|Emerging from Chicago's underground hardcore community, Fall Out Boy has risen to legend status among the emo-pop scene. Since its heyday in the mid-2000s, this act has accumulated a dedicated fan base that remained loyal even through a four-year hiatus. In 2013, the band announced its comeback and is hitting the scene hard with a new album and an extensive Fall Out Boy tour. Snag your Fall Out Boy tickets before they're all gone.|
Despite what seemed like instant success with songs like "Sugar We're Going Down," and "Dance, Dance," the band actually formed long before hitting it big. Fall Out Boy, made up of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley and guitarist Joe Trohman, got together in a Chicago suburb in 2001. Prior to making sweet music together, all band members tried their luck in other local groups, without much success.
After a lackluster self-released demo in 2001, the group made headway in 2002, debuting an LP along with Project Rocket. Their success grew with each new album, before the band decided to take a break to work on side projects in 2008. Stump tried his hand at going solo, while Wentz took up playing with a few other bands as well as working on reality TV. Fans will be pleased to know Fall Out Boy is back together - they released Save Rock & Roll in April 2013 and followed it up with a national tour. This means those who never got a chance to see the band in concert will now have an opportunity to rock out.
This quartet started out as a modest, independent band in 2001 when they self-released their first demo. But they were soon invited to join the Uprising Records family, releasing a split LP and a mini LP, Evening Out with Your Girl. By 2007, the band had made it big, and the third studio album, Infinity on High, proved to be the act's best effort yet. So fans were devastated when they announced an indefinite hiatus in 2009, after the release of their less-than-successful Folie à Deux.
Their mix of catchy hooks and crowd-pleasing energy for which fans who got Fall Out Boy tickets went crazy for.
Now that they're back on the scene, these guys aren't messing around. Their newest release, Save Rock & Roll, is bringing in rave reviews and has proven, even after some rocky roads and years apart, these guys aren't going to fizzle out.
