Transcript of Fall Out Boy

What is Fall Out Boy? Fall Out Boy is an American Pop Punk/Alternative/Emo band. They were formed in 2001, and toured and released albums through late 2009, when they went on hiatus. They recently have come back with their newest album, Save Rock and Roll. One of their earliest fans came up with their name. 2001 - Present by Lizzie and Alexis Members Patrick Stump is from Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. His real last name is Stumph, but he had it legally changed, because people were pronouncing it wrong, and he didn't want any confusion. He met Joe at a local Borders, and after a long conversation, Joe asked Patrick if he wanted to join his band. He originally played drums, but they soon realized his real talent was at vocals. He is the band's main music writer, while Pete does the lyrics. From 2001 - 2009 he toured with the band to promote their albums, but when they went on hiatus in late 2009, he started a solo career. His first EP was called Truant Wave (2011), which featured Spotlight (Oh, Nostalgia) and Love, Selfish Love, with 4 other songs. Patrick's full length album, entitled Soul Punk, was also released in 2011. It featured the song This City, featuring Lupe Fiasco. During this time, he also wrote several songs for bands such as Gym Class Heroes and Cobra Starship. In late 2012, Pete contacted Patrick, and together they came up with the song Where Did The Party Go. From there they called Joe and Andy, and in early April 2013 Fall Out Boy released their newest album, "Save Rock and Roll", in which according to Rolling Stone "underrated frontman Patrick Stump, is in fine voice on Save Rock and Roll."

Before he was in FOB, he was involved with several hardcore punk bands in the underground Chicago scene. Pete writes almost all of the bands' lyrics, and also occasionally contributes to the music writing. He has had many problems, such as an overdose of his anxiety medication, which inspired the song 7 Minutes in Heaven (Atavan Halen). Pete was one of the main factors of the hiatus. In an interview with Rolling Stone he stated "My personal life was whatever at the time," he says. "It was really rough. I grew a heinous beard and got blackout drunk, smashed my face and cut it open . . . I could feel the backlash against the band. I mean, I was in such a haze of selfishness and pills it was hard to believe I could feel anything." he also said "I was high on being Pete Wentz," he says. "Now I understand how I was overshadowing the band, especially Patrick." He was married to Ashlee Simpson, and together they have a child, Bronx Mowgli. In 2011 they were divorced. Joe is the "jokester" of the group. Often known by FOB fans by his last name, Trohman is the main reason as to why FOB is together. He met Patrick in Borders and invited him to join his band. He is a Star Wars enthusiast, and collects guitars. Andy Hurley has been friends with Pete Wentz since he was 16. Perhaps the oddest and quietest of the group, Hurley has identified as an anarcho-primivist in the past, which means that he believes humans should live the way they did 10,000 years ago. He is also Straight Edge and a vegan. He has remained the most unchanged through his career. The band's first full length album was released by Fueled By Ramen. While producing this album Pete, Patrick, Joe, and Hurley were broke. They lived of bread and peanut butter, along with whatever they got at the studio. This album was truly a labor of love. Dead on Arrival, from Take This To Your Grave There was no sophomore slump with Fall Out Boy's second album. The most notable songs from the album are Sugar, We're Goin' Down and Dance, Dance. It has sold about 3 million copies since it's release. It is credited with earning the band's initial fanbase. The limited "Black Clouds and Underdogs" release Dance, Dance music video With catchy titles like Thnks Fr Th Mmrs and The (After) Life of the Party, has songs that fall more under the pop category, but still have an edge to them. The album is certified platinum. Unfortunately, the album got leaked before it's official release date Thnks Fr Th Mmrs Folie A Deux 2009 The title roughly translates to "A Madness Shared by Two", this album, according to Patrick Stump, is a commentary on American society and psychology. It's biggest hits were I Don't Care and What a Catch, Donnie, and America's Sweethearts. They also set a Guiness World Record of number of interviews in 24 hours to promote the album. Save Rock and Roll was a secret. They released My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up) on February 4th, 2013, and then released The Phoenix on March 24, 2013. When the album was released on April 15, 2013, it jumped back and forth between #1 and #2 on iTunes (competing with Paramore's self titled album) My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up) Summy C.
