About Fall Out Boy
Pete Wentz (bass) and Joe Trohman (guitar) formed the pop punk group in the early noughties. At first the band was just a side-project for the pair. Patrick Stump – vocals and guitar – soon joined and, following a search for the right drummer, Andy Hurley completed the line-up.
Their debut release came in 2003: Take This To Your Grave. It was an underground success and saw Fall Out Boy earn a strong fanbase. This was partly due to the band’s extensive touring.
They went on to achieve huge commercial success with From Under The Cork Tree; their second album released in 2005. The collection included the catchy Sugar, We’re Going Down and Dance, Dance. The singles quickly became a favourite amongst fans.
In a short time, Fall Out Boy went from underground success to earning a double platinum album (From Under The Cork Tree) and receiving a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist at the 2006 awards. The band were also at the forefront of the emo pop eruption of the mid-noughties.
Success followed success. 2007’s album, Infinity On High, scored Fall Out Boy their first No.1 album in the US while in the UK it went to No.3 in the charts. More hit singles followed including This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race and Thnks fr the Mmrs.
Their fourth album, Folie a Deux, was followed by Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits. Fall Out Boy then went on a hiatus. 2013 saw the group return stronger than ever landing their second US No.1 album with Save Rock and Roll. The album became the band’s highest-charting release in the UK peaking at No.2.
