Fall Out Boy
So Much For (Tour) Dust
Fall Out Boy have cemented their position as one of rock music’s biggest-selling bands. In January 2023, Fall Out Boy announced that their eighth studio album So Much (For) Stardust will be released March 24th 2023 on Fueled By Ramen/Elektra.
The album marks the band’s first new album in more than five years. In July 2021, Fall Out Boy embarked on THE HELLA MEGA TOUR in the US alongside Green Day & Weezer, playing live in front of over 1 million fans on a sold-out global stadium tour and marking the first time the three bands had headed out on the road together.
The U.S. leg included numerous sold-out stadium gigs – including renowned venues like Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Boston’s Fenway Park and Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. Critical and fan acclaim poured in, with USA Today hailing it “the most stacked line-up of any rock tour in 2021,” Billboard noting that each night was “serving up a buffet of hits in front of one of the largest concert crowds,” and Rolling Stone calling it “wildly entertaining.” The tour was nominated for both Major Tour of the Year and Best Rock Tour at the Pollstar Awards in 2021. The international leg of the tour took place throughout the summer of 2022.
Fall Out Boy’s seventh studio album M A N I A debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in January 2018 and garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album. The record marked the band’s third consecutive and fourth overall #1 album respectively in the US and their third consecutive #2 album in the UK. The album featured the global smash “The Last of the Real Ones.
In 2015, Fall Out Boy released their platinum, sixth studio album AMERICAN BEAUTY/AMERICAN PSYCHO, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, #2 on the UK Official Albums Chart and peaked at #1 on iTunes in more than 22 countries upon its January 2015 release. The album’s first two singles “Centuries” and “Uma Thurman” have been RIAA-certified 4x and 2x platinum, respectively.
AMERICAN BEAUTY/AMERICAN PSYCHO followed the GRAMMY-nominated band’s gold-certified album SAVE ROCK AND ROLL, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, #2 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries upon its April 2012 release and features the multiplatinum hit “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and hit “Alone Together.” SAVE ROCK AND ROLL was the band’s second #1 debut; Platinum selling “Infinity On High” topped the US chart in 2007, reached #3 in the UK and followed multi-platinum breakthrough album “From Under The Cork Tree” released in 2005.
They were most recently nominated for a 2019 MTV Video Music Award for BEST ROCK VIDEO (“Bishops Knife Trick”) and have won FAVORITE ARTIST: ALTERNATIVE ROCK at the 2015 American Music Awards, BEST ROCK VIDEO at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards and BEST ALTERNATIVE BAND at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards. Fall Out Boy has also written the song “Immortals,” featured in the Oscar®-nominated Disney hit movie Big Hero 6, which topped the box office upon its November 2014 release and has already surpassed $222 million at the domestic U.S. box office and topped $650 million globally.
