We just got back from Los Angeles after a thrilling shoot for ESPN’s coverage of the College Football Playoffs & Championship. We had the killer opportunity to film with the band Fall Out Boy, a critically acclaimed band that has been around for years and still sells multi-platinum records. From the minute we touched-down in LA and started building the set until we flattened tires on the way to LAX – the action was ferocious.
After their return from hiatus in 2013, the band is back and hotter than ever. Fall Out Boy just released their new album Centuries – and the song, which is the title track from the band’s forthcoming album, will be featured during playoff games and studio telecasts and during on-air promotions throughout the season.
You’ll also hear the song during highlight packages and in & out of commercial breaks during the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day bowl game triple-headers. The “New Year’s Six” will showcase the playoff semifinals, four additional premier top-level bowls and the first-ever College Football National Championship on January 12.
The song will also be a central part of the regular-season marketing efforts to promote the top college football match-ups across ESPN’s network each week. ESPN began using an instrumental version of “Centuries” on August 25 in advance of the opening weekend.
While a preview of the video was released last weekend on ESPN, the full version won’t air until December and won’t play during actual games until January.
