has a two-year-old son Bronx Mowgli with wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz
, and he's been in “dad-land” over the last year. Now, he's looking forward to returning to work with his new band Black Cards, particularly as his child is now old enough to “see the world.”
Pete said: "The great thing right now is that my family is very mobile and are able to tour with me. And I think that's the only thing that would've been a hurdle. But the fact they're kind of able to go, I want to be back out there.
"And it's really cool to be able to see the world and to do it on a record company's dime, so I'd like to kind of do that and I'd like to show my son the world as well."
Pete is also taking part in a charity competition, where he leads one of four teams -- with the others fronted by Run-DMC’s Reverend Run Simmons, New York Yankees star Nick Swisher
and tennis ace Serena Williams
-- who are trying to get to Dallas for the Super Bowl in a race fueled by tweets. Pete, for one, is happy to be raising money for a children’s charity.
He explained in an interview with website PopEater: "My charity is St. Jude's Children Hospital. It's really an important charity to me, especially since becoming a dad the past two years of my life now and god forbid my son ever got sick.
"It's good people who are doing good things for children."
