Fall Out Boy have unveiled a “love letter to Chicago” in the form of a brand-new Lake Effect Kid EP, as well as a brilliant new video featuring a ton of old-school footage.
Ahead of their huge hometown show at Wrigley Field in September, the foursome have paid tribute to their city with new music, plus an incredible-sounding new M A N I A Experience – read all about it in the band’s statement below:
“Sixteen days until we’re back to the city we grew up in, playing the biggest headline show we’ve ever played before in Chicago. Still so unreal that we’re playing Wrigley Field on September 8. Here’s a vid with a glimpse at all the madness throughout the years.
“Go get your tickets to the show so we can continue getting lost in this crazy dream with you
“We decided to start the party early by opening up the M A N I A Experience before the show starts on Saturday. We teamed up with so many incredible artists to help bring the album to life in a completely different lens, so get your cameras ready. There will be 12 different spaces for you to walk through (everything from a giant purple wave, to a room with music boxes filled with unreleased remixes and covers, and more). Frosty and Royal Tea will be there, in the fur, ready for some photo ops. Also gonna have a pop up shop with limited edition merch specific to the experience and Wrigley, giveaways & other fun along the way. Who knows what could happen.
“The M A N I A Experience will be open on September 8 and 9. Tickets will be free and you can RSVP starting on Tuesday, but more info coming soon.
“The M A N I A Tour part 2 starts next week in Long Island, see your faces soon.”
