Fall Out Boy's M A N I A debuted last Friday, and it's currently in a tight race for No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
As the music source reports, M A N I A is in a tight race with The Greatest Showman, with both expected to earn around 105,000 to 110,000 equivalent album units this week, ending Jan. 25.
Plus, as Billboard explains, if M A N I A does end up hitting No. 1, it will mark the band's fourth chart-topping album, following American Beauty/American Psycho (2015), Save Rock And Roll (2013) and Infinity On High (2007).
Our fingers are crossed!
When talking about their new album for issue 347, Patrick Stump says this album is going to be different than anything they’ve done before.
“This [record] is the most off-script we’ve gone,” Stump tells AP for the very first story on their new album. “I want to try to invent something, because life’s too short.”
Plus, the band recently announced their “Mania” tour, bringing Machine Gun Kelly along for the ride, with a bunch of other favorites for select dates: Gym Class Heroes, Every Time I Die, Against The Current, State Champs, L.I.F.T. and nothing, nowhere. (Plus Rise Against for their special hometown show at Wrigley Field.)
