If you were alive and even moderately tuned in to radio, MTV, music mags…OK, they were EVERYWHERE, in the early aughts (that’s the 2000’s to you Millenials) then there’s not a chance in hell that you didn’t rock out to the sounds of Fall Out Boy. Starting with the 2003 mini album Take This To Your Grave the group, made up of Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley, this gang of “post” punks brought not just the thunder, but the songwriting chops, on a run of albums that lit up airwaves and eardums worldwide. Take This To Your Grave,From Under A Cork Tree, Infinity On High -ALL HITS. But then in 2009 the the group announced an indefinite hiatus, and it seemed that the band lovingly named after a Simpson’s character might be done for good.
Jump to 2013. Several solo projects and 4 long years later, Fall Out Boy is back, ready to take over the world again. In rep for their impending world tour in support of the new album Saves Rock and Roll, the band made a stop at, where else, the “best big room in America,” and Chunky photographer Joy Asico was there to capture the moment in all it’s rocktastic glory.
