From 98 Degrees, NKOTB and Boyz II Men going out on tour together to Justin Timberlake dropping his first single in years to Destiny’s Child performing at the Super Bowl, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of the 1990s comeback. It only make sense for pop punk band Fall Out Boy to join the movement, returning to music over three years after announcing their hiatus. This week the pop punk band announced their plans to release a new album on May 6 and 7, titled Save Rock and Roll.
The news came via a series of tweets from bassist Pete Wentz, which included a link to a blog post explaining how “…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 post also included a new song called My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up). The video contains a cameo from 2 Chainz, who is busy lighting everything on fire, including old Fall Out Boy records. Could this mean a collaboration in the works?
Fall Out Boy are getting back into the swing of things by playing a few intimate shows before going on a full tour starting in May. Canada will get to belt out Sugar We’re Going Down and A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me on May 24 in Toronto, May 25 in Montreal, and June 20 in Vancouver.
