We’re not too sure what response Fall Out Boy were expecting when they announced their reunion, but it seems that the band never expected it to go down so well. In response to the overwhelming approval, the band have announced via Facebook that they have moved forward the release date of the new album Save Rock and Roll.
Originally, in one fell swoop the band performed a reunion show, dropped Australian tour dates, a new single, and of course album details, though at that point in time they had locked in an arrival date of May for the follow-up to 2008's Folie à Deux. Fans will now be able to sink their teeth into Save Rock and Roll “April 15/16 worldwide.”
The first single, My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) has set the bar high for the rest of the record, but by the sounds/looks of things FOB are in a finer form than ever, making this release all the more anticipated.
The full statement is below:
So when we got this all rolling we didn’t expect it to be so crazy. But we weren’t kidding when we said we had the album done- so why wait? It means the world to us the way you have welcomed us back. “Save Rock and Roll” now out early, April 15/16 worldwide.
