I added falloutboy on snapchat yesterday and they haven't added me back so I can't send Pete snaps :( what do I do?

i don’t think they add people back? at least they never added me back, it’s more so you can see the recent updates

What's up with Ashlee and Pete right now?

nothing they co-parent bronx and that’s it

and honestly if pete hasn’t shared with us then there’s no reason anyone should be asking it’s disrespectful

nostalgic4disaster:

Dear Fall Out Boy fans,

Stop asking about Ashlee Simpson.

Apparently, Patrick at the last meet & greet had to jump out of security to ask who in line asked Pete where she was. It was the second time that day a fan asked and Patrick took a stand.

It’s not easy to make Patrick upset so obviously they’re not happy about the topic of her being brought up.

They’ve both moved on with other people, get over it.

i felt like i wasnt going to address it but i see more and more people taking other people down for not being “true” fans or for being “new fans”. i just wanted to take the time on here to really express that FOB has always tried to embrace an inclusive vibe- we are all part of this thing. all of us were new fans at some time- if you hung out with me in my pre-teen years i would have driven you insane with my ridiculous metaliica fan boying. even just yesterday i had a geeky fan moment with slash….

i think some of this speaks to an influx of new fans- people that may have found their way due to bands like one direction and 5sos- ive met both of these bands- both are full of hardworking, talented, but most importantly nice kids. everyone has to start somewhere- there was a time when our band was on TRL and i remember some of the backlash us and other bands got simply due to being on a video show that teenage america watched… but the most important part of this as it relates to FOB is that the more fans there are and the more bands that are being played on the radio the more we can tour around the world- it keeps the ecosystem that our band exists in thriving. think about that the next time you take a shot at someone for not knowing something or being a “big” enough fan.

that being said its a great and wonderful part of being a human being to have your own opinions- just remember to express them in empathetic ways- everyone has their own unique struggle.

i wanted to include some stuff we really built our stage show for monumentour around in case you are coming so you know some of the backstory to some of the elements.

there are many images of chicago (our hometown) and the idea that it doesnt matter how many times you fail as long as you keep getting up… the intro to our set is something weve been working on for awhile.

image

the floating stage is something that has been kicking around as an idea since the “black clouds” tour- but we finally were able to create a design that we felt was versatile enough to bring out on tour. it is all based upon pyramid design and shapes.

image

speaking of pyramids this was an updated idea of content for arms race. 

image

for stagewear we had our friend dr. romanelli create a lambskin jacket (andys is denim & vegan friendly). which we then had theresa sharpe from best ink tattoo with images from the youngblood chronicles. this process was pretty insane as they are not painted, they are actually tattooed on the leather.

image

the phoenix always had a fighter pilot vibe to me… the content reflects that everything from cockpit to aerial maneuvers.

image

just one yesterday was written with this scene from the modern romeo and juliet in mind so it seemed kind of fitting to fix it into the background of the song live.

image

and finally the encore stage design is a nod to one of our favorite fantasy movies of all time the labyrinth. 

we hope you come out to a show and have a blast. keep an open mind and heart… 

xx

The "thanks pete" is from the AMPAS when the microphone was too tall for Patrick and pete jokingly lifted him. You can watch it on Alternative Press' YouTube channel when they win song of the year I believe. (:

anon was talking about this post not the real thanks pete incident kinda confusing now that i think about it lol

but this is a good thing if anyone hasn’t been on the internet in the past few days and is like WHY IS EVERYONE THANKING PETE and is embarrassed to ask cause you know
