Fall Out Boy returns with new album, tour
Multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Island Records group Fall Out Boy has finally put an end to years of rumours and speculation, with the official announcement that the band has returned.
They will globally launch their new single My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) today at iTunes.
They commemorated the occasion at the site of the original Comiskey Park, the location of Disco Demolition Night in 1979, as they were burning albums.
The song is the first single from Fall Out Boy’s new album, Save Rock and Roll, which will be released globally on May 6/7, 2013, the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy’s first full length studio album in 2003, Take This To Your Grave.
Pre-orders for the album are at the band’s website.
In conjunction with the news, Fall Out Boy will play three intimate one-night-only club dates for their fans this week, starting tonight in Chicago (Subterranean), tonight in New York City (Webster Hall Studio), and Los Angeles (Roxy) on Thursday night (February 7).
The Save Rock and Roll US tour kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee, at the Rave.
Save Rock and Roll is Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album, and is their first new studio album since Folie Á Deux in December 2008.
Hailing from the Chicago, Fall Out Boy, made up of Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar), and Andy Hurley (drums), have appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone, Spin, Blender, and Alternative Press, among others.
They have performed on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, and many more.
In addition to their Grammy nod, they have won three MTV Video Music Awards.
