Since their "From Under The Cork Tree" period and the release of songs like "Dance, Dance" and "Sugar, We're Going Down" I have had quite a fondness of Fall Out Boy and their own brand of Post-Skate-Punk-Come-Indie-Come-Rock-Pop (no that isn't a genre I've completely made up...). At the time I was heavily involved in the heavy metal scene as a musician and so they became a bit of the horrifically coined "Guilty Pleasure" along with early Blink 182 and Sum41's first album and now they are back stronger than ever with what has to be my favourite release to date from this Illinois quartet.
Guitar music has been kind of missed from sorely from the Radio One culture but Fall Out Boy are shoving it back in our faces with their bombastic and high octane single "My Songs Know what you Did in The Dark". Bad song title aside, musically this the most interesting and well produced release of theirs and the vocals are beyond cool from the repetition to the big anthemic chants and whaling guitar-esque falsetto of the chorus.
NME predicted that this is going to be a big year for guitars and if this song is the start of a trend for 2013 I for one will be happy. This song is everything good rock should be. Catchy, driving and most of all, as BIG AS HELL. I will be looking forward to the full album "Save Rock and Roll" release on April 15th 2013.
