On the 4th day of Christmas, Brumotions gave to you…

A Fall Out Boy single review

American Alt-rock band Fall Out Boy are back with their newest and interesting release ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’, which is currently AVAILABLE to download!

The track will be featured on and shares it name with the band’s sixth studio album, which is set for release in the UK on January 19th.

‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ (which is being shortened to AB/AP) is an odd track… to say the least, with an even stranger music video – which we can’t help but like!

“We turned left when everyone expected us to turn right” Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz told Radio One’s Zane Lowe after its first airplay, which we completely agree with!

Although their newest track is slightly similar to a number of the group’s other releases, it does see the lads heading towards a harder and heavier rock route.

Though we’re sure we’ll be playing the track on repeat as it’s an incredibly catchy, punk track from the FOB lads.

Making the announcement on Facebook, the band said:

“the moment where a shadow lets you know where the sun was streaming in. the odd place where light and dark meet. there is a threshold. we all can feel it – it is something palpable… the idea that no matter how much an animal is domesticated – there is something wild in it. declawed but we take/make the best monsters. we semi-civilize them. we put bears in suits on tricycles.

“we keep wolves warm from the winter in hen houses. then we wonder why they maul the hearts of what we hold the most dear. but make no mistake you brought them into your house and thought they could become a pet. we have infiltrated you. now we are inside you like a disease. this is a modern love story – coming together and unraveling all at once….”

Which does help to slightly understand this incredibly strange music video released for the track, though it is still confusing and makes less sense to us with each view.

‘AB/AP’ is the perfect track for Fall Out Boy to debut a new punk sound to their audience as it will no doubt be successful!

The group are an incredible talent, who we believe will reach great success with their newest track and we wish them all the best!

Make sure you take a look of the video below:

AB/AP is currently available to purchase!

M.A.D – ‘Shotgun’

With the boyband phenomenon still sweeping the country, there are many young, next generation boybands appearing, wishing to steal the hearts of the teenage population.

Here at Brumotions, we are always on the look out for new music to tell all of you about so you can feast your ears on it, which helped us discover M.A.D, who you can also catch appearing in this weeks Brumotions Playlist of the Week!

M.A.D. for it:  Band members Dan, Michael and Ben.

M.A.D, a trio made up of Dan Lewis from South Wales, Michael Sutthakorn from Northern Ireland and Ben ‘AB’ Pryer from London (Left to Right) – are back with their newest single ‘Shotgun’ after achieving incredible success in the Top 40 chart with their debut single ‘Toyboy’ and their second single ‘Fame & TV’, which were both released and achieved ONLINE!

Shotgun is bubblegum pop at its finest!

The track is likeable with a memorable and upbeat tune, which will leave a smile on your face and is perfect for a younger audience.

However, we can’t help but feel that the song is slightly repetitive and bland in comparison to other songs gracing the charts at the moment. We also notice their newest tune bares a close resemblance to ‘Angel with a Shotgun’ by The Cab.

With that being said, the band have boyish good looks, which combined with their inoffensive lyrics and energetic video with love declarations, leave many girls wishing they could ride shotgun with the band.

M.A.D have already amassed a large online following and are a group to watch out for this year! We are sure they will continue to grow as a band and produce a more mature sound that we are sure everyone will love (including us)!

Shotgun is out NOW! And can be purchased on ITunes!
