When Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz teased the fans to guess who they got to perform in their upcoming album Save Rock & Roll, he hinted at a hair color:
wanna guess what blonde hair singer we got on the record?

The fans’ answers ranged from Miley Cyrus to Madonna (and even Taylor Swift) but no one got close to the right answer so it’s good thing that the band revealed who it was the next day, Thursday, March 21, by posting it on their Twitter account.

Yep, that’s right. It’s none other than Kurt Cobain’s widow and Hole frontwoman, Courtney Love. The 6-second video embedded on the tweet features a snippet of the song as pictures of C-Love is flashed on the screen in rapid-fire succession with her declaring “It’s Courtney, bitch.”

Aside from Love, Wentz has also confirmed that the new album would feature Elton John in the collaboration after vocalist Patrick Stump tweeted a picture of himself together with the British legend in a studio with a hashtag “save rock and roll.”

The album Save Rock & Roll is said to be released on April 16.
After being on hiatus for more than 3 years since 2009, pop/punk group Fall Out Boy is now setting the stage for their return with the announcement of a new album and a tour! And to kick it off, they release a new single titled My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up), which is now available on iTunes. It’s going to come off of their upcoming fifth album Save Rock and Roll that’s due out on May 7. The tour, on the other hand, will commence on May 14 at the Rave in Milwaukee, WI. (See full tour dates below this article).

But before we start calling this a reunion, it’s not, as the band stated on their website, “This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up.” During their hiatus, lead singer Patrick Stump released a solo album titled Soul Punk while bass player Pete Wentz launched a project called Black Cards. Trohman and Hurley joined the heavy metal band The Damned Things.
To promote their return, FOB will be playing a series of shows around the world, which just started in Chicago and will then end in Melbourne, Australia by the end of March.
