his straitjacket and plants a kiss on him. But the beaten and bruised Wentz knows better than to be tempted and kills her with her own pirate's hook before dashing off to save his band mates.
As the video reaches its end, the four men are hurriedly taken out to the back of a black van with sacks covering their faces and arms tied behind their backs, en route to another location where they await more cruelty and agony, setting up the scenario for the fifth "Save Rock and Roll" track and video combo.
