Fall Out Boy Fall Back In! Emo Rockers Reunite For Fifth Album

Fall Out Boy are back! But they never went away! The American emo rockers have told fans that their return shouldn’t be considered a reunion because they merely went on hiatus. That’s all by the by though, what really matters is that Pete Wentz et al are back with a new tour and a new album, fifth studio LP Save Rock And Roll.

“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music,” FOB said in a statement, reported by MTV. “It’s why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place.” They’re wasting no time in getting back onto the stage either, the group playing an intimate show in Chicago on Monday night (February 11) before heading to New York the night after and Los Angeles on Thursday, February 14 for two more similarly small-sized shows. “This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up,” the band said in Monday’s statement. “We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. The future of Fall Out Boy starts now.”

The group’s initial run brought them huge success, with three albums breaking the top ten of the US Billboard charts, and 2007’s Infinity On High going to number one. The group have also gone three times platinum. Their last album was Folie a Deux, released in 2008, after which they went on hiatus – until now.
