Patrick Stump broke the news on Twitter last night (August 3rd), explaining why FOB fans will be waiting a little bit longer to get their hands on 'MANIA'.

Fall Out Boy announced last night (August 3rd) that their upcoming seventh studio album MANIA will be delayed until January 19th 2018.

Lead singer Patrick Stump posted a very honest and heartfelt statement on his Twitter page explaining why the band had decided to push back the planned September release of the record.

There had been rumours earlier this week that a date change may be imminent when certain fans received emails stating that their pre-ordered merch bundles would not arrive until January. The band's previously announced US and Australian tour dates, which kick off this October, will go ahead as planned.

So, yeah, as a FOB fan, this is obviously pretty dissappointing as we loved the singles (particularly 'Champion') and were looking forward to getting a full album in a couple of weeks time. But, we can understand that they want to make sure they put out a high quality record without compromise or rushing so we are certain that MANIA will be worth the wait in the end.

Fans on social media generally felt the same way...once they'd got over the initial shock of course.

Here's a handful of our favourite reactions we've seen online so far:
