Fall Out Boy has announced that it is ending its nearly four-year hiatus with the release of a new album titled Save Rock And Roll on May 7th. The first single from the set, "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up)," has just been issued with an accompanying video. The band played its hometown of Chicago on Monday night (February 4th) and will also play shows in New York and Los Angeles this week before launching a full-length North American tour on May 14th in Milwaukee.
The group posted a statement saying, "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. 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."
It may actually be the musicians' careers that need saving, since none of their solo projects have really caught fire since the hiatus began in late 2009.
Lead singer Patrick Stump released his solo album Soul Punk in 2011 while bassist Pete Wentz started a new band called Black Cards, neither of which took off in a meaningful way.
Fall Out Boy has released five albums to date, including 2005's breakthrough From Under The Cork Tree, which featured the singles "Sugar, We're Going Down" and "Dance Dance."
The quartet's last record, Folie A Deux, came out in 2008.
