Fall Out Boy reuniting with new single, album and tour

Fall Out Boy unveiled plans for a new album and world tour on Monday, three years after the pop punk band’s four members announced a hiatus to pursue solo projects.
“This isn’t a reunion” – the band said on its website – “because we never broke up.”
The new album, “Save Rock and Roll,” will be available worldwide on May 6-7. A tour kicks off Monday night in Chicago.
A new song, “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up),” is available on iTunes.
“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music” – the band’s website statement said. “We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. The future of Fall Out Boy starts now.”

Fall Out Boy.

Fall Out Boy – singer-guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley – is scheduled to release “Save Rock and Roll” on May 7; it will be the band’s first studio disc since “Folie a Deux” in 2008. The album’s lead single, “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up),” was released to iTunes on Monday and is available to stream via YouTube below.
On May 14, the group – which after forming in 2001 went on to platinum sales and a nomination for the new artist Grammy Award – is to begin a six-week tour in Milwaukee. First, though, it’ll return to the stage this week with three small-scale club gigs: Monday night in Fall Out Boy’s hometown of Chicago, Tuesday in New York and Thursday at L.A.’s Roxy. (Tickets for the Roxy show appeared to be sold out early Monday afternoon.) The band is set to return to L.A. for a concert at the Wiltern on June 13.
During their time apart, Fall Out Boy’s members pursued a variety of side projects. Wentz led the electronic outfit Black Cards, while Trohman and Hurley played with the Damned Things, a heavy-metal supergroup also featuring members of Anthrax and Every Time I Die. Most promisingly, Stump released an excellent solo album, 2011′s “Soul Punk,” that nonetheless sank without a trace.


“My Songs” is the first single from Fall Out Boy’s forthcoming fifth studio record, Save Rock and Roll, out May 7th. The record also marks the 10th anniversary of the band’s debut full length, Take This to Your Grave. It will be their first LP since 2008′s Folie a Deux. During their hiatus, the musicians have focused on solo project. Patrick Stump released his solo debut, Soul Punk, in Oct. 2011, and Pete Wentz has kept busy with his electropop project Black Cards.
Fall Out Boy have also set a tour for this May that they’ll preview with a series of special shows this week – They’ll play Subterranean in Chicago tonight, Webster Hall in New York tomorrow and Los Angeles’ Roxy on Thursday. Fall Out Boy will kick off the Save Rock and Roll tour on May 14th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Full tour dates are below. For more information, visit Fall Out Boy’s website.
