Some bands announce a new tour with a basic, to-the-point press release that lays out the dates to be played and nothing more. Fall Out Boy does things a little differently.

In a video released yesterday (March 28), a myriad of snippets from other videos are used to announce the tour. Included: Gene Simmons of Kiss, Bill Clinton, Peter Griffin of Family Guy, John F. Kennedy, The Joker (Heath Ledger’s version), Conan O’Brien and many more.

“We are proud to announce the Save Rock and Roll Tour, coming this September to a city near you,” the spliced-together clips spell out. “Tickets on sale April 5 and 6.”

The video notes that the September tour will be the “last chance” to see Fall Out Boy in 2013. The band is already in the middle of a spring and summer tour that includes dates in North America, Europe and Asia, and will remain in the United States through June 30 before leaving the country and coming back for the first date, in Uncasville, Conn. on Sept. 5.

Save Rock and Roll is out April 7, the first album of new material from the pop-punkers since 2008’s Folie Á Deux. Earlier this week, Fall Out Boy revealed the video for its second single, “The Phoenix,” in which frontman Patrick Stump is dismembered and his bandmates kidnapped.
