Fall Out Boy is up to something.
On Friday morning (April 21), the band sent out a rather ambiguous tweet, asking fans to “please silence your cell phones at 11 a.m. CST.” A little later, they Instagrammed a list of addresses, all leading to movie theaters in their home base of Chicago. And lo and behold, those who made it to those theaters got a little something extra along with The Fate of the Furious, Boss Baby, etc.
Check out the video below:

The video begins innocuously enough with the words “Mania Beach Resorts” and generic shots of palm trees and the ocean, then ends with “FALL OUT BOY 4.28.17,” to a chorus of screams from the audience.
Fall Out Boy’s last album, American Beauty/American Psycho, was released back in January 2015. Does this mean new music is on the horizon? The same month as new Paramore music? Either way, it seems like we’ll know by approximately this time next week.
