While walking across the stage to receive the MTV2 Award for “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” the only thing on Fall Out Boy bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz’s mind was “please don’t drop an f-bomb.” Shortly thereafter the band, originally from suburban Chicago, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. But the accolades didn’t stop there. Fall Out Boy won 3 Teen Choice Awards, and the video for “Dance, Dance” won the MTV Video Music Awards for Viewer’s Choice, and was nominated for Best Group Video.

The success of their mega hit album From Under the Cork Tree hasn’t been taken for granted. Instead of resting on their laurels, Fall Out Boy has opted to go immediately back to work in spite of a hectic tour schedule by releasing their next album, Infinity on High. “If you have the songs there, why not record them?” says Wentz. The group’s prolific nature can best be summed by says Patrick Vaughn Stump, lead singer and guitarist, who enthusiastically proclaimed, “fuck down time,” when asked if he’d like a break from the busy schedule. The first single from Infinity On High, “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” is a tongue-in-cheek look at “the way we are so addicted and obsessed with new arts, cultures and loves” Wentz says.

This album is a departure from the band’s previous work, marking Cork Tree producer Neal Avron’s return along with smash hit making R&B producer Babyface for the first time. “We love his approach to melody,” Wentz says on working with Babyface. “Patrick will sing with a greater range and more soul in our new songs and we wanted to find someone to drive that.”
For all their success, the band members have stayed true to their roots; not in the sense that they haven’t changed, but in the sense that they’re making music they love to hear and aren’t changing to appease the tides of trend. Fame has never been the driving force behind the music for the band, and all the recent success hasn’t quite sunk in yet. “I don’t think of music as a career,” Wentz says, “until certain things jar it for you.”

+44 features members of Blink 182, The Casualties and The Nervous Return. The band was formed in 2005 and released their debut album, When Your Heart Stops Beating in September 2006. +44’s first ever gig was a sold-out show on Spetmeber 7th, 2006 at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angles, which was quite a feat considering only one song from the unreleased album had been released. +44's When Your Heart Stops Beating was ranked number 2 in Maxim Magazine’s top 10 music for 2006.
