The American rockers Fall Out Boy are officially back after a four-year break and are set to release a new studio album in May. Apparently, the time has come for the band to "plug back in and make some music that matters".
The group has also revealed the first single from the new release named "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" featuring the popular rapper 2Chainz. But that's not all, as the latest statement has also confirmed the new global tour set to take place during February and March.
"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", stated the band.
The latest studio album, "Folie A Deux", was released back in December 2008 debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 chart and was eventually certified gold by the RIAA. During the hiatus, the frontman Patrick Stump has released a solo album "Soul Punk" in 2011, while Guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley have teamed up with Keith Buckley and Josh Newton from Every Time I Die and Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano from Anthrax to form The Damned Things supergroup. The singer has also stated that he will be quitting the music business because of all the "haters" criticizing his music, but this obviously isn't going to happen.
