Fall Out Boy Kidnapped And Dismembered In New Video

(Radio.com) Fall Out Boy's upcoming album is titled Save Rock and Roll, but if the music videos for the album's first two singles are any indication, it might be Fall Out Boy itself that needs saving.

Sunday night (March 24), the band released the video for "The Phoenix," the album's second single, and it's a doozy. "The Phoenix" continues the vibe that first single "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" established: grandiosity. Strings and keyboards back the band with a growing intensity as singer/guitarist Patrick Stump lays down a take-no-prisoners vocal.

"I'm gonna change you like a remix / Then I'll raise you like a phoenix," he sings over a flurry of guitars, drums and strings. Like the single before it, "The Phoenix" marks a change in direction musically for the band, straying from its pop-punk roots. But that's the route Fall Out Boy has been planning to follow since first announcing the record: "Obvious and safe doesn't seem that rock and roll to me," said Stump in early February.

The video serves as the prequel to the "Light Em Up" video, which featured what appeared to be the band bound in the back of a van after rapper 2 Chainz and two scantily-clad women set band equipment on fire. Here, Fall Out Boy has come into possessing a briefcase, the contents of which aren't exactly revealed, but are apparently incredibly important (and bright). more on this story
