Tomorrow: Fall Out Boy Tell The True Story Behind Their Hiatus And Triumphant Return On Our Podcast
Among those of bands from the last two decades, Fall Out Boy’s story is truly remarkable. Four dudes from Chicago’s hardcore punk scene coming together to conquer the genre with a listenable new sound is impressive; further refining that sound until you become one of the most widely-recognized rock’n’roll bands in the world is just mind-boggling. When the band went on hiatus in 2009, plenty of people thought they’d seen the end of an era — but the boys just refused to stay down, and returned to write three more of modern rock’s most unforgettable albums.
In the latest episode of our podcast series Inside Track, in which the true stories behind some of rock history’s most incredible moments are told by the people who lived them, the members of Fall Out Boy reveal what led to their hiatus in 2009, from being physically ground down to finding themselves grossed out by the truths behind the veil of the record industry. Along the way, the band also walk the listener through the tracks on their new greatest hits collection, Believers Never Die – Volume Two.
