After a three-year break, during which time it wasn't clear whether they had officially split up, Fall Out Boy announced they're getting the band back together.
A press release Monday said, "'My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)' is the first single from Fall Out Boy's new album, Save Rock and Roll, which will be released globally on May 6/7, 2013, the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy's first full-length studio album in 2003, Take This To Your Grave."
The release also states: "In conjunction with today’s news, Fall Out Boy will play three intimate one-night-only club dates for their fans this week, starting tonight in Chicago (Subterranean), tomorrow night in New York City (Webster Hall Studio), and Los Angeles (Roxy) on Thursday night (Feb. 7). The Save Rock and Roll tour kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee, Wis., at the Rave (tour dates to follow)."

It looks like the members of Fall Out Boy may be on the outs – for good.
After months of speculation, Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump have confirmed that their band, Fall Out Boy, is not together at this time.
"As far as I know," bassist Wentz wrote on his blog Tuesday, "Fall Out Boy is on break ... I can't predict that I'd ever play in Fall Out Boy again."
Meanwhile, frontman Stump issued a more definitive statement. "I'm not in Fall Out Boy right now," he told Spin.com. Wentz added via Twitter that to continue in the band, "Something would have to change in my head or my heart – not my wallet. It'd have to be real."
And this is a real ending, at least according to Wentz, who Tweeted, "A hiatus is forever until you get lonely or old, [and] I don't plan on either."

After a paperwork problem nixed Fall Out Boy's plans for a surprise free concert in a New York City park, the group vowed that the show would go on – even without instruments.
The band, whose album Folie A Deux will be released Tuesday, led the crowd that had gathered to see them at Washington Square Park in an a cappella sing-a-long Monday. The moment was captured on amateur video and by bassist Pete Wentz's own camera phone, with a picture and apology posted on his blog.
"I genuinely feel sorry that we weren't able to play today," Wentz wrote to fans. "They said if we picked up a guitar we would be sorry ... But we knew this probably was gonna happen. We didn't go through the proper process 'cause we wanted it to be free and fun and spontaneous. So it was our fault."
"Anyway," he adds, "thanks for singing with us. We'll make it up to you. It means a lot that you even showed up."

The guys of Fall Out Boy went a little off script while recording a recent public service announcement about global warming.
The band did the 30-second PSA for dosomething.org, a Web site encouraging kids to get involved with everything from human rights to education.
It took a few tries to get the ad out, and the outtakes following the real ad are amusing.
In one cut scene, singer Patrick Stump jokes, "Carpool to save gas. Because I know you're in grade school and driving is what you do."

A new marriage and a baby on the way won't keep Pete Wentz from releasing a new album with fellow members of Fall Out Boy. The only question is when.
"The band is really not talking about a record yet, but we're all itching to do one," guitarist Patrick Stump tells Billboard.com, adding that at Wentz's recent wedding to Ashlee Simpson, "we were like, 'We should do another record.'"
Stump hopes the band performs a few concerts this year to avoid getting rusty. Meanwhile, they are concentrating on "life stuff." While Wentz prepares to start a family, Stump is directing a short film and producing music by Gym Class Heroes.
“We're always writing," says Stump. "We've had material since [2007's] Infinity on High dropped. So there is plenty just floating around.”
“There is nothing 'hiatus' or 'indefinite' about what's going on with Fall Out Boy right now."

In their new video, Fall Out Boy pays homage to Michael Jackson with their cover of his iconic "Beat It" – and they're giving PEOPLE.com a glimpse at exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the video.
"It's not an ode to a specific Michael Jackson video," bassist Pete Wentz tells PEOPLE. "There are between 25 and 50 nods to Michael Jackson in the video – some that you need to pause and do a frame-by-frame to figure it out."
Some of the tributes are obvious: moon-walking and one-gloved dancers, or the band's '80s-inspired wardrobe.
Also look for celeb cameos, including Arrested Development's Tony Hale as a karate sensei. "It's officially going to be my favorite video of ours just 'cause of Tony," says guitarist Joe Trohman.

Carrie Underwood's been seeing her hometown boyfriend for four months now, but that doesn't mean the American Idol star isn't going to look if, say, Jesse Metcalfe walked in the room. "He looks really nice. He looks toned and fit, but he's not scary, you know, like muscle-y," she tells us about the Desperate Housewives actor. And while Metcalfe has what she calls the ideal physique, Underwood says she needs to work on her own. "I don't really exercise," says this month's Self magazine cover girl, who was out celebrating her appearance on VH1's Most Wanted Bodies. "Before we go on tour I think I'm gonna work on that myself. I just want to be more toned. Jeans fit really great, but I can't wear a tight shirt or anything because it shows my rolls!"
