Rock'n'roll will now be saved earlier than planned. Not that anyone shared the news in time for Fall Out Boy's appearance on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The emo-pop platinum-shifters, continuing their semi-surprise return after an underrated 2008 album and a similarly overlooked 2011 solo project, launched into genre-hopping single "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)" with the giddy professionalism of their intimate Chicago live reunion gig — and glow-in-the-dark skeleton costumes. The suits obviously play into the song's monster-under-the-bed lyrical motifs, but they do feel a bit incongruous on a February 13 episode as compared to, say, October 30 (or 31). And poor Jimmy may need to issue a correction: After he told the audience Fall Out Boy's reunion album, Save Rock and Roll, will be out in May, the band announced they were bumping up the U.S. release date to April 16.

Watch the Kimmel performance above, pre-order Save Rock and Roll here, and read the band's latest note below:

So when we got this all rolling we didn’t expect it to be so crazy. But we weren’t kidding when we said we had the album done- so why wait? It means the world to us the way you have welcomed us back. “Save Rock and Roll” now out early, April 15/16 worldwide.
