Pop Punk Artists, Tours

February 4, 2013

Unless you live under a rock you’ve probably already heard that FALL OUT BOY IS BACK! And they came prepared.

Here is a message from the band:

when we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. its 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, patrick, andy, and joe.

Fall Out Boy is ready to bring pop punk back to life in 2013 and this is how they are going to do it…


New album called Save Rock And Roll will hit stores May 7. It is available for pre-order in a variety of different bundles including vinyl, CD, posters, shirts, and more. You can pre-order here.
