Fall Out Boy reunite with new album 'Save Rock And Roll'

Band unveil new track 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)'

Fall Out Boy reunite with new album 'Save Rock And Roll'
Fall Out Boy have revealed they will release a new album, titled 'Save Rock And Roll', in May.

Watch the video for the first track to be taken from it, 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)', which features the rapper 2Chainz, below.

The band, who were on an official hiatus, released their last album in 2008. Lead singer Patrick Stump released his solo album 'Soul Punk' in 2011 while bassist Pete Wentz started new band Black Cards. However, in a statement posted on their official website, the US emo group explain that they "needed to plug back in and make some music that matters".

The statement reads: "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."

Alongside the new single and album, Fall Out Boy also revealed a string of US tour dates. UK fans will get a chance to see the band live in February, however, when they perform live at London's Underworld venue in Camden on February 25.

Fall Out Boy have released five albums to date, including 2005's 'From Under The Cork Tree' which featured the singles 'Sugar, We're Going Down' and 'Dance Dance'.
