Don’t call it a comeback. No, really. Fall Out Boy insists the band never broke-up, but rather took a hiatus that officially ceased on Monday.
“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. It’s why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place,” the band wrote on its official website. “We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.”
With that, the Chicago-rockers promised to “save rock and roll…” with the release of its fifth full-length studio album. Save Rock and Roll will be released worldwide on May 6 and 7. The lead single, an up-tempo sing-a-long called “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” is on iTunes now.
In addition to the new music, FOB returns to the road with a 33-date trek across North America that kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee, WI. The band plays intimate one-night-only shows this week in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles.
