After speculation of a Fall Out Boy reunion, it has today been confirmed – a huge tour has been announced alongside a new single and album. The band posted this message on their website this afternoon:

“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. It’s why we started fall out boy in the first place. This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. the future of fall out boy starts now. Save rock and roll…”

Their new album, ‘Save Rock And Roll’, will be released May 6th 2013. The ‘Dance, Dance’ band will be performing in London on February 25th at the Underworld, Camden.

Streetfight Silence

Streetfight Silence
‘Cutting Strings’

[Angry Badger Records]

On first listen Streetfight Silence’s debut seems slightly average, not exactly an album to shout about. But in fact this record is one of those that slowly but surely reels you in with the catchiest of choruses and hook laden tracks.

‘Low’, ‘Find Me’ and ‘White Flags’ are textbook pop-punk. Think back to early You Me At Six and Fall Out Boy, back when their music had grittier riffs yet still a strong ear for melody. Streetfight Silence have their own melodic genius in Russ Merry whose vocals are exquisite. Merry hosts a range that even idols Josh Franceschi and Patrick Stump would be proud of.

Surprisingly the stand out track from Cutting Strings is ‘6th November’ which showcases the bands emotional integrity through beautiful acoustic guitar work and heart felt lyrics. A song that will certainly appeal to many a City & Colour fan. ‘Pieces’ closes the album in a dramatic style culminating a successful first record for the young band.

A greater punch in the production department would make ‘Cutting Stings‘ a true force to be reckoned with. Hearing these tracks in a live environment is sure to give them the extra beef they deserve and inspire many a sing-along.
