FOB return with a brand new sound that is sparking some serious online debate.

Fall Out Boy returned yesterday in big style with the announcement of new album Mania dropping in September, a huge US arena tour and a single entitled 'Young & Menace'.

Serving purple realness.

And as the fans digested the arrival of new FOB, reactions have been, to be kind, pretty mixed.

Some people loved it. 

 

 

 

Like, really loved it. 

But there is a pretty big contingent of people turned off by the group's move into electronic territory.

 

 

 

What the fuck indeed. 

Basically nobody is sitting on the fence about this one. And, given just how different it is from any of their previous material, you can certainly understand why it has provoked such strong reactions. FOB have been developing and changing their sound a great deal over their last three albums but this is the biggest left turn we have seen from them in years. Regardless of whether or not you like it, it is pretty difficult to argue that it sounds like Fall Out Boy. Will the album continue down this route? Or will it be a mix of old and new song styles? We'll find out in September.
