Fall Out Boy

#347 - April 2017

A world exclusive “what’s next” chat with FALL OUT BOY! Our 2017 Guitar Special stars Laura Jane Grace, Frank Iero, Tony Perry, Awsten Knight and others, plus Miss May I, Too Close To Touch and more!

FALL OUT BOY

Remember the terms fans and critics used to paint the enduring Chicago quartet? “Pop-punk.” “Melodic hardcore.” “Emo.” Those debates subsided long ago, but it doesn’t mean Fall Out Boy are kicking back and phoning their next record in. In this world-exclusive cover story, we find the intrepid foursome embracing new spheres of influence and ways of working while continuing to challenge our perceptions of music—and life.

SPECIAL

GIVE ’EM THE AXE! AP’S 2017 GUITAR SPECIAL

Sorry, laptop jockeys: No guitars means there’s no rock to be had. That’s why we had players from PIERCE THE VEIL, FRANK IERO AND THE PATIENCE, SUM 41, NEW FOUND GLORY, WATERPARKS, CODE ORANGE and more discuss their instruments while offering advice to would-be six-stringed heroes. Plus, new models and devices to keep your show on the road!
