Patrick Stump wrote a blog reflecting on the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy's Take This to Your Grave.

Today is Patrick Stump's (Fall Out Boy) 29th birthday. Leave him some love in the replies or give him a shout on Twitter. Don't forget to pick up the band's new album, Save Rock and Roll if you haven't already.

Patrick Stump and Panic at the Disco have both posted links to a live video chat and are saying there will soon be a "big announcement." I warn you that the comments on that chat module are out-of-fucking-control. We'll update this post when we figure out what the hell is going on.
