Fall Out Boy, American alternative rock band, has decided on a very interesting move. Inspired by Daft Punk’s Electroma, all of the songs on their most recent album, Save Rock and Roll, are apart of a series called The Young Blood Chronicles. A music video has been shot for every single one of their songs on the album and have been put together to be a larger film if you will. The Young Blood Chronicles consists of eleven parts, with the first four parts of the film released already.  Here is the plot so far:

     [The first “chapter,” the video for “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)”, stars rapper 2 Chainz walking around a dark, wooded campsite torching foliage and records. “The Phoenix” opens with the conclusion of the “My Songs” clip, with the band bound-and-blindfolded in the back of a black van. The story unfolds backwards, with the band discovering a mysterious briefcase that Stump cuffs to his wrist. From there, he is abducted and tortured in a remote location.  The story continues in “Young Volcanoes”, which finds the band being tied down and snorting colored powder. We are also led to believe they eat each other’s organs, but this is never said outright. In “Alone Together” the band is bound in different rooms each being humiliated, while one of the members overpowers his captors and escapes.]
