Fall Out Boy Biography

Fall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley. The band originated from Chicago's hardcore punk scene, with which Wentz was heavily involved. The group was formed by Wentz and Trohman as a pop punk side project of their respective hardcore bands, and Stump joined shortly thereafter. The group went through a succession of drummers before landing Hurley and recording their 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.

Following the release of Believers Never Die - Greatest Hits, the band took a hiatus from 2009 to 2012 to "decompress," exploring various side projects. They regrouped and recorded Save Rock and Roll (2013), which gave the band their second career number one and produced the 5x platinum top 20 single "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)." Their sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho (2015), released worldwide on Island Records, was preceded by the 4x Platinum top 10 hit ...
