Fall Out Boy Say They’ll Be Around For a Long Time

February 10, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Fall Out Boy have promised that they will remain around “for a long time.” The band, who announced their return last week after a three year hiatus and will release a new album Save Rock And Roll in May, posted a statement to their official Tumblr promising fans who didn’t get a chance to buy tickets for their new tour that there will be opportunities in the future.

The band wrote, “We’d rather play to 10 excited people than 30,000 who are disappointed at having to pay 2 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.”
