Fall Out Boy 'Plan On Being A Band For A Long Time'

Pop punk outfit Fall Out Boy have promised their fans that their recent comeback won’t be short-lived, and that they ‘plan on being a band a long time’.

The band’s long-awaited return to music was announced earlier this month, with the unveiling of a brand new single, album, and tour. But, after tickets for their comeback gigs flew out with incredible haste - some places sold-out before they were even due to go on sale - fans were worried that they may have missed out on their chance to catch the band live.

But, ahead of new album ‘Save Rock and Roll’ and it’s accompanying tour, the band have spoken out about their hopes to remain in the music game for as long as possible - and that fans who missed out on tickets would have plenty more opportunities to catch them in the near future.

Posting via Tumblr, the band said: ”Hi everybody! Holy smokes, this has been an amazing week for us. In the past three shows we’ve done (our first in three years), we’ve been utterly humbled to see so many familiar faces. The thing we’re not as happy to see is that, along with the most amazing audience in the world, there was also the inevitable return of folks looking to exploit and cheat that audience.

“We'd rather play to 10 excited people than 30,000 who are disappointed at having to pay two months' rent to be there. We’re not saying this to fix PR or because we want to protect the 'Integrity', of our 'Brand name', but because we're fans of music ourselves and we remember getting screwed by scalpers too.

“To anybody who managed to get legitimate tickets to our shows, we’re so excited to see you. To the rest of you; we plan on being a band for a long time. Hopefully this isn’t your only chance to see us and hopefully by the time you do, there’s some better way to fight back against scalping. Much love, Fall Out Boy.”

The band are set to perform in London’s Underworld later this month, and will also perform at Reading and Leeds Festival later. Are you hoping to catch them live this year? Let us know your plans in the comment section below.
