Fall Out Boy Pledge Houston Show Profits To Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort
Fall Out Boy are preparing for the release of their new, seventh studio album, MA N I A, by touring the US and Canada in October and November – and they’ve now announced that their show in Houston will serve as a benefit for the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.
Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25, and has dumped record levels of rain on the state, and into neighbouring Louisiana. At the time of writing, the widespread, unprecedented flooding has led to 38 accounted fatalities in the impacted area, in and around the major city of Houston.
All proceeds from Fall Out Boy’s November 7 show at Houston’s Toyota Centre will be put towards what’s sure to be a massive clean-up effort, once the water subsides. The band tweeted the below, confirming the announcement:
MA N I A – set for release on January 19, 2018 – has so far been previewed by two singles, Young And Menace and Champion. Watch the “visualiser” for the latter, below.
