Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz has just teased out some clues about a soon-to-be revealed single over social media—and the resulting speculation could be never-ending.
The Chicago pop punk outfit has already released one song, “Young and Menace,” (SEE BELOW) from their upcoming album M A N I A. And on Monday (June 5), Wentz, the group’s bassist, lyricist and backing vocalist, offered some hints via Instagram about a new song that should be out near the end of this month. His post tied the single to a classic kid’s fantasy movie from the 80s:
“This one really reminds me of this moment in ‘the never-ending story.’ It always stuck out to me as a kid- first they’re like ‘wait you’re just a kid lol we need a warrior’ then they’re like ‘ok you’ll do i guess you’ll do’ and then ‘no one can help you and if you don’t do this our entire world dies, so no pressure’. (Shout out to the face Atreyu makes after the guy is like ‘our whole world will be destroyed’). No one believes but at the same time we all need to believe in you. end of the month can’t come soon enough ♥ this one is for the kid warriors out there hunting the purple buffalo…”
The NeverEnding Story tells the story of a young boy who reads a book about a brave warrior named Atreyu who’s dedicated to stopping a dark force called the Nothing from destroying his world—and ends with an intriguing twist.
M A N I A is scheduled to drop on September 15. Fall Out Boy will kick off a U.S. tour in support of the new album with a show in Cleveland, Ohio on Oct. 20.
