Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz: 'Our reunion is like 'Saved By The Bell: The College Years''
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz has described the band's reunion as being like '90s US TV show Saved By The Bell: The College Years.

The bassist compared the bands reformation and the release of their first album since 2008 with going back to school again and meeting up with "old school buddies".

He told Radio 1's Zane Lowe: "It's cool to be back with each other. It feels like catching up again with your old school buddies, but, like, we're back at school again. Its 'Saved By The Bell: The College Years'."

Yesterday (February 4), Fall Out Boy announced that they were reuniting, after being on an official hiatus since 2009, to release new album '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.

It was also announced yesterday that the band will be playing on the Main Stage at this year's Reading And Leeds Festivals. Speaking about performing at the August bank holiday weekender, Wentz added: "Those are the biggest crowds we've ever played in front of ever and I never thought I'd be able to play there again. It'll be awesome."

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 this month, however, when they perform live at London's Underworld venue in Camden on February 25.
