After a three-year break, Fall Out Boy is getting back together for a fifth record due out in May.
In 2010, the pop punk band Fall Out Boy had announced they were taking an “indefinite hiatus,” reports People Magazine.
Bassist and primary lyricist Pete Wentz tweeted in November of 2009, “A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old, I don’t plan on either.”
Moreover, singer-guitarist Patrick Stump noted there would be no reunion unless something changed in “my head or my heart- not my wallet.”
However, the band seems to have forgotten these sentiments, and is continuing where they left off.
“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,” the group commented, according to Rolling Stone.
A press release on Monday confirmed the band’s first new single since “Alpha Dog” in 2009 will be “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).” They shot the video at Comiskey Park, in their hometown of Chicago.
Their fifth studio album, Save Rock and Roll is set to be released globally in May.
Fall Out Boy will be playing three intimate club dates for their fans this week: February 4 at Subterranean in Chicago, February 5 at Webster Hall Studio in New York City, and February 7 at The Roxy in Los Angeles.
Their Save Rock and Roll tour will begin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at Rave on May 14, and continue until the end of June when the band winds down in Nashville.
