Fall Out Boy is heading out on their M A N I A Tour this fall and they have done a lot to get fans excited. One of the fun promotional efforts was taking their 2008 demo Lake Effect Kid and releasing a new EP based on that work.
The Lake Effect Kid EP finally hit at midnight last night.
Back in 2008, Fall Out Boy released an EP called Welcome to the New Administration which was in support of their fourth studio release Folie a Deux. It was a mixtape with recordings from a variety of bands, including Panic! at the Disco, Ludacris and Fall Out Boy. The fourth track was titled "Lake Effect Kid (demo)" by Fall Out Boy.
In 2013, Fall Out Boy resurrected that song in live sets as part of their deep cuts. After releasing Mania, Pete Wentz said that the band would release a new EP this year based on the "Lake Effect Kid (demo)" track and that has finally arrived.
According to the band, Lake Effect Kid is a celebration of the band's "biggest homecoming yet," which is their first-ever stadium headlining tour, which includes a concert at Wrigley Field in the band's hometown of Chicago.
Lake Effect Kid has three tracks: "Lake Effect Kid," "City in a Garden" and "Super Fade."
