Fall Out Boy Back in Action

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Fall Out Boy has been busy since announcing their reunion last month. Most recently, they performed their new song "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)" live with 2 Chainz at the NBA All-Star Game Slam Dunk Contest on Feb. 17.

In the weeks leading up to their reconciliation, fans began expecting something was in the works when different media outlets leaked signs of upcoming performances and new music.

Since coming back together on Feb. 4, the band has announced a tour that begins on May 14 in Milwaukee, highlighting their new album titled "Save Rock and Roll". They completed the album on Feb. 18, according to Alternative Press. It was originally set to be released May 7, but has been moved up to come out on April 15/16.

"So when we got this all rolling we didn’t expect it to be so crazy. But we weren’t kidding when we said we had the album done—so why wait?" the band said on their Tumblr. "It means the world to us the way you have welcomed us back. 'Save Rock and Roll' now out early, April 15/16 worldwide."

FOB has come back strong since reuniting, performing their new song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Feb. 13.

In addition to these performances of the single and announcing a new album and tour, the band has also booked a headlining spot on the first night of the Skate and Surf Festival on May 18 and 19 in New Jersey.

Needless to say, over the past month the band is back in full force, ready to leave the hiatus in the past and continue making music for all of the loyal FOB fans of the world.
