Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz said: "Music videos have consistently been one of the most important pieces of Fall Out Boy. The Young Blood Chronicles may be one of the biggest ones we have ever undertaken- so it makes us feel rad that we are being included in the EMAs - and awesome that we get to bring NYC into the mix with us."
