Fall Out Boy announced their new album, M A N I A, last April, and have already released three singles. “Young And Menace” “Champion,” and “The Last Of The Real Ones” have been our official introductions to the new album, but concert-going fans were in for a treat this weekend. While touring for the still-unreleased album, Fall Out Boy surprised fans with a fourth new M A N I A song. “Expensive Mistakes” may only exist in the live realm so far, but it’s the best new song we’ve heard yet.
“Expensive Mistakes” starts with a cheery guitar riff and drum beat. Frontman Patrick Stump glides through some comfortingly emo lyrics with characteristic passion. One of the best lines is the quote, “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color”. With any luck, this will serve as the fourth M A N I A single.

Fall Out Boy’s upcoming album was originally schedule to be out in September. However, only a month before the original release date, they announced that we’ll have to wait until January to hear the record. They simply aren’t done recording the songs yet, but we’ll have plenty to look forward to in the new year.
