Fall Out Boy Return to Form On New Single

Fall Out Boy's new single and the announcement of their new album in February. Save Rock and Roll was due out on May 6 before it got pushed up to April 16. This was due to the overwhelming popularity of their first single, the soulful, electrorock "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)." The single was great and while it was a good song and would have fit nicely on an Adam Lambert album, it wasn't the classic pop-punk of their older music.
On March 24 the and released the promo single "The Phoenix." The song for one thing is back to the classic Fall Out Boy sound. The song mixes in their previous albums with the electro sound of their previous single.
The song is a catchy rocker with lyrics about rising up like a phoenix. We are the jack-o-lanterns in July/ Setting fire to the sky," Front man Patrick Stump sings during the first verse. While some of the lyrics may be a little cheesy ("Put on your war paint.") the song is still great.
This song is like classic Fall Out Boy with a new twist. Hopefully this song is a sign of what is to come with the new album. Save Rock and Roll is in stores April 16.
