Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy was formed in early 2001 by friends Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman, who had played in various hardcore punk bands in the Chicago area. Inspired by bands they grew up listening to, the pair decided to start their own band. Trohman met Patrick Stump in a Borders Bookstore. Stump introduced himself to Trohman when he overheard him talking about the band Neurosis, which they shared a mutual interest. Stump auditioned as a drummer, but the discovery of his impressive vocal range led to his placement as the lead vocalist. Several line-up changes in the rhythm guitar and drumming positions occurred before drummer Andy Hurley joined.
After being nameless for their first two shows, they decided that their audience should decide. At the end of their second show they asked the audience to yell out ideas for a name. One audience member suggested "Fallout Boy", a reference to the sidekick of Radioactive Man from The Simpsons. The following year, the band debuted with a self-released demo and followed it up with the May 2002 release of Project Rocket / Fall Out Boy split EP with Project Rocket, on the small independent label Uprising Records.
The group released a mini-LP, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, on Uprising in 2003. The album was recorded in two days in early 2002. During this period the band played small shows in basements and clubs as part of the underground Chicago music scene, before any mainstream success.
After signing to indie label Fueled by Ramen, they released their first full-length album, Take This to Your Grave, in May 2003. The album has been credited with earning the band's first significant fan base. Fall Out Boy extensively toured all year long at small venues, and was the opening act for bands such as Less Than Jake, Yellowcard, Taking Back Sunday and blink-182.
In mid-2003 Fall Out Boy signed with major label Island Records. In the meantime of recording their mainstream debut, the band released the acoustic EP/DVD My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue in May 2004. It debuted at No. 153 on the Billboard 200, the band's first entry on the chart.
Take This to Your Grave, released in May 2005, it debuted on the US Billboard 200 at No. 9, selling over 68,000 copies in its first week. It marked a lengthy stay of 77 weeks on the charts, logging 19 weeks in the top 20. The album was certified double platinum after selling more than 2.5 million albums in the US alone, and it has sold over three million copies worldwide, making it the band's best-selling album.
From Under the Cork Tree was bolstered by the hit lead single "Sugar, We're Goin Down" which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 6 on the defunct Billboard Pop 100. The song spent five weeks in the top 10 and logged 20 weeks in the top 20. The song has sold over two million copies and is certified double platinum by the RIAA. The second single released from the album, "Dance, Dance", became Fall Out Boy's second top 10 single when it peaked at No. 9 on the Hot 100 and stayed in the top 20 for 14 weeks. It reached No. 6 on the Pop 100, becoming the bands highest charting single in terms of airplay when it reached No. 2 on the Modern Rock Charts.
After taking a two-month-long break following the band’s Black Clouds and Underdogs tour, the band returned to the studio to begin work on a follow-up effort. The band began writing songs for the new album while touring, and intended to quickly make a new album in order to keep momentum in the wake of its breakthrough success. In early 2007, Fall Out Boy released their fourth studio album, Infinity on High. The album marked a departure in Fall Out Boy’s sound in which the band implemented a diverse array of musical styles including funk, R&B, and flamenco.
A CD and DVD of live material recorded during a concert at Phoenix's Cricket Wireless Pavilion in June 2007, at the Honda Civic Tour, was released in April 2008. Of note, the album, simply called Live in Phoenix, contains a new studio recording covering Michael Jackson's "Beat It" with John Mayer as a guest guitarist. The song premiered for the first time on Wentz's site Friends or Enemies, and was released as a single in March 2008. Following its release, it debuted at No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at No. 19.
In December 2008, the band released their fifth studio album, Folie à Deux. The band further evolved their sound and took a new musical direction for the record. Folie debuted and peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 150,000 units. The album was certified gold for shipments of 500,000 copies. The lead single preceding the album, "I Don't Care", was released in September 2008 to iTunes, and was No. 68 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008. "I Don't Care" peaked at No. 21 on the Hot 100. The second single to receive radio play was "America's Suitehearts", released in December 2008.
In January 2009, Fall Out Boy announced they would embark on the Believers Never Die Tour Part Deux (its name is based on their 2004 Believers Never Die Tour) with supporting acts All Time Low, Hey Monday, Cobra Starship, Metro Station and 50 Cent. The group also performed alongside Kanye West and Kid Rock at the Youth Ball for the inauguration of President Obama. They also played for TV performances, including the 2009 Toyota Concert Series on the Today Show in May 2009.
