Multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Island Records group Fall Out Boy finally puts an end to years of rumors and speculation, with the official announcement that the band has returned and will globally launch their new single – “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)”. They commemorated the occasion at the site of the original Comiskey Park, the location of Disco Demolition Night in 1979, as they were burning albums.
“My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” is the first single from Fall Out Boy’s new album, SAVE ROCK AND ROLL, which will be released globally on May 6th / 7th, 2013, the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy’s first full length studio album in 2003, Take This To Your Grave. Pre-orders for the album are at www.falloutboy.com.
The SAVE ROCK AND ROLL U.S. tour kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee, WI at the Rave (tour dates to follow). Tickets will go on sale February 8th and 9th at Ticketmaster.
Statement from Fall Out Boy:
“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…”
Pete, Patrick, Andy and Joe
