After vigorously denying a reunion just the other week, Fall Out Boy turned the tables today by announcing that they'll unleash a new album, Save Rock and Roll, on May 7. The release date for the fifth album marks the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy's first full length work, Take This To Your Grave. The Chicago-based band already is offering a new single, "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)," via iTunes.
In conjunction with the news, Fall Out Boy will play three intimate club dates this week, starting tonight in Chicago (at Subterranean), tomorrow night in New York City (Webster Hall Studio), and Thursday in Los Angeles (The Roxy). The Save Rock And Roll U.S. tour kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee and is scheduled to run through June 30 in Nashville. Tickets will go on sale February 8 and 9.
"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," reads a message posted on the band's website. "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."
