Live Review: Fall Out Boy + Twin Atlantic + Emily's Army - UNSW Roundhouse, Sydney (24.02.15)

Leaving home for Fall Out Boy headlining Soundwave sidewave, I felt a little nostalgic. Firstly, Fall Out Boy were the soundtrack to my pre-pubescent years - the end of primary school and the beginning of high school. Secondly, the first live band I ever saw, Brand New was touring on Soundwave when I saw them. Little did I know that in the hour it took me to travel to the show at UNSW’s Roundhouse, I’d also travel back in time.

Festival Review: Soundwave Festival Adelaide (Day Two) - Bonython Park (22.02.15)

Oh man, Soundwave Day Two just kicked Soundwave Day One right in it's 40 degree face. Don't get me wrong, Saturday was fun, it was a good time, but man. Sunday just knocked it right out of the park.

Live Review: Fall Out Boy - Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney (25.10.13)

Fall Out Boy were once a punk band and they are sure as hell not ready to let us forget that. This year's ferocious, Ryan Adams produced Pax Am Days served as a reminder to those that scoff and write them off as a pop act, that there is still some ferocity left over after all those years in the spotlight.

Live Review: Fall Out Boy + British India - Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Adelaide (22.10.13)

When I was something like fifteen years old, I flew to Brisbane to stay with my aunt and uncle to see Fall Out Boy. This was like, 2006-2007, I think, before Infinity on High. All I remember about that show, was that I ended up getting so crushed at the front of the stage that I had to get crowd surfed out and was stuck in the first aid tent for "Sugar We're Going Down", which made me so frustrated I wanted to cry. I really, really loved Fall Out Boy then – something which I think I've been trying to bury under heavy layers of irony and nostalgia for the last five years.

Fall Out Boy bring their "Save Rock and Roll" tour to Australia. A fantastic show full of energy and great rock and roll. Our photographer John Goodridge brings us these photos from the pit.

Fall Out Boy are returning to Australia this year, perhaps sooner than some fans had thought, with a run of dates locked in for October. It will be the band's first shows in the country to follow on from their intimate shows that took place earlier in the year.

Album Review - Fall Out Boy - Save Rock And Roll (2013)

So Fall Out Boy aren't poppy-soft rock band we all listened to after a break-up in 2006 anymore. We all know that, right? They haven't been since Folie à Duex, possibly even Infinity On High if you listen close. Am I sad about that? Yeah, of course. I didn't have a complete set of Fall Out Boy action figures when I was thirteen (yes, those actually existed, and I actually had them, what the hell...) because I thought From Under The Cork Tree was 'just okay'. But they're doing the whole radio-friendly, arena-rock-meets-hip-hop-at-an-eighties-night thing now, and it's no more apparent than on Save Rock And Roll. But does it work?

Live Review: Fall Out Boy - Metro Theatre (25.03.13)

Fall Out Boy’s hiatus might have only lasted four years, but it was swarming with rumours: was it a permanent break? Or would they be back next week? When their official return was announced earlier this year, I assumed it was a joke. A few weeks later, when I turned up to the Metro Theatre an hour before doors and saw the huge crowd that had already formed, I was still convincing myself it was real. And then the boys appeared onstage, and ripped into their first song…
