A popular pop-punk band from the 2000s has recently decided to make a return to the music industry after being out of the spotlight for more than five years.
Fall Out Boy announced via their Twitter and Facebook accounts early Monday morning they would be making a comeback to the music industry with the release of a new single, a brand new album and a brand new tour across America to support the album.
The Wilmette, Ill. four-piece released a new music video to go along with their new single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up),” which features an appearance by Grammy nominated rap artist 2 Chainz.
Although rumors of the bands reunion have been announced via the Internet sporadically since August of 2012, the band fervently denied any possibility of the band ever getting back together until they announced the news on Feb. 4 of this year.
The new album, which will be titled “Save Rock and Roll” is slated to release on May 6, and the Save Rock and Roll Tour to support the new album will go from May 14 to June 30.
The tour will cover most of the United States, from the East Coast to the West Coast, and also two dates in the U.K. in August. Tickets for the early dates have already sold out, but tickets for the two closest dates to Jonesboro, St. Louis on June 28 and Nashville on June 30, can be purchased starting Feb. 8 online at falloutboyrock.com.
Pre-order packages for the new album can also be purchased on the band’s website and include four different package options.
The packages options include a physical copy of the new album, a vinyl version of the album, a black and white poster of the band, new T-shirt, hoodie and snapback hat designs, and for the diehard FOB fan a package that includes everything in the other packages plus an exclusive custom jacket limited to 2,000 people.
“My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” is currently available for purchase on iTunes for $1.29.
