Fall Out Boy Announces New Album and Tour (Yes, For Real)

It’s true!  There’s even a single to prove it!  After denying it over and over, Fall Out Boy has officially announced their return to the stage and our headphones.  Bassist Pete Wentz even told us “…don’t hold your breath” only two days ago.  It’s a good thing that we are a huge bunch of skeptics, because “Save Rock and Roll,” the band’s first album since 2008, will be released on May 7th.  Too long to wait?  Don’t fret; the band starts playing shows again starting…TONIGHT!  That first show is, of course, already sold out, but there are plenty more on the way.

Along with all of these announcements, the band has made this statement:

when we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. its why we started fall out boy in the first place. this isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. we needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.

the future of fall out boy starts now.

save rock and roll…

The first single from the new album, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) [2 Chainz Version],” is on iTunes for download.  The album is available for pre-order here.  What do you think of the song?  Are you planning on going to any of the shows?  Let us know!
