Fall Out Boy

AMANDA SCHURR
8 pm., Tuesday June 18 | Sold out.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[POP CHEESE] The Chicago suburbanites of Fall Out Boy rode the early aughts’ emo-punk-pop wave with catchy-if-vanilla hits (“Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down,” “Dance, Dance”) that belied their hardcore roots. After their fourth album, 2008’s Folie a Deux, stalled commercially, frontman Patrick Stump and co. took an indefinite hiatus, spending the next few years in solo projects and, in the case of chief lyricist-bassist Pete Wentz, gossip mags. Fall Out Boy announced its return this February with the release of Save Rock and Roll, a slick, only half-jokingly titled disc of modern hair metal that features cameos by Courtney Love and Elton John. Taylor Swift-approved comeback anthem “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ’Em Up)” is the same serviceable, soulless power pop that’s always made the band a love-’em-or-loathe-’em deal. It’s a shame—there’s smarter songwriting and musicianship here than the processed bombast allows.
