The song is now Top 15 on the Pop charts after going Top 10 at Modern Rock and has been streamed more than 60 million times between YouTube and Spotify alone. The band most recently performed the track at the 41st Annual People’s Choice Awards.

The album is the follow-up record to the band’s gold-certified fifth studio album Save Rock and Roll, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries upon its April 2012 release. American Beauty/American Psycho is available for pre-order now on the band’s Webstore and iTunes.
