So, it turns out that "Bloom" was an idea that the band thought of at the end of their recent "Wintour" tour. It's an inspirational project, helping fans with their self esteem, self confidence and inspiring those in need.
"We wanted to do something that was kind of compelling and experiential where there was stuff to wear and stuff to look at and stuff to experience but most importantly I wanted to tell a narrative that sometimes the hard shit you go through makes you stronger and carves you into somebody stronger."Pete Wentz
He continued: "And you guys inspire us and so we wanted to do something that was inspiring and uplifting and hopefully resonates."
The band have designed a brand new live show for the project and the short film will be making its way to our screens real soon. The visuals already look mind-blowing.
