Just for something a bit different, I have two songs of the week this week. The first is My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up), the debut single from Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album Save Rock and Roll which was released in April this year. Check it out:

The second song of the week is also by Fall Out Boy and is the second single from Save Rock and Roll. This one is called The Phoenix. I felt obligated to share both of these videos with you because they follow on from each other – apparently all of the videos from this album will do the same. If you watched the first one, you have to watch this:

Fall Out Boy – consisting of Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley – formed in 2001 and released their first studio album Take This To Your Grave in 2003. (Just for a little side note, this album celebrated its 10th anniversary this week – pretty awesome stuff.) The album won several awards, achieved double platinum status and featured top ten singles Sugar We’re Goin’ Down and Dance, Dance. The band followed this success with the release of From Under the Cork Tree in 2005, Infinity on High in 2007 and Folie a Deux in 2008. In late 2009, they announced an indefinite hiatus, leaving fans worldwide wondering if they would ever hear from Fall Out Boy again.

Fast forward four years to February 4, 2013 and Fall Out Boy announced that they were back! I am yet to pick up a copy of Save Rock and Roll but from what I have heard so far, their new sound is fresh and very different to the Fall Out Boy of old – in a good way. I can’t wait to give it a good listen through and, of course, here’s hoping they make the trek down under again soon!
