Fall Out Boy have an incredibly strong and loyal set of fans, who follow their movements like hawks, so with the cult band announcing a new album after a lengthy break - which most fans mistook as a break up - there's been some excitement.
The band will release their fifth full-length album, Save Rock And Roll, on May 7, while their comeback single My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up), hit iTunes on Monday. "When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music," the band said in a statement announcing the album and tour. "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..."
Some fans couldn't quite grasp the meaning of hiatus back when the band announced an indefinite one, so Pete Wentz had to explain to MTV what was going on. "It's weird because, if you look it up in the dictionary, 'hiatus' is a synonym for 'a break.' We're on a break that doesn't have a definite ending. There's no ending date," he said.