In April 2009 an EP was released on iTunes, titled America's Suitehearts: Remixed, Retouched, Rehabbed and Retoxed. It contains a remix from Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus. Fall Out Boy, along with Weezer, were the supporting acts for Blink-182's summer reunion tour in 2009.
Fall Out Boy released a greatest hits compilation album titled Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits in November 2009 soon after their tour with Blink-182 ended. It includes all the band's songs previously released as singles as well as two new songs and two rarities. One of the new songs is the full version of "Alpha Dog", which was released as the only single. It was a track that was previously released as a demo on the Welcome to the New Administration mixtape, and the other ""From Now On We're Enemies"".
In November 2009, the four band members announced they would be taking an indefinite hiatus, saying they were unsure of the future of the band. But in February 2013, the band officially announced that their hiatus had ended; announcing a new album entitled Save Rock and Roll, as well as a tour. They commemorated the occasion in their hometown of Chicago by torching all of their previous albums at the original location of 1979's Disco Demolition Night, the place where Comiskey Park once stood. The lead single from the album, "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" was released following the announcement. Fall Out Boy performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February 2013. Save Rock and Roll was released April 16, 2013. The album debuted at No. 1 on the charts by moving 154,000 copies.
On October 15, 2013 the band released a new EP called PAX AM Days in collaboration with producer Ryan Adams. PAX AM Days consists of punk and hardcore influenced tracks recorded during a two-day "marathon" session with producer Ryan Adams and the band in July 2013 at PAX AM Studios. PAX AM Days became the band's second release in 2013 after the comeback album Save Rock and Roll, and marks a return to their hardcore musical roots with aggressive guitar work, the "antithesis" to the polished Save Rock and Roll.
Although their blend of emo-pop and slick, anthemic rock & roll eventually made them stars on both sides of the Atlantic, Paramore began humbly enough in Franklin, Tennessee, where Hayley Williams met brothers Josh and Zac Farro after moving to town from Mississippi. Already a powerhouse vocalist at the age of 13, Williams joined a band that the Farro siblings had formed with local guitarist Taylor York. She left the group soon after, signing with Atlantic Records as a solo artist instead, but clashed with the label over the direction of her music. Seeking to front her own band, Williams convinced Atlantic to let her piece together a full lineup. Josh and Zac Farro were recruited for the job, as were guitarist Jason Bynum and bassist Jeremy Davis.
All We Know Is Falling From the start, Paramore's poppy melodies and zippy songwriting seemed to contradict the fact that none of the bandmates (with the exception of Davis) were older than 18. To help attract a younger audience, Atlantic decided to share the band with Fueled by Ramen, a Florida-based label with a strong roster of emo-pop acts. Fueled by Ramen officially co-signed the group in April 2005, and Paramore's full-length debut, All We Know Is Falling, was released later that summer. In addition to a performance at New Jersey's Bamboozle Festival and multiple dates on the Warped Tour circuit, Paramore played shows with such simpatico bands as Simple Plan and Straylight Run. Hunter Lamb replaced Bynum on guitar in December 2005, and the band spent the following summer on the Warped Tour once again, cementing its relationship with the fans who had caught the previous summer's shows. Lamb parted ways with the group in early 2007 to get married, and Paramore continued onward as a quartet.
Riot! The following summer saw the release of the band's sophomore album, Riot!, which was recorded alongside producer David Bendeth. Buoyed by the popular singles "Misery Business," "crushcrushcrush," and "That's What You Get," Riot! turned Paramore into industry heavyweights, going platinum within its first 13 months of release and earning the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. With original guitarist Taylor York now back on board, Paramore toured exhaustively in support of the record, even landing a two-month jaunt across the continental U.S. with their idols, Jimmy Eat World. Meanwhile, the band found time to contribute two songs to the best-selling Twilight soundtrack, including the Top 40 single "Decode." A live album entitled The Final Riot! was released several weeks after the Twilight soundtrack, capturing the group's strength as a live act and concluding the long touring cycle in support of Riot!
Paramore publicly struggled with fame throughout 2008. Of particular note was the attention lavished upon Williams, whom many media outlets deemed to be the leader of the group. Rumors of a breakup began to circulate, yet Paramore's lineup remained intact, and the band retreated to a California studio in 2009 to work on a third album. Following a popular summer tour with No Doubt, the group issued Brand New Eyes, a pensive record that featured some of Paramore's strongest songwriting to date. The album debuted at number two with sales of 175,000 copies.
