Watch Fall Out Boy Participate in a Drum-Off

image

Fall Out Boy has just begun their “MONUMENTOUR” Summer tour with Paramore and New Politics this past week, and we have already begun to get some cool videos from it.

Yesterday, video surfaced of FOB covering Queen’s iconic song, “We Are the Champions” and today, video was released of frontman Patrick Stump and drummer Andy Hurley having a major drum-off to the tunes of, get this, Slayer AND Jay-Z.

Quickly, it seems like these kind of drum-offs will be a major staple of Fall Out Boy’s set during this tour, because video of them doing similar antics during their stop in Mansfield, MA and Hartford, CT has already made its way onto the internet.

Check out the video below and if you haven’t already gotten tickets to an upcoming date of the “MONUMENTOUR,” you might want to reconsider that.

Listen to the ‘American Idiot’ Tribute Album Stream

Green Day’s American Idiot officially turns ten this year, alongside many of the album that helped some of us get through those awkward, difficult and often time depressing high school days. In honor of the album’s anniversary, Kerrang! revealed plans to have a tribute album released featuring artists such as You Me At Six, New Politics, 5 Seconds of Summer and many more covering the tracks from the hit album.

The full stream can be heard below as well as which band covered which song from the amazing 2004 record. The stream also features two bonus tracks, a cover of “Welcome to Paradise” and “Basket Case.” Kind of upset “Longview” wasn’t included, but beggars can’t be chooser, we assume.

1. American Idiot – 5 Seconds Of Summer
2. Jesus Of Suburbia – Rise To Remain
3. Holiday – The Blackout
4. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams – Neck Deep
5. Are We The Waiting – You Me At Six

New Politics Post Video for New Single

newpolitics

Great news for fans of New Politics, the band have released a music video for their song, “Tonight You’re Perfect.”

The music video is the second single from 2013’s A Bad Girl in Harlem.

In 2013, they showed no signs of stopping with a year’s worth of touring with Fall Out Boy during their regular Save Rock and Roll tour as well as the arena tour version with Panic! at the Disco.

They stayed on tour with Panic! for their Europe trek last November in support of their new album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die.

But the band are staying busy in 2014, once again heading out on tour with Fall Out Boy as part of their Summer co-headlining Monumnetour Tour 2014 with Paramore.

Check out the new video below.

Fall Out Boy and Paramore Announce “Monumentour 2014”

It’s official all, Fall Out and Paramore are heading out on tour together. The Summer co-headlining tour will begin in mid-June and go all through the Summer until mid-August. Paramore frontwoman, Hayley Williams had the sad task of confirming the tour after some “boneheads” (her words, not ours), leaked the tour information.

The leak came in the form of the announcement video after it was posted on Fall Out Boy’s YouTube page briefly before being taken down, but that didn’t stop some fans from seeing it and spreading the word. The tell-all video can now been seen here.

It’s also been confirmed that Fall Out Boy’s Save Rock and Roll supporting act, New Politics will be playing the role once again. Check out the full tour dates below and see if your town is having some Facebook pre-sales.
