American pop-punk band Fall Out Boy have put their 4 year hiatus to an end, reuniting with a new album titled Save Rock and Roll, as well as a bunch of live shows across the world.
The new single (above), flew straight into the top 10 on the official iTunes chart in the US and the UK. I’m not really sure what relevance rapper 2 Chainz has to being in the video, but i’m definitely not one to stop a collaboration between two completely different artists to help crush genres and bring music together, even if it doesn’t seem to feature any vocals from him! The four-piece who formed in 2001, released this statement on their website regarding their reunion:
“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…”
Fall Out Boy hit the UK on February 25th, playing the tiny Underworld in Camden. With only 500 tickets available at £16.50, and various ticket buying rumours involving 1 per customer and photo ID, this is definitely gna be a high in demand show! For those who are lucky enough to get one, it’ll be awesome, but I feel incredibly sorry for the thousands of people that’ll miss out. They could’ve easily sold out a venue like Brixton instead! Either way, tickets on sale on Friday 8th February at 9am. But hey, no need to fret if you are one of those that miss out, they also return in August to play Reading and Leeds festival. And for you overseas lot, they’re playing a whole bunch of US dates across May and June 2013.
