After over a three year hiatus, Fall Out Boy has announced that they have a new album, as well as a new tour coming.
The news comes days after bassist Pete Wentz told the Chicago Tribune, “don’t hold your breath that it’s happening.”
Their new album, which will be released in early May, will be titled “Save Rock and Roll,” and will indeed save rock and roll. Their first single off the album, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) features rapper 2 Chainz and has thus far gotten quite the approval from FOB fans.
One girl on YouTube said she couldn’t wait to hear the rest of their album.
Another says “This song is way better than all of folie a deux…this is amazing and this album is going to be amazing.
While all members of the band have gone their separate ways over the years- guitarrast Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley released a heavy metal album and singer Patrick Stump released his first solo album- Wentz says the positive responses feel nice and unexpected.
The band is scheduled for worldwide intimate performances now through late March, but the “Save Rock and Roll” tour will kick off May 14th in Milwaukee.
Tickets go on sale February 8th, and sugar we’re goin’ down swingin’.
