Sugar(plum) We're Going Down

Fall Out Boy will be joining Panic! at a special Christmas concert next month, on December 10th, where they will play alongside rapper G-Eazy and Dj Cash Cash at the 'Pandora Holiday' event at Pier 36 Basketball City in NYC. 

If you can't make it out to New York, you can still watch the whole gig online via livestream. 

Sounds pretty fun already right? But FOB have added a little something extra to sweeten the deal - a brand new album.

To promote the show, Fall Out Boy will drop an exclusive mixtape on December 2nd featuring their favourite bands of the moment and (presumably) a sneak peek at some new material from the boys themselves. Sadly, that's all we know about the album at this point but we can probably expect some material from their buddies and gig mates Panic! as well as some other Fueled By Ramen affiliated acts and Pete's current faves New Politics.

Last time FOB dropped a short-form release it was for their punk roots ep 'PAX AM Days', a pretty solid stopgap between 'Save Rock And Roll' and 'AB/AP'.

But what we are really hoping for is a Christmas theme on the tape. Come on - it's a christmas concert! May as well stick to the theme. 'Tis the season! 

Plus FOB have dipped their toe into Christmas music a couple of times already with 'Yule Shoot Your Eye Out' and this awesome version of a 'Nightmare Before Christmas' Classic: 

Anyway, whatever they come up with, the point is....a new FOB release is on it's way!
