About Fall Out Boy
Forming in 2001 in windy Chicago,
Fall Out Boy was the musical brainchild of longtime friends Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman. Wentz had been a longtime figure on
Chicago's local punk and hardcore scene, and found the opportunity to make something unique and different from his projects
of the past. Joined by an ensemble of local rockers, the group was soon playing gigs around Illinois, including their first
show at DePaul University. The band would have a rocky start, not able to cement a dedicated lineup despite the dedication
Wentz and Trohman had to making the band a success.
Putting out their early demo, the band began label shopping in an
effort to find a high profile recording deal that would spark the band's rise to fame. The band passed on offers from smaller
labels and enlisted the help of manager Bob McLynn, and headed back to the recording studio to record more tracks to show
to major labels. They would tour consistently, and by 2004 were touring at the biggest music events across North America,
including Texas' South by Southwest and the infamous Vans Warped Tour.
By mid 2000 the Fall Out Boy hype train was in
full swing, with various media outlets marking them as big up and comers in the rock music scene. The fame would become too
much for Wentz, who went through a mental breakdown at the same time as their best performing record to date, From Under the
Cork Tree, was climbing the Billboard. Wentz would recoup from his breakdown and soon was back on the road again, as the band
received endless publicity surrounding not just their music, but Wentz crazy antics.
Now with five full length albums
and counting, Fall Out Boy have become the icons of a genre as they continue to wow audiences and critics alike with each
and every hit release. They've toured alongside the biggest names in music today, from hardcore panic rockers Paramore to
hardcore mainstays The All-American Rejects. The band is showing no signs of slowing down, recently teasing their sixth studio
release alongside their near constant worldwide tour schedule.
The band's 2005 release From
Under the Cork Tree would catapult Fall Out Boy into the mainstream, selling over three million copies worldwide and spawning
a slew of hit singles that made the band overnight sensations. Produced by Neal Avron at Island Records, the album climbed
to the #9 position on the Billboard 200, and won over seven critical awards including best single from the Teen Choice Awards
and best music video from the MTV Video Music Awards. The band would also score a Grammy nomination for best new artist, spurred
on by their three mega singles "Sugar We're Goin Down", "Dance, Dance", and "A Little Less SIxteen Candles, a Little More
'Touch Me'", with the former most lighting up all all over the Billboard charts.
Part of Fall Out
Boy's success has been attributed to Wentz' lyrics. Wentz has described his inspiration for his writing stemming from a variety
of sources, from great American author Ernest Hemingway to rapper Lil Wayne.
