It’s been a couple of years since the news of the band members going their separate ways. When the band came back in 2012, the pop-punk rock scene was being overrun by dance music.
With “Centuries”, the band’s new single that’s climbing to the 22nd spot on the charts and had played more than 30 millions on Spotify, it’s easy to see that the band has really made a surprising comeback. They just finished their 6th album, American Beauty/American Psycho, that’s due in January 20th and they also have a song, “Immortals”, on the soundtrack of Big Hero 6.
Even the band members are quite surprised with it according to an article on Mashable. They were among the great rulers in the playlists of emo kids back in the mid-2000s, being included in half a dozen of Top 40 hits, as Dave and Brit Morin remember them well.
“We’d survive without radio”, said Pete Wentz, the band’s bassist and lyricist is delighted that the band can still make hit singles. They’re playing 15 radio-station festivals in just 20 days, from Oakland to Georgia. Currently, they are booking a summer amphitheater tour.
