A message from the band, as posted on their site:
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…

Chicago residents: Q87.7 is giving away tickets to tonight’s show at Subterranean all throughout the day.
Believers never die. Thanks for believing in our news and reading the site guys!
Here’s the text of our original post. We won’t update any of the info below (updates in red were added yesterday), but if any new information becomes available we’ll add it up top or in a separate post:
Last week, we brought word that seminal ’00s pop punk/pop rock band Fall Out Boy were set to reunite, as first reported by PropertyOfZack. News of the reunion quickly spread and was promptly dispelled by members of the band and by their manager. This is not the first time rumblings of a reunion have occurred since the band began a hiatus in late 2009. The news of this reunion was believed to be more than just a rumor, however, and was allegedly confirmed by multiple sources close to the band. The band’s denial was anticipated, and expected to continue until the official announcement was actually made.
We’re incredibly excited to report, and can exclusively confirm from sources close to the band, that Fall Out Boy are officially set to announce their comeback tomorrow, Monday, February 4. As noticed and reported several days ago, the band is set to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday, February 13.
Here’s what we know for sure:
- The announcement is coming tomorrow. Whether that means midnight, morning, or during the day is unknown. UPDATE: Chicago alternative radio station Q87.7 (known to be friendly to FOB) is making a secret major announcement Monday morning at 8AM (central). All of the members of Fall Out Boy are currently in Chicago. We’ll be listening in to provide you with live updates!
- The Kimmel thing is a done deal. Will they perform a new song? Possible, but don’t hold your breath.
- Fall Out Boy are set to play a secret show this Tuesday in New York City. We don’t know the time or location, hence the “secret.”
- The band got together around 2 months ago to write and rehearse in LA. Whether new material will result from this is unknown. It’s unclear if the band spent any of this time recording, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see a new track materialize within the next few weeks.
- There will definitely be a tour following the band’s reunion announcement. We’re unclear on the timeframe, scope, and whether or not it will officially be a Take This to Your Grave 10th Anniversary Tour. Smart money’s on a late spring start, extending through the summer.
Here’s what we think we know:
- Rumblings of secret shows have been floating around for awhile. New York’s a sure thing, but it’s unclear if any other secret shows are planned. We’d bet on Chicago and/or LA, if they’re happening at all.
- Take This to Your Grave 10 tour seems pretty likely, and we’ve heard talk about it, but it’s not confirmed just yet.
- Word on the street is that the band is set to play the Skate and Surf festival in New Jersey. Everyone connected to the festival has been adamantly denying this fact though, so if it’s not announced within the next week or so, it might not be happening after all. Despite the denials, it still seems like a strong possibility, however. UPDATE: PropertyOfZack has pointed out that Skate and Surf is set to begin announcing more artists on Monday. Coincidence?
- New music is expected to drop this year. Whether it’s a full record or not is unclear. We also don’t know the timeframe.
- This comeback will last for the foreseeable future. Also unconfirmed, but we believe the band plans to make a proper return, not just a one-off tour or temporary reunion.
- UPDATE: Some commenters on AbsolutePunk.net have also pointed out that the band fun. have been teasing a big announcement on Monday as well. Though this is quite possibly a coincidence, the similar appeal, label connection, and band’s relatively open schedule definitely makes the possibility of a joint tour seem not entirely out of the question.
We’ll update tomorrow once the band makes the formal announcement. As with any high-profile plans, details could change at the last minute. The wheels are definitely in motion though, and FOB fans can stop being cautiously optimistic and start being flat-out excited now!
