The Pheonix is the second dosage from Fall Out Boys new material since the return from their 4 year hiatus. With the video for last single, My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up) not featuring the band itself, The Pheonix does, and it starts with an ‘Earlier that week’ to link the two.
The video features a gripping storyline, so much so, that the first time I watched it I completely ignored the song and had to watch it again. Good thing? I don’t know, but it certainly caught my attention.
The video ends on a cliff-hanger, not knowing what’s happened to the 4 guys after being abducted. Again, a clever ploy to make us want to know whether the next video will reveal the next chapter in this story.
Fall Out Boy’s next album, Save Rock And Roll, is out in April.
