About Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy eventually signed an offer with Fueled by Ramen, the Florida-based label co-owned by Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello, but also got an advance from Island Records to record a correct debut album. The advance had a right of first refusal for Island on Fall out Boy's following cd, however it also financed the recording of Take This to Your Grave, which occurred at Butch Vig's Smart Studios substance in Madison, Wisconsin, with manufacturer Sean O'Keefe (Lucky Boys Confusion, Motion City Soundtrack) at the helm. Take This to Your Grave appeared in May 2003, and Fall out Boy earned favorable reviews for succeeding gigs at South by Southwest and different tour looks. Their break-out album, the ambitious From Under the Cork Tree, followed in spring 2005, rapidly reaching the Top Ten of Billboard's album graph and generating 2 Top Ten hits with "Sugar We're Going Down" and the furiously encouraging "Dance, Dance." The album went double platinum and made the musicians a Grammy election for Best New Artist.

Fall Out Boy's underground star condition-- driven by the particularly extroverted Wentz, who likewise gained exposure with his clothes line, his Decaydance record label (an imprint of Fueled by Ramen), and eventually a celebrity relationship with Ashlee Simpson-- had actually boiled over into the mainstream. They toured extensively, supporting the album with international trips, arena programs, TRL goes to, late-night television shows, and music award reveals. Without taking a break, the men then hunched down to work on their follow-up record with From Under the Cork Tree manufacturer Neil Avron (and, somewhat surprisingly, Babyface). Infinity on High, whose title was drawned from a line in one of Van Gogh's personal letters, appeared in early February 2007, headed by the hit solitary "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race." The album continued Fall Out Boy's streak, debuting at primary on the Billboard charts and going platinum one month later on. Released in early 2008, the CD/DVD package Live in Phoenix recorded the band's strength as a fancy live act, while the full-length studio effort Folie à Deux followed later that year.
