"This ain't our first rodeo," Fall Out Boy said in a tweet on Wednesday, Feb. 28. "New video for So Much (For) Stardust starring (Jimmy Butler) aka Heat Wentz just dropped."

Butler went viral last year when he donned piercings and black nail polish for the Heat's media day.

"Yeah, yeah, laugh it up," he told a room full of reporters on Oct. 6. "I’m very emotional right now. This is my emo state and I like this. This is me,” Butler said. “This is how I’m feeling as of late."

Earlier that month the athlete caught the attention of the online emo scene by sharing a track by the emo band Hot Mulligan on his Instagram story. Their latest album Why Would I Watch made it onto Q's staff favorites list for 2023.

The band is supporting Fall Out Boy on select dates of their So Much For (2our) Dust trek, which begins tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 28) in Portland. Jimmy Eat World, The Maine, Daisy Grenade, Games We Play and CARR will also serve as openers on select dates.

Fall Out Boy's most recent So Much (for) Stardust was a return to form for the band. Many of the band's old school fans were excited to hear a rock record after Wentz and company recorded several straight up radio pop albums.

Wentz and Butler may look like an odd couple in the music video, but they both come from an athletic background.

The bassist was an all-state soccer player in high school and once had dreams of going pro.

"I played soccer, but I wasn't really a jock," he said during a 2010 episode of MTV's When I Was 17. "It was something I was really passionate about. I feel like I had a magical connection with the ball. I wanted to play professional soccer in Europe."
