    Im so confused, who are their target market now? This just sounds like a song from Top 40 radio...like this is dangerously close to Maroon 5, right?

    You can tell theyre using outside writing partners from the pop radio industry. I mean, make that money if you can!

    I said this when I first heard this song. This legit sounds like a Shakira song haha. I am all for growing and exploring new sounds as a band but this is really bad and Patrick Stumps "hips don't lie." I will try to give the album a go but this is no bueno.

    Oh gosh, we already did this three weeks ago when the song came out...

    0 for 3 in terms of gaining traction on Top 40 radio which makes me think this album will be a dud commercially. In terms of merit, I like all the songs I've heard and I think the band members are genuinely interested in making these music so I guess that's all that matters. Can't imagine they can do another major North American tour to support this unless it's co-headlining with a popular pop/hip-hop act.
     
  6. This tour's been exceptionally popular without the album.

    I think our definitions of exceptionally popular must vary, unless you were being specific about the album not being out. 3/4ths of the upper level in Denver was curtained off. I found better seats on TM than the ones I got in presale for both the Cleveland and LA shows. I don’t think any individual dates sold out either.

    I mean this in comparison to similar arena tours for bands that FOB has been grouped in with or toured with the past few years. I haven’t seen actual stats or anything, but as a hardcore fan who went to 3 shows, I almost felt a little embarrassed at how many open seats/available tickets were left. Not to mention all-reserved/no GA did a number on the energy level.
