Fall Out Boy have announced they will donate the proceeds of their November 7 show in Houston to the Hurricane Harvey victims

Fall Out Boy will donate proceeds from their Houston show to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The 'Uma Thurman' hitmakers have pledged the sum from the Houston leg of their 'Mania Tour' on November 7 via their Fall Out Boy Fund after the tropical storm wreaked havoc in parts of Texas, killing 31 people and destroying or damaging 50,000 homes.

A series of messages on the group's official Twitter account read: "Houston, our hearts are with you

"All proceeds from our 11/7 show @ the Toyota Center will benefit Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. (sic)"

The US rockers - made up of Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman, Pete Wentz and Andy Hurley - are due to play at the city's Toyota Center on November 7 with support from Jaden Smith and Blackbear.

Tickets for the gig range from $70.50 to $30.50.

Fall Out Boy's 'Mania Tour' was originally due to coincide with the release of their seventh studio album of the same name but they have since pushed the record back from September 15, 2017, to January 19, 2018.

Patrick confirmed the news on his Twitter account earlier this month.

He wrote: "I know we're supposed to come up with some really exciting story to spin in pull-quotes about how the studio exploded and I ran in to save Pete's bass or something. Or like aliens stole the master tapes. That would be fun for sure but the truth is, we just want the record to be better than we can make it in the next couple of weeks and it will require a little more time.

"Thanks for understanding and sorry to keep everybody waiting."
