Published Nov 07, 2008From hyping it with a mixtape to recently earning the world record for most interviews in a 24-hour period, Chicago emo punk heart throbs Fall Out Boy have taken some unorthodox routes in the promotion of their upcoming third album, Folie A Deux. Now, the band are running a contest where unsigned bands can win an opening slot at each show on Fall Out Boys upcoming American tour.
Here are the details: fans submit a MySpace page of their band here, and then Fall Out Boy choose a winner to open for them in each city on their upcoming tour. Though no Canadian dates are included, this model will likely be a success and hopefully pan out to when they do announce some Canadian shows.
Folie A Deux was originally scheduled to hit shelves this week but has been pushed back to a December 16 release date.
Fall Out Boys tour dates:
11/6 Allston, MA Harpers Ferry
11/7 Philadelphia, PA Northstar
12/4 Seattle, WA Paramount Theater
12/6 Denver, CO Ogden Theatre
12/11 Del Ray Beach, FL City Limits
12/12 Orlando, FL House of Blues
