The day that Fall Out Boy’s loyal fans have been waiting for is upon us, the band have officially announced that they are back together and have scheduled their next album for release this May.
The album, to be titled Save Rock & Roll, is the follow up to 2008’s Folie à Deux and will be available worldwide from May 6. Despite very little media attention as of yet, the first single to be released from the album is already available on iTunes and is titled Our Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).
The announcement was made via the band’s website and included a message from all four of the band’s original members, namely Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley:
“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. Its why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place. This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.
The future of Fall Out Boy starts now.
Save rock and roll…”
During the band’s hiatus each member has been busy working on their own projects and it is as yet unclear what the future holds for these projects.
