Fall Out Boy Release New Single; Reveal Album and Tour Plans

The take over, the break’s over.

After a week and a half of speculation, Fall Out Boy have revealed they are in fact planning to make a comeback in 2013. What no one saw coming, however, was just how prepared they were to take on the world of rock once more. Not only did the boys from Chicago announce their return this morning, but they also released a new single and revealed plans for a new album and North American tour later this year.

“My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” marks the official return of Fall Out Boy with a bigger-than-ever sound that picks up right where Folie A Deux left off.

Recording Studio That Saw Dylan And Radiohead Might Soon Be Condos

 

The Church Studios is a storied recording facility in London’s delightfully named Crouch End neighborhood. Housed in a gothic chapel, the studio has hosted sessions for Bob Dylan, Radiohead, and Elvis Costello, amongst others. However, the studio’s days may be numbered.

According to the Evening Standard, current owner and UK pop singer David Gray is looking to divest himself of the property or have most or all of the site converted into “flats.” “David would be delighted to sell the Church Studios,” noted a spokesperson for the singer. “But given the current upheaval in the music business and the repercussions on commercial recording studios, it is only prudent to explore other avenues, including redevelopment.”

Guns N’ Roses Ban Slash T-shirts At Concert

The current line-up of Guns N’ Roses will take the stage later tonight at London’s O2 Arena, finishing up a string of drama-filled UK tour dates. Just make sure you don’t show up in your classic Slash Tee.

NME caught up with a Guns N’ Roses fan who attended last nights show at the O2 Arena, shirtless. That’s right, when 18-year-old James Revell showed up, ticket-in-hand and shirt-on-back, security requested that he remove the offending shirt or he would not be allowed to attend the concert. NME quotes a venue worker at last night’s show as saying, “We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash T-shirt and we are asking anyone who is to remove it and if they refuse they will be turned away.”

Wow. We knew Axl‘s beef with Slash cut pretty deep, just not to the point of enforcing a reverse dress code.

In the words of the surprisingly mature James Revell, “…I think that Axl Rose doesn’t appreciate his fans or anyone for that matter, he needs to grow up and stop acting like a child.”

Music Stars Who Need A Lesson In Technology

OK, so I think we can all agree that getting a closer look into the lives of our favorite celebrities is pretty awesome. Whether or not we choose to admit it, most of us have that one famous person (or maybe more) who keeps us fascinated with every tiny detail of their life. The wonderful world of Twitter has made it incredibly easy to stay up-to-date—no  paparazzi or gossip magazine required. Celebrities simply share what they want to share, and we eat it up. Sometimes they’ll even respond to their followers and answer their questions! It’s all good fun, except when it’s not. It looks like some celebrities, especially musicians, just aren’t ready for the responsibilities of being famous and having all of this technology right at their fingertips.

Most recently, rapper The Game sent the tweet heard ’round the world, causing so much chaos it almost got him in trouble with the law. His Twitter posted a phone number, telling his close to 600,000 followers that they should call it for an internship opportunity. Well, turns out the phone number was for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and they were not happy; rightfully so, considering their phone lines were jammed for a couple of hours. The Game claims that someone hacked his account, but then went off on a rant about the police, saying “Yall can track down a tweet but cant solve murders !”  The department planned to file a complaint but later decided against it after The Game gave a public apology.

M.I.A. is another celeb who recently took to Twitter, but ended up offending her own fans. In the wake of the London riots, she tweeted that she was “going down to the riots to hand out tea and mars bars”. Fans who follow her on the site replied with upset comments, not happy that she was supporting the violence.
