fall out Boy

Fall Out Boy, Fall Out Boy, ...? Oh yeah, exactly - the Simpsons! Die-hard Matt Groening fans are of course not new to this name. After all, this is the shrewd assistant to Radio Active Man, the favorite comic hero of the little yellow protagonist Bart.

Fall Out Boy is also the name of the American pop punkers around front man Patrick Stump. Their songs are suspiciously reminiscent of college rock by the Blink 182 brand and have parallels to Creed, My Chemical Romance or Panic! Recognize At The Disco.

The band's story begins in Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago. Guitarist Joe Trohman and bassist Pete Wentz grow up there, discover the local hardcore scene and start their own bands. This is how Wentz met Stump and drummer Andy Hurley. When the individual band projects fizzled out, the three decided to start over and found their band without a name.

At first they are a bit unmotivated: "We wanted to do something of our own, but didn't know what it would look like in the end"said Wentz."We didn't even have a name. On our second gig, we played at a college. We asked the audience what to call ourselves and someone shouted 'Fall Out Boy.'"

Fully occupied and now given their own band name, the Chicago guys get down to work and record their first demo. They send this to every music label they can think of and get a response. The first album "Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend" followed on February 25, 2003, but it was not very popular.

Shortly thereafter, they signed to Fueled By Ramen, who later also joined Panic! Sign At The Disco. In May they released "Take This To Your Grave" with which they had their first successes. "Grand Theft Autumn (Where Is Your Boy?)" And "Saturday" are played up and down on the American TV channels Fuse and mtvU, the album achieved gold status - the entry into the mainstream music business was thus successful. A short time later they change their label again and sign with Island Records (The Bravery, Keane, The Killers).

In 2005 bassist Wentz hit the headlines with a drug overdose, but recovered and denied it was a suicide attempt. In the song "7 Minutes In Heaven (Atavan Halen)", included on the follow-up CD "From Under The Cork Tree", he processes this experience.

Mal and take home double platinum. The tracks "Sugar, We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance" become chart successes. This is followed by an extensive tour across America. England also celebrates the musicians, where they play in sold-out halls. You perform with top acts like Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco, Less Than Jake, Yellowcard or Taking Back Sunday and thus expand their fan base.

In May 2006, nude photos of Wentz appeared on the Internet, which secured the band further media interest. In the same year, Fall Out Boy was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist and won an MTV Video Music Award in the "Viewers Choice" category.

The fourth studio album "Infinity On High" will be released in March 2007. They will receive prominent support from rapper Jay-Z, who will provide the intro. The single "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" celebrates a grand entry at number two on the US Billboard charts and ensures that the album reaches platinum status after just a few weeks.

In 2008 they followed up with a DVD. "Live In Phoenix" comes in a deluxe box set, offers all of the band's music videos and also contains five additional tracks on a bonus CD. Shortly before Christmas they bring their fans the fifth studio album "Folie A Deux", followed a year later by the best of "Believers Never Die". When the news followed at the beginning of 2010 that the band would take a break for an indefinite period of time, many heard the bell ringing.

It fits in with the fact that the band members immediately jump into new projects. Guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley together with members of Every Time I Die and Anthrax form a supergroup called The Damned Things. Singer / guitarist Patrick Stump delves into his work on his solo debut "Soul Punk", which will be released in 2012. And woofer Peter Wentz forms the electronic project Black Cards, whose announced album, however, is still waiting.

But Fall Out Boy are clandestinely working on their return: The songs are created in silence, and in February 2013 the fans hear about the end of the break. The new album "Save Rock And Roll" follows almost two months later. Fall Out Boy prove: If you name yourself after a secondary character in the legendary "The Simpsons" series, you shouldn't write it off so quickly.

In the same year, clattering jam sessions in the studio resulted in the productive trio's "Pax Am Days", which lasted only a quarter of an hour, where concentrated power meets creative implementation. At the beginning of 2015, Fall Out Boy's "American Beauty / American Psycho" attempted a musical reconsideration that cannot follow on from the typical previous works. Nevertheless, the disc throws off a veritable single hit with "Immortals", which they wrote especially for the Disney animated film "Baymax".

In 2016 Fall Out Boy took part in the remake of the eponymous "Ghost Busters" title song with hip-hop great Missy Elliot, before their new album "Mania" hit stores at the beginning of 2018 after some delays.
