The members of Fall Out Boy have announced they are getting back together and are working on a brand new studio album and a reunion tour.
The band went on “indefinite hiatus” back in 2009. In an interview at the time, bassist Pete Wentz clarified and said the group just needed a break. He described the situation as “decompressing,” because he felt the term “hiatus” had negative connotations, according to MTV.
During their “decompression,” the band members began work on solo projects. Lead vocalist Patrick Stump released his solo album Soul Punk in 2011, and Pete Wentz started an electropop project titled Black Cards.
Rolling Stone reports the group’s first new single is titled “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)," which features the signature Fall Out Boy sound.
Their new album is set to drop May 7 and will be titled Save Rock and Roll/, and the tour will begin May 14 in Chicago and continue throughout North America, ending in Nashville on June 20.. Tour dates can be found on Fall Out Boy’s official website.
