Fall Out Boy 2013 promo photo burning records thrash hits

As long-time readers will know, we like to throw the doors to Thrash Hits open every now and again to let musicians have a bit of a shout and rant about something that’s got on their tits. We’ve had Rich from Xerath on political lyrics, Dale from Malefice discuss metal fans’ distrust of success, and Swanny from Monuments on bourgeois concepts regarding spiritual and social fulfilment. The latest in this line of infamany is Daniel Garrod, formerly the drummer of Bastions, who wants to get something off his chest on the subject of freeloading guestlisters. Take it away, Danny….

Fall Out Boy 2013 promo photo burning records thrash hits

So Fall Out Boy are back. We queued up in Camden behind hundreds of teenage girls and dozens of confused Eskimo Callboy fans (their show was originally set to be at The Underworld) to see Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley strut their stuff again

Six things we learnt whilst screaming along to Fall Out Boy in Camden

1) Who cares that it’s only February, the award for “Most Anticipated Gig of the Year” is already pretty much sewn up. By 5 o’clock the queue is snaking around the Underworld with kids desperate to buy spares longingly shooting sideways glances at those with golden tickets to this super-intimate show. Inside the atmosphere is one of hushed excitement and tetchy nervousness. Welcome. It’s here.

Yes, this is an interview with Rob Caggiano Joe Trohman, guitarist of The Damned Things, not Rob Caggiano Joe Trohman, [erstwhile] guitarist of Anthrax Fall Out Boy. This is his other new band. The band about which there is not very much information yet apart from the fact he made the band with Anthrax buddy buddies, Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano, along with Joe Trohman and his bandmate Andy Hurley from Fall Out Boy, and Keith Buckley from Every Time I Die. Here’s a crap interview we did with Rob Joe [via email, via 2 other people, hence the awesome strikethrough-related cock up].

Linkin Park are the biggest selling band of this decade, nay, century. That’s a statement that really hurts, isn’t it. They’ve sold more records than Metallica, Iron Maiden or even The Beatles. Yes, feel free to weep because there doesn’t seem like much to celebrate. Right? WRONG!

March 10th, 2009

Pop punk extravagants, Fall Out Boy have been filling the UK’s arenas recently, so we sent Andy Parker down to hang out with hordes of screaming girls. He eventually manages to get over his issues with the Chicago emos…

Fall Out Boy Arena Thrash Hits Pete Wentz Patrick Stump

Fall Out Boy have several issues in my mind. The first is that they have an attractive bass player with an equally hot celeb wife. The second is that they play incredibly catchy and well-structured rock songs.
