Fall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette,
Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz,
lead guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.
The band originated from Chicago's hardcore punk scene, with which all members were involved at one point.
The group was formed by Wentz and Trohman as a pop punk side project of the members' respective hardcore bands, and Stump joined shortly thereafter.
The group went through a succession of drummers before landing Hurley and recording the group's debut album, Take This to Your Grave (2003).
The album became an underground success and helped the band gain a dedicated fanbase through heavy touring, as well as some moderate commercial success.
Take This to Your Grave has commonly been cited as an influential blueprint for pop punk music in the 2000s.
The band's debut album, Take This to Your Grave, was issued by Fueled by Ramen in May 2003.
Previously, one of the band's earliest recordings, Evening Out with Your Girlfriend,
had not seen release until shortly before Grave in March 2003, when the band had gained considerable momentum.
"Our record was something being rushed out to help generate some interest, but that interest was building before we
could even get the record out," said Sean Muttaqi.
The band actively tried to stop Uprising from releasing the recordings
(as the band's relationship with Muttaqi had grown sour), as the band viewed it as a "giant piece of garbage"
recorded before Hurley's involvement that the band members ceased to consider the debut album of the group.
Gradually, the band's fanbase grew in size as the label pushed for the album's mainstream success.
According to Wentz, shows began to end in a near-riot and the group were banned from several
venues because the entire crowd would end up onstage.The band gained
positive reviews for subsequent gigs at South by Southwest (SXSW) and various tour appearances.
The band joined the Warped Tour for five dates in the summer of 2004, and on one date the band had
only performed three songs when the stage collapsed due to the large crowd.s
The band graced the cover of the August 2004 edition of Alternative Press, and listening
stations at Hot Topic partially helped the album move 2,000-3,000 copies per week by Christmas 2004,
at which point the label considered the band "tipping" into mainstream success.
From Under The Cork Tree
From Under the Cork Tree is the second studio album by American rock band Fall Out Boy. It was released on May 3, 2005,
through Island Records as the band's major label debut.
The music was composed by lead vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, with all lyrics penned by bassist Pete Wentz,
continuing the band's songwriting approach they took for some songs on their prior 2003 effort Take This to Your Grave.
Neal Avron handled production duties. Commenting on the record's lyrical themes, Wentz said the lyrics were about
"the anxiety and depression that goes along with looking at your own life.
"In support of their release the group headlined tours worldwide and played at various music festivals. For their Black Clouds
and Underdogs tour the album was re-released as From Under the Cork Tree (Limited "Black Clouds and Underdogs" Edition),
featuring new songs and remixes.
Infinity On High
Infinity on High is the third studio album by American rock band Fall Out Boy, released on February 6, 2007 by Island Records as the follow-up to the band's
commercially successful 2005 album From Under the Cork Tree.
Pre-production began in the group's hometown of Chicago, where writing and rehearsal sessions took place. It was recorded from July to October 2006 at the Pass Studios
in Los Angeles, California and mixed at the Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood.
The music was composed by lead singer and guitarist Patrick Stump and the lyrics were penned by bassist Pete Wentz.
Folie A Deux
Folie à Deux (French for "A Madness Shared by Two") is the fourth studio album by American rock band Fall Out Boy.
Produced by Neal Avron, the album was recorded from July to September 2008 at The Pass Studios and The Casita in Hollywood, California.
As the follow-up to the band's commercially successful 2007 effort Infinity on High,
it was released by Island Records on December 16, 2008, after the original November 4 release was postponed
to avoid conflicts with the United States presidential election. Like the band's two previous releases,
Folie à Deux was musically composed by lead vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, with lyrics penned by bassist Pete Wentz. In regard to the writing process,
the band considered Folie à Deux to be the band's most collaborative record at the time.
Save Rock And Roll
Save Rock and Roll is the fifth studio album by American rock band Fall Out Boy.
It was produced by Butch Walker and released April 12, 2013, through Island Records.
On October 15, the album was re-released with PAX AM Days,
an extended play the band recorded shortly after Save Rock and Roll's release.
Following multiple touring stints, the members of Fall Out Boy decided to take a break at the end of 2009. During the hiatus, each member
of the group pursued individual musical interests.
The band felt it necessary to "decompress" and refrained from referring to the hiatus as a "breakup", acknowledging a possible return in the future.

2015 through Island Records as the follow-up to the band's comeback album Save Rock and Roll (2013).
