Holy shiz, you guys!
Talk about an EFFING SNEAK ATTACK of EPIC porportions! We had no idea this was coming at all!
And now, EVERYTHING has changed…because Fall Out Boy is officially back!
We're talking a BRAND NEW ALBUM, titled Save Rock and Roll, due out on May 7th….AKA the ten year anniversary on the release date of debut album, Take This To Your Grave!
We're talking three intimate concerts, starting TONIGHT at the Subterranean in their hometown of Chicago, tomorrow night at Webster Hall in NYC, Thursday night at the Roxy in El Lay!
We're talking a FULL-BLOWN NORTH AMERICAN TOUR starting May 14th in Milwaukee, with tickets going on-sale on February 8th!
And MOST importantly - and immediately - we're talking a BRAND NEW SINGLE, My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up), to which you can listen along with video accompaniment (above)!
Yeah! We're not entirely sure what 2 Chainz is doing there, either!
But hey! Can't complain, can we?!
The song ROCKS! And they actually sing the title in the lyrics!
Is that a first?! LOLz!
“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. 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…”
- Pete, Patrick, Andy and Joe
YES! YES! YES!
We are SO ready for Rock and Roll to be saved!
Five years was FAR TOO LONG a hiatus, you guys! Don't ever do that to us again!
