Fall Out Boy Plan 2013 Album and Tour
Like other recently reuniting bands, Fall Out Boy claim they never really quit. Instead, they took a break, which resulted in a five-year gap between albums. But although members of this seminal ‘00s emo band went their separate ways and branched out into other projects, they started working together and now have both an album and tour ready for 2013.
Speaking about their coming projects, the band said in a statement: “This isn't a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us.”
First on the agenda is the album, titled Save Rock and Roll. Scheduled to hit stores on May 7, the release coincides with the 10-year anniversary of their debut, Take This To Your Grave. The group last released an album in 2008.
Just days after the album hits stores, the four-piece begins their supporting tour, the Save Rock and Roll Tour. Dates begin on May 14 and last through June 30.
During the past year, speculation of a breakup circulated, although none of Fall Out Boy’s members confirmed otherwise. However, the group’s two most prominent members went off onto other projects. Frontman and guitarist Patrick Stump put out a solo album, while Pete Wentz, the group’s bass player and songwriter, began an electro-influenced band called Black Cards.
For a taste of their new sound, Fall Out Boy put out “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark.” Listen to the band perform the track live:
