The Chicago quartet, made up of Patrick Stump on rhythm guitar/vocals, Pete Wentz on bass, Andy Hurley on drums and Joe Trohman on lead guitar, have firmly left their mark on modern music both as artists and pop culture figures since first banding together in 2001.

Four studio albums, tours across the globe, a handful of critical awards, a comic book, a fashion line, a chain of bars and a video game remake later, the band announced in 2009 that they would be going on an indefinite hiatus to pursue other projects.

During this time, the band stepped away from Fall Out Boy’s signature sound with a range of solo projects. Stump released his solo debut, guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andrew Hurley went heavy metal with super-group The Damned Things and Pete Wentz kept busy with his electropop project Black Cards, writing a novel and hosting reality show Best Ink.

First rumours of the Fall Out Boy’s return to songwriting began to circulate in early 2012 but the world had to wait with bated breath until February 2013 for official confirmation from the band of their comeback.

The track 'My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)’ heralded Fall Out Boy’s triumphant return after three years of absence from the stage and record shelves. The single was the first taste of the band’s fifth studio album, Save Rock and Roll (out now through Universal Music), which sees the band collaborating with the likes of Big Sean, Courtney Love and music icon Elton John.

The time apart definitely lent itself to some phenomenal songwriting with the album debuting at #1 on the iTunes chart of 27 countries across the globe, debuting at the top of the Billboard 200 Chart, reaching #2 on the ARIA Album Charts and selling 154,000 copies in America alone during its first week:

"Save Rock And Roll is Fall Out Boy’s biggest-sounding album to date... Ten years, almost to the day, since the release of their first full-length album, and Fall Out Boy are going stronger than ever." – FasterLouder

"Save Rock And Roll is bonkers, brilliant and it's Fall Out Boy like you've never heard them." – Kerrang!

"... life is more fun with Fall Out Boy than without them." – Rolling Stone

Injecting a home grown flavour into the tour, Melbourne based rock quartet British India will be appearing as Fall Out Boy’s special guests for their entire run of Australian shows.

Currently rocking out at venues nationwide on their Controller tour, British India have become a favourite of many fans and critics with their distinct brand of sharp lyrics, jagged guitars, swelling riffs and infectious hooks.

British India’s released their fourth studio album Controller earlier this year, their first since signing with Liberation Music, which scored them their third consecutive debut in the Top 10 of the ARIA Album Charts. Filled with radio favourites like ‘I Can Make You Love Me’, ‘Summer Forgive Me’and ‘Plastic Souvenirs’, this album is testament to the quartet’s maturity and further honing of their brilliant talent since their last offering.

"...a band that will surely be scoring some serious international recognition before we know it." - The Brag

"The accomplished quartet are taking care of business just fine with a cracking new album that rocks, grinds, sways and races along in all the right places. Part pub rock, part punk and with a big bag of melodies and hooks." - Sunday Herald Sun
