Fall Out Boy have shared a third song from their forthcoming sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho. Titled The Kids Aren’t Alright, the song comes alongside official artwork for the album, which is set for release in January 2015.
The Kids Aren’t Alright (below) sees Fall Out Boy bringing their anthemic pop-punk sound back to American Beauty/American Psycho, with huge rises and falls in intensity. The song follows on from the album’s previously released title track and its first single, Centuries.
Taking to Facebook to describe the American Beauty/American Psycho artwork (below), Fall Out Boy have said, “This photo was meant to capture the threshold between the American beauty and the American psycho… what rages on the inside – how we what we all feel is permanent and impermanent all at once.
“We can change but do we really want to?” the band continued. “Activate yourself, protect your dreaminess. or break it – ‘because without the cracks the light couldn’t get out’.”
The group concluded their post with a quote from British muso Malcolm McLaren, which read, “Rock and roll doesn’t necessarily mean a band. It doesn’t mean a singer and it doesn’t mean a lyric, really. It’s that question of trying to be immortal.”
