Watch Patrick Stump become a power-hungry director in ‘Bishops Knife Trick’

It’s been months since anyone has really heard anything from Fall Out Boy. Between the new album, touring, and their privates lives, it’s safe to assume thing shave been crazy. Well, there’s no need to worry any longer because the quartet have returned.

On Tuesday (July 24), the Chicago-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Bishops Knife Trick.” Unlike many of their previous music videos, this one only features frontman Patrick Stump, a band of llamas, and some crew members. The five-minute clip features Stump playing the role of a power-hungry, rude, micromanaging music video director who is not impressed by the band.

If the premise of the clip sounds and looks oddly familiar, then you would be on to something; it’s a clear ode to their music video for 2007’s “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.”

About four minutes into the clip, two of the llamas get into a massive fight and are swiftly kicked off the soundstage. Instead of calling it a day, Stump goes over to the piano and finishes the song (and then struggles to turn off the camera). For fans of the band, it’s funny to watch Stump, one of the nicest people you could possibly meet, screaming and losing his head over this llama band not listening to him.

“Bishops Knife Trick” is featured on Fall Out boy’s recently released record, MANIA. MANIA was released in January and swiftly earned the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Though the reviews were mostly mixed, MANIA went on to become Fall Out Boy’s fourth number one album.

In support of the album, Fall Out Boy previously announced plans to hit the road for a massive fall time tour.

Every Time I Die confirm new album title, release lead single

A little while back, Every Time I Die announced plans to release a brand new record some time this year. On Tuesday (June 21), the metalcore outfit confirmed the release date and title for their upcoming eighth studio album. The record will be titled Low Teens and is set to be released on Sept. 23 through Epitaph Records. In addition to the album name and release date, the group also debuted the music video for their first single, “The Coin Has a Say”

Joining forces with Rolling Stone, the Buffalo-based band released the fuzzy and gritty clip for the song. “If we were going to do a live video in a small club setting it was going to be like the ones we grew up watching,” frontman Keith Buckley explained to the publication. “The ones that made us fall in love with hardcore in the first place: blurry and blown-out footage you copied from a friend who copied it from a friend who copied it from a friend that is being regularly interrupted by clips of your family at Cedar Point because that was the footage you ‘accidentally’ taped over. Watching a bootleg was like looking out a window at a strange world. We wanted you to have that feeling back.”

Watch the video for “The Coin Has a Say” below.

Low Teens is the follow-up to the band’s 2014 release, From Parts Unknown. In support of the new album, the group will head out on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour for the complete summer trek.