Brand New Eyes went gold by the end of the year, and "The Only Exception" became the band's highest-charting single to date in America. Meanwhile, Williams scored her own chart-topper with "Airplanes," a multi-platinum collaboration with hip-hop artist B.o.B. Long-simmering tensions between Williams and the Farro brothers had reached a boiling point by late 2010, though, resulting in a split between Josh and Zac Farro -- considered by many to be the band's co-founders -- and the three remaining members. Days after his exit, Josh Farro wrote a blog post detailing the band's history, including previously unknown details regarding Atlantic's early involvement and Williams' solo contract.
Paramore released the single "Monster," which was included on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack. This was the first song recorded without the Farro brothers and first to feature York taking over all guitar duties. The following year, Paramore began work on new material with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, Neon Trees and M83) and former Lostprophets drummer Ilan Rubin. In 2013, Paramore returned with their fourth studio album, the eponymously titled Paramore. Including the singles "Now" and "Still into You," the album featured an expansive stylistic approach that found the group incorporating a variety of sounds from synth pop to gospel.
On July 22, 2013, Paramore announced "The Self-Titled Tour", starting in October 2013. "The Self-Titled Tour" takes the band through 26 cities across North America, including Paramore's first headline show at Madison Square Garden. Following this, Paramore announced seven Oceania tour dates for January 2014. On August 22, 2013, the band announced their own cruise, called the "PARAHOY! Cruise", sailing from Miami to the Bahamas and back on board the Norwegian Pearl, set to sail on March 7, 2014.
"Now" was released as the album's lead single January 22, 2013. Paramore streamed the song on their website January 21, and the song was then made available for sale along with an album pre-order through iTunes. The music video for "Now" was directed by Daniel "Cloud" Campos and premiered live on MTV on February 11, 2013. The album's second single, "Still Into You" was released on March 14, 2013. A lyric video for "Still Into You" was uploaded to YouTube on March 13, 2013 after the band performed it live for the first time at the 2013 South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. "Daydreaming" serves as the third single from the album. It was released on December 2, 2013 only in the UK, and the music video premiered in November 5, 2013"Ain't It Fun" has been confirmed as the fourth single from Paramore. The radio edit premiered August 28, 2013, and the release date for the single has been announced for February 11, 2014.A music video for the song was planned, but was put on hold in favor of a music video for "Daydreaming"; A new video for "Ain't It Fun" has been shot and will be released in January 2014 along with a new single that's been kept under wraps.
After writing songs together for three years for their respective solo albums (which were never produced), Boyd and Hansen realized they had a group forming. In 2009, the duo sent two of their songs ("Stress" and "Money") into the Danish National Radio P3's Karriere Kanonen ("Career Cannon") competition. Of the 973 bands that entered, New Politics was one of 42 selected to perform—despite not yet being an official band, and not having selected the final line-up. Boyd and Hansen hired Poul Amaliel to play drums. The new trio were among the top four winners and went on to play in a major music festival in Denmark.
In November 2009, New Politics signed with RCA. They did a brief UK tour, and then went on to do a nation-wide US tour. They also decided to move to the US, because of the new record deal with RCA. They currently reside in a loft apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. The band performed at the South by Southwest festival in 2010.
On July 13, 2010 they released their first album, the self-titled New Politics. It featured ten tracks, including their hit single "Yeah Yeah Yeah". They also made an official video for this single which was filmed in New York City. The album received a mixed review from Allmusic, who thought that the band's influences were too obvious. They embarked on a 30-date tour of the US to promote the album, and supported Thirty Seconds to Mars on the Into the Wild Tour in September and October 2010. They made a second video for their single, "Dignity", and released it on Myspace.com on October 8, 2010. Like "Yeah Yeah Yeah" it was also filmed in New York City. In autumn of 2010, drummer Poul Amaliel left the band to go back to Denmark.
On November 26, 2012, a song titled "Harlem" was promoted as the first single from their second album, A Bad Girl in Harlem, released on May 21, 2013. Beginning in late 2013, New Politics' "Harlem" broke onto U.S. radio. Stations like Fly 92.3 began playing the song by request.
From May 28-June 26, 2013, the band served as the opening act for pop-punk band Fall Out Boy during their Save Rock and Roll Spring Tour.On July 21, 2013, New Politics performed "Harlem" at Guy Code Honors at Comic-Con. The band served as the opening act for Pink during their The Truth About Love Tour at select dates until November 6, 2013. They accompanied Panic! At The Disco for their Europe Tour in November of 2013.
