After taking a break for three years, Fall Out Boy has announced they are back and getting the band back together. According to People on Feb. 4, Fall Out Boy released a press release stating they will have some intimated dates this week playing at a few clubs.
Fall Out Boy will be playing in Chicago at Subterranean tonight, Monday. They will play in New York City at Webster Hall Studio on Tuesday and in Los Angeles at Roxy on Thursday.
Fall Out Boy will start their tour, Save Rock and Roll, on May 14 in Milwaukee at the Rave. There will be more tour dates to follow.
In the press release, the band made the statement:
"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 Wentz and Patrick Stump were the first to reveal in 2010 that they were taking a break from their band, but it was not an official split at first. Patrick Stump, singer-guitarist, later announced he had left the group and would not be returning unless something changed in “my head or my heat - not my wallet.” Obviously Stump has had a change of heart.
Patrick Stump has married his girlfriend Elisa Yao since the split and Pete Wentz has split with his wife Ashlee Simpson and has a new girlfriend, Meagan Camper. No doubt fans will be thrilled to see Fall Out Boy back together. Stay tuned for more tour dates.
