Since their launch in 2001, the Illinois band that features Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, and Andy Hurley have hit it big with larger-than-life songs such as “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” “Uma Thurman,” “Dance Dance,” “Immortals,” and “Phoenix.”
The new album was completed with founding guitarist Joe Trohman, but he will not be on the tour after he announced he would be stepping away from the band, but just temporarily: “So, the question remains: Will I return to the fold? Absolutely, one-hundred percent. In the meantime, I must recover which means putting myself and my mental health first. Thank you to everyone including my bandmates and family, for understanding and respecting this difficult, but necessary, decision.”
As for the tour, on board to open at select stops are Alkaline Trio, Bring Me the Horizon, New Found Glory, The Academy Is…, Royal & the Serpent, Daisy Grenade, Carr, Games We Play, and Four Year Strong.
The tour hits the Southland July 1st at North Island Credit Union Amphitheater in Chula Vista, then goes north to Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on July 2nd. (Btw, if you haven’t checked out this stadium yet, do so… it is definitely worth a look-see!)
