Originally posted in 2008, the demo of ‘Lake Effect Kid’ became one of Fall Out Boy fans’ favorites

July 6, 2018

Do you remember Welcome To The New Administration, Fall Out Boy’s pre-release mixtape of the Folie À Deux era? That’s where we first heard (and fell in love with) the demo version of ‘Lake Effect Kid’. Thanks to bassist Pete Wentz’s intriguing post, we now hope to hear an official revamp of the beloved 2008 track.

Pete Wentz’ promising tweet

What makes us believe the old song is about to get a new version? Easy! Wentz has just tweeted a pic of himself holding a slip of paper that reads “Lake Effect Kid EP: Record and Design” as a to-do list. The step with recording the EP is crossed out on the list, which means we might get the studio recording of ‘Lake Effect Kid’ very soon.

But what would be the other tracks on the EP? Patrick Stump and Co. might want to add some new material onto the record or a re-visited throwback track, because fans would be probably hoping for more than a release of a 2008 track… Let’s keep an eye on what this teasing is all about.

The FOB news doesn’t end at the upcoming EP. In the same Wentz’ to-do list we see the plan to record a music video for ‘Bishops Knife Trick’! The song is featured on their latest album, M A N I A. What do you think the concept or theme of the new video will be?
