AceShowbiz - Fall Out Boy makes their comeback in the music industry with a video for their brand new single, "Young and Menace". The surreal clip, which was released on Thursday, April 27, follows a young girl who escapes from her very suffocating home life to explore the human world.
The nearly-four-minute video begins with the protagonist finding a magazine about family activities. She then heads home to have a dinner with her unicorn-llama parents, but the spouses get into a fight after their daughter shows the mag. Getting irritated by the fight, the girl runs from the house before she ends up hiding in the car trunk.
After riding through the night, the car stops in a town. The girl then walks around the town where no one can understand her language. Towards the end of the trippy clip, she ends up at a Fall Out Boy concert before waking up in her bed to watch her human parents fighting.
"The concept is the idea of a movie like Elf, where he realizes maybe he isn't an elf after all," bassist Pete Wentz says of the video in an official statement. "But ours has less comedic elements and more real world implication. She realizes that maybe she is human after all -- but maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think."
"Young and Menace" will be featured on the rock band's seventh album, "M A N I A". The project serves as the follow-up to 2015's "American Beauty/American Psycho", which features some chart-topping singles like "Centuries" and "Uma Thurman". The forthcoming set will hit the shelves on September 15 and will be followed by a tour that kicks off on October 20 in Cleveland, Ohio.
