Today in their hometown of Chicago, multi-platinum Grammy-nominated group Fall Out Boy announced that they have reunited after an indefinite hiatus and will debut their new single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” today on iTunes globally.

They celebrated by burning their back catalog in a bonfire at the site of the original Disco Demolition Night in 1979, old Comiskey Park. They visited B96/Chicago to discuss their new music & video, what went on during their 3 year hiatus, the meaning behind the album title Save Rock And Roll, and their upcoming tour.

Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album Save Rock And Roll will be released on May 7th, 2013, the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy’s first full length studio album in 2003, Take This To Your Grave. It’s their first new studio album since Folie Á Deux in December 2008.

The group shared the meaning behind the album title, “Rock and Roll to me represents an attitude, it represents something inside you. That’s why we go into playing music, and that’s why I wanted to be in the band. We just wanted to do something that is fun and dangerous.”

Fall Out Boy linked up with 2 Chainz for the music video. “We’re on the same label, we’re fans, and we went out to dinner, hung out, played him some music, and came up with this idea for doing the video. He’s awesome. He slayed the video.”

In honor of the big news, the group will perform three one-night-only intimate club shows this week, beginning tonight in Chicago at Subterranean, tomorrow in New York City at Webster Hall Studio, and on Thursday night in Los Angeles at Roxy.

They also announced the  SAVE ROCK AND ROLL U.S. tour that will kick off one week after the album release on May 14 in Milwaukee, WI. Tickets will go on sale February 8th and 9th at Ticketmaster.com.
