Fall Out Boy *Is* Regrouping for a New Album and a Tour This Year
Just last week, guitarist JOE TROHMAN denied talk that FALL OUT BOY was reuniting this year. He said, "The rumors are totally outta this world! Seriously, it's not going down." Except . . . it is. They're just not calling it a "reunion."
The band released a statement on their website saying, "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."
They unveiled a new song called "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)". (Check it out, here.) It's the first single off their next album, "Save Rock and Roll", which comes out May 7th.
They have a list of upcoming dates that began LAST NIGHT with a show in Chicago. There are a few other dates over the next few months, before they launch a full-on tour in May. (Hit up FallOutBoyRock.com for more info.)
Fall Out Boy went on hiatus more than three years ago, in November of 2009.
